    Condoms, when used correctly, do a good job in preventing:

    • A.

      All STD's

    • B.

      Herpes, Syphilis and HPV (wart virus)

    • C.

      Gonorrhea, chlamydia, HIV. thricomonas

    Correct Answer
    C. Gonorrhea, chlamydia, HIV. thricomonas
    Explanation
    Correctly used condoms work well to prevent the transmission of STDs that are transmitted via semen or body fluids, which are gonorrhea, chlamydia, HIV, and trichomonas. Condoms still have a failure rate of 11% when used correctly, and in average usage, that failure rate is closer to 20% because of inconsistent use, breakage and putting on the condom after initiating sexual intimacy. Condoms cannot work to prevent the spread of STDs that are transmitted from direct contact in areas beyond where a condom covers, such as herpes, HPV, syphilis and pubic lice.

    Oral Sex:

    • A.

      Is completely safe; it cannot transmit any std's

    • B.

      Is a common means of transmitting herpes

    • C.

      Does not require condoms

    Correct Answer
    B. Is a common means of transmitting herpes
    Explanation
    Oral sex can transmit most STDs, including herpes, gonorrhea, chlamydia and syphilis. Condoms would reduce this transmission rate significantly. If there are open sores in the mouth, this would make it possible to also transmit HIV and hepatitis B and C. Trichomonas is not spread by oral sex.

    STDs:

    • A.

      Always cause pain or discharge

    • B.

      Are cured if symptoms disappear

    • C.

      Frequently have no symptoms

    Correct Answer
    C. Frequently have no symptoms
    Explanation
    Many STDs are spread without people ever knowing they had an infection, because they are silent. Chlamydia, for example, is silent 50% of the time in men, and up to 75% of the time in women, but can go on to cause scarring and infertility in a significant percentage of women. Similarly, gonorrhea is silent in 20-40% of women and 10% of men.

    STD's can:

    • A.

      All be cured with antibiotics, as long as they are diagnosed

    • B.

      Dissapear without antibiotics, which means you are cured

    • C.

      Cause infertility

    Correct Answer
    C. Cause infertility
    Explanation
    Bacterial STDs can be cured with antibiotics, but any damage done to the reproductive system (scarring) will not be undone by curing the disease. Many STDs are viral — herpes, HIV, HPV, hepatitis B and hepatitis C — and have no medicine that can eradicate them. Chlamydia and gonorrhea cause the vast majority of cases of pelvic inflammatory disease, or PID, which causes an estimated 100,000 women annually to become infertile in the United States.

    If your partner says he/she is a virgin he/she may:

    • A.

      Still have an STD

    • B.

      Cannot have an STD

    • C.

      Has not been sexually intimate in any way

    Correct Answer
    A. Still have an STD
    Explanation
    Ask her what she means! Many people consider themselves virgins as long as they have not had traditional intercourse (meaning penile penetration into the vagina) but they may have participated in oral or anal sex, or simply skin-to-skin intimacy, all of which can transmit STDs.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    The population that most primary care physicians treat for STD's is: 

    • A.

      Successful, well educated people who didn't realize they were at risk

    • B.

      Lower income, poorly educated people who have bad hygiene

    • C.

      Prostitute and drug abusers

    Correct Answer
    A. Successful, well educated people who didn't realize they were at risk
    Explanation
    STDs do have a higher prevalence in people who have sex with multiple partners, but the patients most family doctors and gynecologists see with STDs span across all demographics — regardless of their education, age, wealth or race.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Which STDs are most frequently spread by people using public toilet seats?

    • A.

      Herpes and gonorrhea

    • B.

      Chlamydia and trichamonas

    • C.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    C. None of the above
    Explanation
    With intact skin on the back of your legs (where your body is in direct contact with the toilet seat), it is virtually impossible to contract ANY STD from a dry toilet seat! (Simply wipe it dry with toilet paper if there is fluid on it.) Most STDs die when the secretions containing them dry up, and they also require entry into the body via mucus membranes (mouth, vagina or anus), so it would involve much more than sitting on a toilet to transmit these diseases.
