This project give a summary of the entire
research study which was designed to find out the way and the way forward in
the effect of sexually transmitted disease among youth 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 transmitted disease, others include control and
eradication. The questionnaire was used as the research instrument: A
total of 343 questionnaires were given to the respondents, analysis of data
from the review of the questionnaires showed that abstinence from sex and
faithfulness to one partners is the best prevention from STD, various

1.1 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 overcrowding, environmental degradation, and poverty often,
inflate these diseases.
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.
1.2 STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEMS
This study attempts a critical examination of the causes and
effect, 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 woman.
1.3 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.
To help the general population to understand the symptoms and how to diagnose
To help individuals that are sexually active to understand the symptoms and how
they are spread.
1.4 RESEARCH QUESTIONS
For the purpose of this study
research questions were formulated and they are as follows:
Does unfaithfulness your partner cause sexually transmitted disease (STD)?
Does abstinence from sex help you to prevent sexually transmitted disease
Does the use of anti-biotic help in the treatment of sexually transmitted
Does sex education and voluntary counselling of the youths aid in the
prevention of sexually transmitted disease (STD)?
1.5 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.
1.6 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 concepts are being modernized as a
result of arising discoveries by researchers or scientists or biologist.
There is the 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
