Have you heard about preventing sexually transmitted infections (STIs)?

Prevention against STIs

Sometimes people think that the only way to prevent STIs is to abstain or use condoms, but that is very closed-minded thinking. We know that abstinence is not a desirable option for many of us, and while condoms are great, there are other ways to complement STI prevention that are not often mentioned.

The problem is that many women don't know all the options that exist because the quality of sex education varies greatly depending on where you live or what school you have attended. Some schools focus solely on abstinence, which is an ineffective strategy. Additionally, some women do not feel comfortable discussing their sex lives with medical professionals due to fear of judgment or rejection. These professionals may also not know all the options or feel uncomfortable talking about them. This can lead many women to not fully understand the risks they are exposed to.

Did you know that there are very effective vaccines against some sexually transmitted infections?

This is the vaccine against hepatitis B (HBV) and human papillomavirus (HPV). In addition, these vaccines are anti-cancer, since HPV is the cause of cervical cancer and HBV can cause liver cancer. How lucky we already have two vaccines! However, not all women have received this protection.

The hepatitis B vaccine is super important because this virus is transmitted sexually and can cause acute hepatitis that can be fatal. In addition, if you become infected during adolescence or adulthood, you have a 10-12% risk of developing a chronic infection that can cause liver damage and lead to cancer. It is not a joke! HBV is very contagious and can be transmitted even by sharing a toothbrush. Therefore, it is crucial to get vaccinated before being sexually active.

If you're not sure if you're vaccinated against hepatitis B, ask your doctor to do an antibody test. If it comes back negative, get vaccinated! The vaccine is very safe and effective. Take care of your health, friend!

On the other hand, we find the vaccine against the human papillomavirus, it turns out that this virus is the main cause of cervical cancer, in addition to other types of cancer in women.

There are three types of vaccines on the market: GARDASIL 9, GARDASIL 4 and CERVARIX. Each protects against different types of HPV and can prevent cancer, genital warts and other health problems.

Ideally, the vaccine should be administered between the ages of nine and twelve, before girls have been exposed to the virus. If vaccinated before the age of fifteen, only two doses are needed, but after that age three are needed.

The vaccine is very effective and safe. More than 200 million doses have already been administered worldwide and there is no evidence that it causes serious health problems. Plus, no matter your race, the vaccine protects all women equally.

Remember, the HPV vaccine can prevent years of painful tests and procedures in the future. Don't wait any longer and talk to your doctor about the vaccine. Let's take care of our health!

Are these vaccines safe?

wonder

Well, there is a lot of false information on the internet that has made many people doubt. But calm down! Here I tell you some things that can help you understand the topic better.

One of the most common concerns is that vaccines contain formaldehyde, a substance that can cause cancer in large quantities. But it turns out that the human body already produces formaldehyde in small quantities and, in fact, needs it for some important functions. The amount of formaldehyde in the vaccine is much less than what we already have in our body or what we find in foods like apples.

Another thing that is said is that some vaccines have mercury, which can be very dangerous. But the truth is that the type of mercury used in vaccines is different from what can cause harm. Additionally, neither the HBV nor the HPV vaccine has mercury.

There has also been talk of aluminum, which is used in some vaccines as an adjuvant to improve their effect. But studies have shown that the amounts of aluminum in vaccines are safe and that we even find it in many foods.

Another myth is that vaccines weaken the immune system. But in reality, what they do is stimulate it to produce antibodies that protect us from diseases. And compared to other common diseases, vaccines expose us to very few antigens.

Anyway, there are a lot of lies about vaccines out there, but with real and verified information we can be sure that they are safe and protect us from dangerous diseases.

Ladies, there is no doubt that STI vaccines are safe and essential for our health!
