Valuable New Resources for Treating Sexually Transmitted Disease (STD)
Date:5/20/2009

Online health publisher, Healthcommunities.com, Inc., announces recent additions to urologychannel.com, its urologic health community. The physician-developed new resources, which are in the extensive STD information section, will help people with STDs work with their doctors to develop treatment plans and prevent STD complications.

Northhampton, MA (Vocus) May 20, 2009 -- Urologychannel.com, a physician-developed and -monitored website that provides comprehensive information about urologic conditions, announces recent enhancements to its sexually transmitted disease (STD) and sexually transmitted infection (STI) sections. Common STDs include chlamydia, genital herpes, gonorrhea, syphilis, and genital warts (HPV).

These urologychannel enhancements follow a recent announcement made by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) stating that rates of certain STDs, including chlamydia and syphilis, appear to be rising in the United States. Sexually transmitted diseases are most common in sexually active young adults and people with multiple sex partners. According to Stanley J. Swierzewski III, M.D., a practicing urologist and surgeon and the CEO and Founder of Healthcommunities.com, “Although sexually transmitted diseases can have devastating health consequences, especially if left untreated, many people find it difficult to discuss sexually transmitted infections with their doctors. The comprehensive STD information on urologychannel combined with the free Questions to Ask Your Doctor about STDs handout can help people ask the right questions to become informed and get STD testing. The additions will help people become involved partners in their own health care.”

“While some STIs cause relatively minor symptoms, many can result in serious complications,” states Dr. Swierzewski. More than 13 million people are infected with a sexually transmitted disease each year in the United States, and as many as 65 million people have an incurable infection. Sexually transmitted diseases can be painful, debilitating, and even life threatening. Common STD complications include infertility in both men and women; pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), cervical cancer, and pregnancy problems in women; and inflammation of the prostate (prostatitis) and the urethra (urethritis) in men. People who have a sexually transmitted infection are at higher risk for contracting HIV/AIDS. Dr. Swierzewski continues, “STD testing, treatment, and STD prevention are important components of good medical care, for anyone who is sexually active. Urologychannel’s Questions to Ask Your Doctor about STDs is an easy-to-use tool designed to help people get the important information they need from their doctors.”
    
Since launching in 1998, urologychannel has provided trustworthy online patient education information that has helped millions of people deal with urologic issues. With the recent addition of Questions to Ask Your Doctor about Genital Warts, Questions to Ask Your Doctor about Chlamydia, Questions to Ask Your Doctor about Gonorrhea, and other patient information sections, urologychannel has taken another important step towards improving doctor-patient relationships.

Urologychannel.com is one of 31 patient education websites published by Healthcommunities.com, Inc., a privately-held company founded in 1998. Healthcommunities.com, which serves health care consumers searching for reliable information on the Internet, is a Physician Developed and Monitored™ collection of online communities that provides information and resources to consumers and patient education website services to health care providers.
