This project give a summary of the entire
research study which was designed to find out the way and the way forward in
the treatment and prevention of sexually transmitted disease in Egor Local
Government Area of Edo State. This study include respondents in secondary
schools, tertiary institutions, civil servants, traders, which were reviewed
were the mode of transmission, factors predisposing youths to STD’s, the
symptoms, treatment, diagnosis, prognosis, preventive measures of sexually

BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
Sexually transmitted disease (STD, venereal disease) are among the
most common infectious disease in the United States today. Sexually transmitted
diseases are sometimes referred to as sexually transmitted infectious, since
these conditions involve the transmission of an infectious organism between sex
partners. More than 20 different STDs have been identified, and about 10
million men and women are infected each year in the United States, according to
the CDC (2010).
Sexually transmitted disease has been known for hundred of years
and men and women of all ages and backgrounds, including children have been
affected. But as we enter a new millennium, old age problems of the infectious
diseases continue to plague us, very many have been eliminated, examples
syphilis and tuberculosis, which increase faster than the terrifying of human
population over crowding, environmental degradation, and poverty often, inflate
Many of these diseases may have arisen in the content of modern
social trends, perhaps the most frightened is the HIV and many disease unknown
before the last eight decades of the twentieth century. This currently
incurable virus has already infected more than 50% of the ordinary young adults
population imparts of the Sub-Sahara Africa and is rapidly spreading. However,
syphilis is potentially one of the most controllable disease (STDs) this unlike
tuberculosis which is transmitted mostly by sexual intercourse.
Even under these conditions, HIV is not nearly as transferable as
some other STD e.g. hepatitis or gonorrhea. It is the cofactors of other STDs
this largely explain the infectively and prevalence of HIV. The world bank
estimated that STDs often easily treated, but if untreated principally, it affect
the most economically productive section of the society young adult was the
most effectives of the medical intervention.
Anti-microbial treatment of some STDs is becoming problematic,
some stain of gonorrhea are now resistant to all anti-biotic generally
available in our countries.
STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEMS
This study attempts a critical examination of the effect,
prevention and treatment of sexually transmitted disease (STD) which causes and
disorders of the central nervous system, and also causes pelvic inflammatory
diseases, which may cause a tuboorarian abscess. The abscess, in turn may lead
to scarring of the reproductive organs, which can result in an ectopic
pregnancy (a pregnancy outside the uterus) infertility or even death for a
PURPOSE OF THE STUDY
The purpose of this study is to:
1.To consider the effect, means of prevention and
treatments of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) in Egor Local Government
Area of Edo State.
2.To assist partners or individuals in these
localities discuss their sexual and STD history before having sex and to
consider getting tested.
4.To help the general population to understand the
symptoms and how to diagnose the diseases.
5.To help individuals that are sexually active to
understand the symptoms and how they are spread.
SIGNIFICANCE OF THE STUDY
Sexually transmitted diseases is not what can be single handedly
tackled, it is hoped that when study is concluded suggestions will be offered
to rewards the preventive measures of these disease by viewing or looking at
some of the factors that propagate sexually transmitted disease. This study
will also be useful to researchers in the discovery of the possible treatment
of sexually transmitted disease.
For the purpose of this study research questions were formulated
and they are as follows:
1.Does faithfulness your partner cause sexually
transmitted disease (STD)?
2.Does abstinence from sex help you to prevent
sexually transmitted disease (STD)?
3.Does the use of anti-biotic help in the
treatment of sexually transmitted disease?
4.Does sex education and voluntary counselling of
the youths aid in the prevention of sexually transmitted disease
SCOPE OF THE STUDY
It is not an easy task to go round the nook and cranny of Egor
Local Government Area in searching for information due to the fact that
biological concept are being modernized as a result of arising discoveries by
researchers or scientists or biologist.
There is need to go on line search of recent information via the
Internet, which is expensive and time consuming. The investigator has resolved
to study the effect and how sexually transmitted disease can be prevented and
treated in Egor Local Government Area of Edo State. For the purpose of this
investigation, attention will be focused on youth, civil servants, students of
secondary and tertiary institutions.
