STDs and Sex While Traveling
07-18-11 04:54

It is such an exciting thought: fly to an exotic country, spend a week or two under the gentle sun, and who knows, may be meet with a seductive local. But it's not so exciting when you realise you've got an unwelcome "present"

from your holiday affair.
Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs) and Infections (STIs) are the gloomy face of such affairs. From irritating though curable pubic louse to the more serious HIV and infertility-producing chlamydia, it's significant to acknowledge the danger and take all the necessary precautionary measures.


Doctors say travellers have more chances to get STD's than others because they are more likely to have accidental sexual partners, and in addition they are more relaxed about everything. Safe sex is not an exception. STD statistics show that HIV prevails in Africa, Thailand and the West Indies. The fact is that about 90 per cent of sex workers in Thailand have the HIV virus, and at the same time Thailand is one of the most popular tourist spot.


Gonorrhea, one of the oldest known and a fairly common STD, is transmitted by sexual contact. And doctors say about a particular type of drug-resistant gonorrhoea being imported from travellers to the Philippines and Thailand. So, if you want to protect yourself, use a condom during any sexual activity. Remember that oil-based lubricants can weaken latex, causing condoms to break.


Buy these products in your country before travel on vacation, as product standards may vary from country to country. It is also advisable to get vaccinated against Hepatitis B virus before you go to countries with high rates of hepatitis.


Some STDs such as herpes can be caught from contact with an open wound, so be a little scrupulous and just look for sores or open wounds in the genital area of your sexual partner. It sounds weird, but who cares if it helps you avoid possible health problems.


Those planning on having anal sex need to be especially careful of hepatitis A. Actually, it can be passed on by different kinds of sexual activity, but anal and anal-oral sex is a high risk factor. So the message is SAFE SEX every time when it comes to anal sex.


STDs like yeast infection are more common in tropical areas. So if you have already had it before and know the symptoms you can take a pack of the thrush medication in case it appears.

Go to your doctor immediately if you suspect you've caught something. Some


STD symptoms don't show up for months and even years. Gonorrhea, Genital Human Papillomavirus, Herpes (HSV-2), Hepatitis B, HPV, HIV - AIDS and chlamydia are in the list. Although chlamydia is normally easily treated with a course of antibiotics, it is highly dangerous to women because its symptoms often unnoticeable and this can result in infertility.


So while travelling follow the simple yet effective rule : No condoms, No sex.
