Reality Check
We all know the importance of using contraception, particularly condoms if we?re not with a regular partner. However in the heat of the moment this concern is often forgotten. The Family Planning Association recently discovered that up to 86% of new couples don?t consistently use condoms. Here?s a reality check about Australia?s sexual health.
– 80,000 abortions are performed in Australia each year
– 30,000 incidences of Chlamydia were reported in Australia in 2003. Chlamydia is a STD with no symptoms but is the fastest spreading heterosexual STD.
– One in five women diagnosed with Chlamydia are rendered infertile. If the disease is further left undiagnosed it can cause major health problems
– Approximately one in ten heterosexual adults contain the HSV-2 antibodies (the Genital Herpes Virus)
