Protect yourself from Sexually Transmitted Diseases! REMEMBER: Protect yourself from herpes, a'ight! Watch out, you might contract herpes yourself, you just might!



STD's are a serious threat to humanity, especially HERPES!It's rather dangerous too because you might not even know that you have herpes, and just mistake it for something else, such as:- A rash from your jeans- Several mosquito bites(Scroll down fore more info.)Even if you see these symptoms, and have even the slightest bit of doubt in your mind, go see a doctor, as soon as possible.

Herpes are a deceiving threat to humanity, getting the disease will provide you insanity!

Want statistics? Here they are: - One in eight men suffer from HSV2 disease. Shocking! - One in 4 women suffer from HSV2 disease- One in 5 adolescents and adults suffer from genital herpes - More than 80% of adults have oral herpes - Many people with HSV2 disease don't even realise that they have it = Dangerous risk - 45.9% of genital herpes consists with African Americans, as opposed to 17.9 percent of it with white caucasians - A new case of herpes begins every 30 seconds - 20 - 25 percent of pregnant women have genital herpes.

How to prevent STD's from occuring.Stopping STD's is vital to society.There are many ways to reduce your risk. The best way to avoid herpes or any STI is to not have sex (to virtually assure prevention of repulsive sores). And since herpes is transmitted by skin-to-skin contact, you can contract herpes even if you don't have intercourse. This is one way herpes is a severe threat to teens. (Scroll down for more info.)These are ways to most likely PREVENT herpes, but at this current time, there is no cure to get rid of herpes for good.You can protect yourself, and I STRONGLY recommend by using a latex condom every time you have sex. Condoms don't provide complete protection against herpes, but they can help, thus resulting in a drastically decreased chance of contracting Herpes. Since herpes can be transmitted during oral sex, using a dental dam during oral sex can also help reduce your risk.

Zoster: A form of herpes caused by the same virus that causes Chickenpox. It is usually triggered during childhood, then developed during adulthood. It only comes once in a lifetime. It is unknown what causes this disease currently.

You think thatyou can just avoidherpes? Obviously,you have no ideawhat a foolyou are. However, ifyou follow the steps,unquestionably, you'll be safe


PHN: A form of herpes known as Postherpetic Neuralgia, affects the nerve fibres in your skin. It's most common complication is Shingles. A sort-of cure has been discovered, called the Famvir treatment, which shortens the time PHN lasts.

How does Herpes effect teeens?Now a days, peer pressure is a major factor in the actions of teenagers today, including losing virginity at a young age. The younger you are, the more vulnerable (Scroll down for more) you are to contract one of these diseases. This isin't completely due to social factors, but actually due to the fact that your immune systems have not fully matured, thus making you more susceptible.Teenagers are currectly the highest group of people infected with HSV-1 or HSV-2. This is because teenagers are bombarded with explicit sexual images and videos, or in otherwards, pornography, which influence them into the way of a sexually perverse culture.Another major issue with teengers contracting herpes is that they just think without actually thinking, saying to themselves "This isn't going to happen to me." Well, you don't know that, because you may just have as good a chance as everyone else to attact herpes.In conclusion, these teenagers require discipline, and maybe even let fear motivate them to show maximum caution in their sexual actions or in people they share physical contact with, including oral sex and things along the lines of this.
