Please post
anything
that you find out about STD's.


How at risk are you for STD's? When you have sex/sleep with someone anyone you are sleeping with everyone they have had sex with in the last ten years.


[Condoms can help prevent some things, but they are not 100% more like 14% if used alone.]


DID YOU KNOW?



Did you know that you can get STD's from
ORAL
sex? There is no absolute safe sex when it comes to STD's.

STD's are spread through ANY
vaginal, oral, and/or anal

sex.




DID YOU KNOW.......?



Did you know that there are more than
25
SEXUALLY TRANSMITTED DISEASES IN THE U.S.A TODAY! And this is the sad part....MANY OF THOSE STD's have absolutely NO CURE. [<img:44166_1164145068.gif>] No I am not trying to scare you into not having sex...[if you want to, go to CARE NET PREGNANCY CENTER (if there is one near you)and/or look it up on a medical website or in a book..ask your doctor if you don't believe me.]I am just trying to spread the word so young people don't have to find out one day that they have an STD or have passed it on to their lover/loved one and feel like they've ruined their life or possibly someone else's! I am just saying think before you act...I know it's hard, but it's worth it to be careful and safe. Trust me when that day comes that you want to marry and have kids and you want to start a life...and then you realize that you can't because of the risk of passing that STD on to your kids (through natural birth) or to your spouse by having sex and/or
ORAL
sex...what are you going to do?

Incurable STD's
Genital Herpes
Small red bumps, blisters, or open sores on the penis, vagina, or areas close by. Also, vaginal discharge in women. Fever, headache, and muscle aches. Pain when urinating. Itching, burning, or swollen glands in genital area. Pain in legs, buttocks, or genital area. Symptoms may go away and then come back. Some people may have no symptoms. There is no cure. Treatment includes taking a medicine to lower severity of symptoms.
here is a picture but you may just want to go to the site for yourself http://medpics.findlaw.com/imagesenlarged/9478W.jpg

Hepatitis B
Mild fever. Headache and muscle aches, joint pain. Tiredness. Loss of appetite. Nausea and vomiting. Dark-colored urine and pale bowel movements. Stomach pain. Skin and whites of eyes turning yellow (jaundice). About 30% of people have no symptoms. Treatment inlcudes taking a medicine to help the liver fight damage from the virus. There are medications available to treat long-lasting (chronic) HBV-infection. These work for some people, but there is no cure for hepatitis B when you first get it.
Fortunately, routine immunization of all children with the Hepatitis B vaccine will hopefully eliminate future Hepatitis B infections

HIV Infection And Aids
May have no symptoms for 10 years or more. Extreme fatigue. Rapid weight loss. Frequent low-grade fevers and night sweats. Frequent yeast infections (in the mouth). Red, brown, or purplish blotches on or under the skin or inside the mouth, nose, or eyelids. Women can have vaginal yeast infections and other STDs, pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), and menstrual cycle changes. There is no cure. Treatment includes taking medicines to stop the virus from replicating, or making copies of itself.
Keep in mind that the CDC recommends that routine screening for HIV should begin for all teens at age 13 and then repeated each year if they are at high risk for getting an HIV infection.

Harmful (if not treated diseases)

Gonorrhea
Pain or burning when urinating. Yellowish and sometimes bloody discharge from the penis or vagina. But, many men have no symptoms. Can be completely cured, but can be caught again, especially if both sex partners aren't treated.

Chlamydia
Most people have no symptoms. Abnormal discharge from the penis or vagina, pain in the testicles, and burning with urinating. Long-term irritation may cause lower abdominal pain, inflammation of the eyes and skin lesions. In women, it can cause inflammation of the pelvic organs pelvic inflammatory disease (PID). Chlamydia an be completely cured, but can be caught again, especially if both sex partners aren't treated.



[If you have any of these symptoms go to the doctor or hospitail asap for a check up because its better to know than not to know and find out later, be open with your partner if you do have any of these but other than that have fun and kept the love going around.(Not the DISEASES!)]




How @ Risk Are You?



([F.Y.I.]-> This is assuming that each partner you have slept with or done anything with (including Oral and Anal!) has had the same amount of partners as you!)



How many partners have you had? Ask yourself that question before you scroll down........Okay, ready?...SCROLL!

If you have had 1 partner (and they've had only as many as you) the number of people you are exposed to is 1...unless they've had like 3 partners then you've been exposed to 7...YES 7 people!

ok here's the whole chart that I have, remember it is only show how many people if your partner has had the same amount of partners that you have had!

Number of Sexual partners..........................Number of people exposed to.

1..........................1


2..........................3


3..........................7


4..........................15


5..........................31


6..........................63


7..........................127


8..........................255


9..........................511


10..........................1023


11..........................2047


12..........................4095



Think about it do you want to have sex with that many people? Teens (I am one, too..if you don't believe me then go to my page[Faery Rule]) have a tendency to think "That will never happen to me!" when in reality it could happen to anyone!
You
are at risk for an STD, THINK IF JUST SITTING ON A TOLET THAT SOMEONE WITH HIV->AIDS HAS
BLED
ON AND GET IT (if you have an open wound down in that general area)...WHAT ELSE COULD YOU GET LIKE THAT? There are lots of different ways to get STD's, Drinking from the same cup;(My family and I can't share drinks with a family member b/c they have one of the hep viruses. The doc said we couldn't just in case.)Just go surf the web for your own info there are lots of different sites for your own viewing.



