Going Viral Isn’t Always A Good Thing

Led by WISH Education Staff

(Or, Why You Care About Your Partner’s Partner)

Going Viral vs. Getting A Virus.

You’ve  “gone viral” in a good way when you’ve impacted a large number of users in a short period of time.  It is called viral because of the similarity in which actual viruses are spread. Through self-replicating viral processes, infections and disease multiply as they connect with the next “receptor”—from one to another to many, increasing their impact and “infecting” larger and larger numbers as they spread. Unless you do something to stop them, they just keep spreading.

We have a national epidemic of sexually transmitted infection and disease. There are 20 million new cases diagnosed every year. About half are diagnosed in people under age 25.  However, studies show that, with the exception of HIV, few people understand the reach of this epidemic and what’s at risk

The following topics will be covered in a safe, interactive environment by a medical professional:

  • Viral vs. Bacterial Infection. What’s the difference and why does it matter?
  • Which STIs are reportable and why?
  • Why some sexual activities are riskier than others.
  • Symptoms: Why what you don’t know can hurt you — and hurt others.
  • If I can’t get rid of my STI, what can I do?
  • What if they say they’ve been tested?

No one wants to infect the one they love.

There is a reason the CDC says, “The surest way to avoid STI’s is to refrain from sexual contact until in a long-term, mutually monogamous relationship with an uninfected partner.”

Get the Facts. Get tested. Get the Life you Really Want.
