National Men’s Health Week - June 14th to 20th

June 14-20th is National Men’s Health Week and June 20th is Father’s Day.

Lets celebrate both by sharing the gift of knowledge.  Here are some key facts about STD/STI’s that every man should know.

STD/STIs are certainly a critical piece of the sexual health puzzle but being sexually healthy is about much more.

Our most basic advice is:

  • Abstinence is good and can happen at different times in life
  • Talk to your parents, they were your age once
  • Talk to your partner (before you have sex)
  • Make sure you and your partner know how to use a condom correctly
  • Find a good healthcare provider and talk to them
  • Get help if you don’t think you’re in a healthy relationship
  • Get yourself tested and make sure your partner gets tested (before you have sex)
  • Take advantage of the vaccines that will help protect you
  • Learn what you need to know–and keep learning
  • Your sexual health is important–-you have a right and a responsibility to protect it!

Condyloma Acuminata - Is It Contagious?

Venereal warts are very contagious, most often spread by sexual intercourse. It is believed that two out of three individuals that have sexual contact with a partner with condyloma will get lesions within 3 months. If your sexual partner(s) is known to have venereal warts, protective measures need to be taken by the use of condoms until both you and your partner are free of warts