HEY HEY! here's for the people that support this wiki should go! I visited STD Facts at wiki!r>

2007-09-01 [Phoxx]: I just said it's a good wiki. I never said anything about grammar. I admire that you've given time to warn you peers here on ET while they're just being dumb and waste their time on bullshit I don't even want to know about.
Just remain realistic. Put it back up if you can.

2007-09-03 [Jasper Cullen]: phoxx faery angys my wife and i thank you for givein her support halloween robot girl its a sad day when people feel they have to put some one down for not crossing there T's or doting ther I's why dont you go back to where ever you came from and try to learn some decensy and common courtisy its people like you that ruin elftown oh yes one more thing

Y0u b33n 0wn3d n00blet eft r0Xz3r y0u S0xz3r

2007-09-05 [Faery Rule]: well phoxx you decided to criticize me on a really bad day and i am sorry but i don't have the information anymore and well you should learn to support before u critiize.  so why dont you take ur TEACHER/ENGLISH MAJOR self off and make ur own damn wiki for std facts? i give up on all of your 'type' the type that has no life and comes to any and prolly all wiki's and decides that they can grade it. so go f**k urself

2007-09-08 [Phoxx]: I don't major english, I major Medicine. I was just saying you should keep it realistic or otherwise ppl won't take you seriously. I'll be the last person to talk about grammar mistakes, my english is far from perfect.
I was and still am supportive. You should learn the difference between constructive criticism and the kind where ppl just want to bitch at you.
"go f**ck yourself" is the best advice you could give in this wiki. That way we'll definately stay clear of STD's ;)

2007-09-08 [Faery Rule]: shut up all i was saying is that you could've not gotten onto me about the grammar its the internet ......who cares?

2007-09-18 [Sweetheart, you're a fucking trainwreck.]: Wow, "go the fuck away" really informs us about hat can happen.

2008-04-23 [SilverFire]: [Glassphyxie.]: Elftown is a sight for fans of fantasy and sci-fi, that doesn't mean that the only thing you're allowed to talk about. If someone wants to make a wiki about STDs, they're perfectly welcome to.

[Faery Rule] you seem to be being awfully rude to the wrong person - [Phoxx] didn't make the criticisms you're claiming they did. They were intelligent and polite. If you can't handle intelligent and polite people commenting on your wiki, then perhaps wikis aren't the thing for you - alternately, you can disable the comments, if they upset you.


[Jasper Cullen] you're telling [Phoxx] to learn decency and common courtesy whilst being far ruder to them than they've been.

2008-04-23 [Faery Rule]: [Glassphyxie.]: Huh...you say that people who care about grammar on the internet have no life? Ya know, I don't think anyone could possibly take your "informative" bad grammar seriously. If you care so much about the community, you could start using spell check and stop promoting bad grammar and horrid spelling. Also, Elftown is an art site. [I fail to see what STDs have to do with art.]



No std's have nothing to do with art, but wat does a wiki about someones favorite wikis have to do with art or someones wiki for a rant for say? or how aout bondage wikis or wikis having to do with other people's fans? Yes i agree STD's has nothing to do with art but neither does ppl against rape or ppl against child abuse!!! but the wiki's are here for a reason and if you don't like it then don't worry about them other ppl need to know about these things. [And if someone doesnt want info that could help them just beause there a typo or bad grammar then that's their problem not mine]

2008-04-29 [Jasper Cullen]: actually i was thanking phoxx

2008-04-29 [Glassphyxie.]: [SilverFire], do you realize how long ago that was? Seriously. Take a look at the date. 2007-06-18.
Nearly a year ago. All of you, just cut it out. Grow up and move on.

2008-04-29 [SilverFire]: You've obviously not grown up in that time, you're still being just as rude and immature now. Move on yourself before telling others to do that. The rudeness isn't needed, just drop it.

2008-04-29 [Glassphyxie.]: I'm not being rude though. :)
I'm just stating that it happened a long time ago.

2008-04-29 [SilverFire]: Your manner was still fairly aggressive. Lots of imperatives, for instance. You can point out that it happened a while ago without having to order people to grow up :) But hey, if you didn't mean to be aggressive, that's slightly different. But you'll need to bear in mind that you might be coming across as being rude even when you don't intend to. God knows I had that problem for years.

2008-04-29 [Glassphyxie.]: I tend to be like that, I apologize. I just thought it was slightly immature to bring old things up. But, hey. Whatever. It's fine. :3

2008-04-29 [SilverFire]: I didn't notice the date. It wasn't immaturity but negligence. :P Faery Rules had just asked me to add the page to The Wiki's Wiki Page, so I assumed that the page was still active, or new. 

2008-04-30 [Faery Rule]: i want it to still be active but every wiki i start always gets the same people to come and crit my grammar they have left now hopefully putting this wiki on the wiki's wikis page will help it grow

2008-04-30 [SilverFire]: You can ban people from your wiki pages, y'know. And if they don't leave you alone, you can then report them and the guards will take care of it.

2008-05-02 [Faery Rule]: how do u ban someone from the wiki page?

2008-05-02 [SilverFire]: You as the owner can tell them that you don't want them here anymore. If they carry on commenting, you can report them for wiki harassment.

2008-05-03 [Faery Rule]: oh wow cool i did not think of that thanx for tha info silver

2010-06-06 [all american antichrist]: your all wrong, ALL art is fluid, we can only see the art as we ourselves understand it through the lens of our own mind's eye, there for we could never say something isn't art, or how could we truly know, as we can only see through our own mind. Oh, and I did notice how old these comments were, i was just bored enough to correct them.
