HIV – AIDS occupies more and higher space in the minds of people and unreasonably more bank balance in the hands of NGOs and Government alike. This is unfair. What about the other Sexually Transmitted Infections STI, which were deadly fruits of sin a generation ago and are still as much devastating? No one will like to have other STI, which go with HIV.
You will find ahead a brief sketch (easy to understand) about the other sexually transmitted diseases/infections called as STI, which are today not as glamorous as HIV.
Sexually transmitted diseases, STDs for short (same as STIs), are “infections transmitted from one person to another during intercourse or other intimate contacts.” AIDS is the over hyped disease among the nasty gang, but AIDS is not the only one. There are others too. Have you heard of Genital herpes, Genital warts, Gonorrhea, Syphilis, Chlamydia and Hepatitis-B?

AIDS is caused by a virus now called the HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus). Three strains have been confirmed, HIV-I, HIV-II, HIV-III. Viruses basically are extremely small (20 – 300 nanometers) parasites, which multiply inside the cells of human beings who act as their hosts.

These are starters or teasers. They are also called as stubs, which is the manner of writing in wikipeda. The special feature of ASK THE SEX DOCTOR is that it is personalized depending upon your queries. I am not providing text book information. Overload of information causes mental indigestion and thought pollution. The resulting delirious confusion is difficult to rectify.
