Adhering to this ABC plan will prevent STDs

The "ABC faithful" individuals will be able to avoid STDs including HIV Aids and HPV, with a little help from vaccination, there is a chance we can most eradicate some STDs diseases for good.

At the 2011 Annual Clinical Meeting of the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists gyno physicians were updated in STDs. The fact remains that over 40 million Americans have an incurable STD known as HPV, and others have HIV.

It’s important to understand how to best protect ourselves. Dr. Jennifer Gunter of San Francisco pointed out that while your best way of protection against STDs is to use a condom. Only 40% of people use condoms when they first have a new sexual partner.

You can protect yourself, don't rely on others to always think of this; just you don’t leave home without them (condoms). Oddly some studies show that married people are more likely to use condoms than unmarried couples, although the couples with steady partners are less at risk for STDs than those who aren't in a stable relationship.

The protection mantra in third world countries including Uganda is the “ABC” strategy: A for abstinence, B for being faithful, and C for condom use.

Although abstinence will always beat condoms at protection, it reduces one’s chance of getting HIV by over 85% and HPV by 70% and HSV (Herpes) by 30%. And in a 3 year period of time about 60% of young women will contract HPV, and in a lifetime about 80% of the population will get HPV. So the better you are at your condoms the less likely you will be one of those statistics.

The CDC has changed it's language and now calls 'unprotected sex' by a new name: 'condomless sex.' Now you have to remember a few facts. You need to use a condom that fits, and too loose a condom will not only interfere with pleasure, but it will be more likely to break or slide right off and cannot be as protective. Spermicide with the condom does enhance it's effectiveness.

So now and then you need to gab to your gyno about condoms, no matter what type of contraception you are on.
