Love Hurts - Panorama Programme
How the STI epidemic is overwhelming Britain's sexual health service.
Ignore the warnings in this programme at your peril. Sexually transmitted diseases in Britain are rising fast and they can have a dramatic affect on your life. Sexually transmitted disease clinics are overwhelmed with new patients and there can be long waiting times meaning you get worse.
the big dangers are -
Chlamydia - danger of making you infertile and not able to have children.
HIV/Aids - Incurable
Syphylis - Cured if caught in time
Gonorrhoea - Curable but rotten symptoms if treatment delayed.
Genital Warts Condoms may not protect you as skin contact can spread the infection.
Above are some of the more common infections and problems but there
are plenty of others for the unwary. Check more out at

How Can You Avoid Problems?
Avoid having sex more than one partner and only do so with someone you trust to be faithful. Remember people happily settled with a partner have more sex than singles cruising the bars.
Remember gay relationships carry all the same risks and the same advice applies.
This is all very good and well but there are plenty of web sites with much more advice and information . Search on www.google.co.uk and you will certainly find out what you need to know. Then act on it. Lead your life. Don't be led.
