    Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs)

         Sexually transmitted disease among the youths is a global concern to public health.  The rates of sexually transmitted infections (STIs) such as syphilis, simplex virus, chlamydia, and gonorrhoea have dramatically increased among the heterosexual youths, especially among women of childbearing age.  Research indicates that two-thirds of the estimated 12 million new incidences of STIs in the USA are women.  

Women are twice likely to acquire infections after a single exposure to pathogens causing Hepatitis B, Chlamydia infection, Chancroid, and gonorrhoea as compared to men.  These STIs are the leading causes of reproductive morbidity among the women of childbearing age (Mittal, Senn, & Carey, 2011).

This highlights that STIs are of particular distress among women due to their potential acute complications which can be life threatening especially during pregnancy.  These include complications such as fetal death secondary, pneumonia, sepsis and premature delivery.   My main inspiration for this topic is derived from the many cultural and religion expectations of women on mutual monogamy during and after their marriage.

This expectation contradicts most STI teachings resulting into the dramatic increase in STIs prevalence rates among this group. I feel obliged to conduct this research as women need to understand their STI risks, and learn the most effective preventive measures, chiefly because we live in a generation that lacks any assurance of mutual monogamy (Mittal, Senn, & Carey, 2011).

Without any interventions, a dramatic increase of the incidences is anticipated. This is has earned my interest as there is limited research on knowledge and perceived risk among women in the childbearing age. Due to the rising incidences of the STIs among the youths, evidence-based research indicates that behavioural interventions should aim at empowering women to increase their knowledge and perceptions of risk factors (Mittal, Senn, & Carey, 2011). Well, it is said that when a woman is educated (empowered) the whole nation is educated.
