Hey all,

Last week the ABC posted a STIs Quiz on their website. Takes 5min and a few tricky ones in there!

@Nurse_Nettie I'm banking on you getting 10/10 first go :)

    7/10 - HPV vaccine only protects across 4 types?? Gonorrhoea may become antibiotic resistant?? :open_mouth:

    but at least you can't catch STI's off toilet seats!!

    @Nurse_Nettie 8/10, I was surprised with the Ebola answer and took a wild guess at the HPV one O.o
  • Nurse_NettieNurse_Nettie Posts: 319 Mod Squad
    Good effort @walk_on_walls! Whilst sexually transmitted Ebola is extremely rare, the HPV infection is very common. Did you know that there are over 120 different types of HPV? The good news is that only some of these types may cause symptoms in the genital area. The vaccine protects from 4 of the most common types- 2 that may progress to cervical cancer & 2 that may cause genital warts. The vaccine called Gardasil is available free to girls & boys aged 9 to 18 years. Hopefully in the future we wont have these health problems :)

    9/10! I'm glad, otherwise I would have had to go back to my textbooks and re-educate myself before my next exam!

    Who learned their stuff in sex-ed??
  • teatea Posts: 267 Mod Squad
    7/10! Dang I need to read up on this stuff more!

    @MsBlueStreak I actually don't think I learnt any of what was in the quiz in sex-ed tbh! Most of it I learnt from the internet, or from people when I left high school (which isn't great, living through high school thinking you can get an STI from a toilet seat hmm).

    7 out of 10. There were some curve balls in there.
