We Do Not Take Our Health Seriously Enough

Many of us don’t take our health seriously and that is particularly the case with sexual health. In recent years there has been a massive increase in STI’s reported by STI clinics. GUM clinics as they are otherwise known are used for testing for all the STI’s known as well as counselling if and when it is needed. Over recent years it is becoming clear that sexual health is not top of people priorities.

STI clinics will give you all the information you need for your sexual health. You should to be totally sure get tested whenever you start a new relationship to ensure that you are both healthy. If more people did this as well as take the right precautions then there wouldn’t be the same problem there is today. Even a major television campaign has failed to help. Binge drinking hasn’t helped STI rates either.

It seems that people do not take sexual health seriously. A combination of a lack of knowledge, lack or responsibility and binge drinking has resulted in a huge increase in STI’s making the GUM clinics busier than ever before. Something serious needs to be done to begin to combat this problem. While many may find it embarrassing education always starts at home especially when it comes to sexual health.

STI With Under 25 Year Olds

When it comes to sexual health it seems the message is getting lost amongst the young. The under 25’s are by far the most likely to get an STI and even more worryingly they are more likely to re-infected within a year. It seems the message is not getting through and the young are putting their sexual health at risk with lack of knowledge.

Facts about sexual health and STI’s are worrying with over a million people a day globally picking up an STI. While the most serious cases are HIV the most common is Chlamydia which can actually result in infertility. With many cases showing no symptoms many do not even know they have got it. In Britain STI’s have risen every year for a decade with the worst results being among the under 25’s. Genito-urinary medicine clinics are seeing a huge increase with almost every STI on the increase.

The problem seems to be that the message and the facts about STI’s are not getting through to the young who need this information to make decisions about their sexual health. Without it they do not realise that the actions they are taking are risky and can have devastating results. The problem of rising STI’s will continue until the facts get through.
