    Sexually transmitted infections among HIV-infected women in Thailand

    Sexually transmitted infections among HIV-infected women in Thailand
    2013-04-22

    Data on sexually transmitted infections (STI) prevalence among HIV-infected women in Thailand are limited.

    We studied, among HIV-infected women, prevalence of STI symptoms and signs; prevalence and correlates of having any STI; prevalence and correlates of Chlamydia trachomatis (CT) or Neisseria gonorrhoeae (GC) among women without CT and/or GC symptoms or signs; and number of women without CT and/or GC symptoms or signs needed to screen (NNS) to detect one woman with CT and/or GC overall, among pregnant women, and among women <=25 years.

    Methods: During October 2004--September 2006, HIV-infected women at 3 obstetrics and gynecology clinics were asked about sexual behaviors and STI symptoms, physically examined, and screened for chlamydia, gonorrhea, trichomoniasis, and syphilis.

    Multivariate logistic regression was used to identify correlates of infections. NNS was calculated using standard methods.

    Results: Among 1,124 women, 526 (47.0%) had STI symptoms or signs, 469 (41.7%) had CT and/or GC symptoms or signs, and 133 (11.8%) had an STI.

    Correlates of having an STI included pregnancy and having STI signs.

    Among 469 women and 655 women with vs.

    without CT and/or GC symptoms or signs, respectively, 43 (9.2%) vs. 31 (4.7%), 2 (0.4%) vs.

    9 (1.4%), and 45 (9.6%) vs. 38 (5.8%) had CT, GC, or "CT or GC", respectively; correlates included receiving care at university hospitals and having sex with a casual partner within 3 months.

    NNS for women overall and women <=25 years old were 18 (95% CI, 13-25) and 11 (95% CI, 6-23), respectively; and for pregnant and non-pregnant women, 8 (95% CI, 4-24) and 19 (95% CI, 14-27), respectively.

    Conclusions: STI prevalence among HIV-infected women, including CT and GC among those without symptoms or signs, was substantial. Screening for CT and GC, particularly for pregnant women, should be considered.

    ^

    Infection would have to be much more prevalent in Whores than a non whore one would think.

    Especially when there's heaps of Johns out there who will pay a whore more to shag them without a condom. Jeez, one would have to be insane to go there.

    Whatever EH, they can have em.
    Stroller is a Yerman faggot.
