Curable STDs are actually the most common. The most common STD is Chlamydia and it is a curable STD. This sounds like it is not such a big issue as it has a cure. However, the playing field evens out in favor of the STD, because most of the time the symptoms are not visible or felt by women. Thus it remains in the system because the person has no clue they are infected. If left unattended Chlamydia causes infidelity in women.
Another one of the most common STDs is Gonorrhea. Like Chlamydia it is curable and may only require a onetime prescription or injection. There is no curable herpes or curable HPV. However women have a fighting chance against HPV by getting the Gardasil injection. The injection reduces the chances of contracting or developing HPV. Incurable STDs include HIV/AIDS. It is also the number one killer of entire populations in Africa. HIV/AIDS can be passed on to children if the parent is infected, but there are recent methods of treatment that will reduce the chances of this happening by up to 80%.
The only 100% method of safety when it comes to STDs is to be abstinent. Otherwise condoms are a 99.9% effective option. Eventually STDs will become less prevalent if treatment and prevention become widespread. This was the case with one of the most notorious STDs in history.
Syphilis has been around since the earliest years in western history. It has claimed victims that include kings, queens, and organized crime lords. For centuries it was prevalent and had no cure. However, its centuries old rein has come to an end in these modern times. Syphilis is no longer a prevalent STD and it has a cure although the cure came centuries too late for Al Capone and King Edward VI. One penicillin injection is enough to rid the body of this disease, which can cause brain and cardiac damage if left without medical treatment.
Regular testing should be done even within marriages. It is a taboo subject that can ruin many marriages; but the truth is that over 40% of STD infections occur within marriages. This is an eye-opener for people to realize their life is worth protecting. And if neither one is unfaithful, they should not fear a test. If someone takes part in serious promiscuity they should also get tested at least every month if not week. This is not a judgment however they would have an increase in the probability of contracting an STD.
Sexually Transmitted Diseases are no longer a shameful thing that should be kept hidden and untreated. The fact is that, there is a large amount infections, which occur on a regular basis. Doctors openly endorse testing in their offices and commercials can be seen all over television channels. Billboards help address the severity and the reality of the situation. The goal is to get through to people with the message that it happens, but there are things to prevent and treat it. It reduces judgment and embarrassment. Curable STDs are the result of awareness and scientific achievement motivated by the peoples wish to seek treatment.
