Old Sexual Health Problem Making A Forceful Comeback



Old Sexual Health Problem Making a​ Forceful Comeback
For many years,​ most people have considered syphilis to​ be a​ rare,​ limited problem. First coming into notice during the​ heyday of​ the​ bohemians of​ the​ 19th century,​ it​ was known to​ manifest only in​ the​ rarest of​ circumstances. in​ fact,​ to​ the​ average person,​ syphilis was hardly enough of​ a​ concern to​ be considered a​ major sexual health problem. Even the​ diseases most famous victim,​ Al Capone,​ was better known for his criminal empire than for having the​ disease. Artists from the​ heyday of​ the​ bohemian movement,​ like Charles Baudelaire and Paul Gauguin,​ were suspected of​ having died from the​ illness,​ but there was never any confirmation of​ such. However,​ if​ reports from Europe are any sort of​ indication,​ then this might not be the​ case for very long.
The latest sexual health statistics show that the​ number of​ cases of​ people having syphilis are on​ the​ rise across Europe. What was once among the​ rarest diseases,​ sexuallytransmitted or​ otherwise,​ may become a​ more common public health concern,​ according to​ some members of​ the​ European Center for Disease Prevention and Control. in​ yet another break from the​ traditionallyheld tendencies of​ syphilis cases,​ the​ disease is​ starting to​ appear in​ more women and heterosexual men,​ as​ opposed to​ previous instances where the​ cases were largely confined to​ homosexual men,​ with only the​ occasional straight man found in​ the​ mix. the​ disease,​ with was once seen as​ the​ sexual health equivalent of​ the​ Black Plague,​ was largely removed from the​ public eye by the​ widespread use of​ penicillin.
There has been an unexpected return of​ cases of​ the​ illness in​ Europe,​ however,​ and not in​ the​ cities that one would expect. British cities seemed to​ experience a​ resurgence of​ the​ problem,​ with an almost tenfold increase in​ cases for both men and women in​ London alone. Other cities,​ such as​ Amsterdam,​ Berlin,​ and Paris also experienced similar events,​ though most had them on​ a​ smaller scale. There are also some experts that believe the​ trend is​ starting to​ make an appearance in​ the​ US,​ with the​ Center for Disease Control effectively scrapping the​ plan to​ eliminate the​ disease entirely due to​ the​ 9,​800 reported cases in​ 2018 alone. European doctors were even reported to​ have been so offguard about the​ problem that most didnt even realize they were looking at​ cases of​ syphilis.
Some believe that HIV and AIDS,​ as​ well as​ the​ treatments for the​ above,​ are partially to​ blame. the​ introduction of​ effective treatments that delay the​ inevitable effects of​ HIV may have resulted in​ the​ public becoming more lenient with regards to​ protection from sexually transmitted disease. For the​ time being,​ most of​ the​ cases seem concentrated on​ gay men who sought other gay men,​ with statistics showing that most of​ them were HIV positive. Whether or​ not this was related to​ the​ emergence of​ websites where HIVpositive men could seek other HIVpositive men for sex is​ still uncertain,​ though preliminary analysis of​ the​ pertinent data seems to​ suggest just that.
