This pamphlet describes the two most common sexually transmitted infections – which often occur together – and warns that gay men are especially at risk. It counsels readers that these infections are not only damaging in themselves, but they also increase the risk of contracting the deadly HIV virus. It emphasizes that Chlamydia and Gonorrhea can be cured, but that lack of symptoms may prevent infected individuals from seeking treatment. The symptoms that do occur in about 25 percent of infected individuals are described, and sexually active readers are urged to seek regular medical tests to check for the presence of the diseases. Readers are told that abstaining from sex is the best guarantee against infection and that condom use is essential for those who are sexually active. Those wishing further information are referred to the “In the Know Zone” website and to the National STI Hotline.
