UTI infections – sexually transmitted infections
In recent years, a rapid increase in the incidence of sexually transmitted diseases has been seen in Greece due to the frequent sexual contacts of young men and women that now start early. Another implicating factor is the “habit” of systematically not using a condom, resulting in a continuous dispersion of diseases.
So while STIs were more common in men in the past, today there is a rapid increase in women due to the pre-mentioned factors. Thus, the vicious cycle of infection and spread widens constantly.
This type of disease effect is not only physical but also psychological, because they create a huge load, which may sometimes be unbearable for a young person.
The only appropriate response to this phenomenon is responsible and unprejudiced information since the only way to sensitize young people is to make them understand that the best cure is prevention.
