Congenital Syphilis Resurgence in the United States: A Symptom of Health Inequity/Health Disparity

We need to educate the population of the United States relative to sexual public health about responsible sexual habits/behavior. In the meantime, while at the ranch, we are recommending Pre-exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) for HIV prevention, and in the future PrEP for STI/STDs, doxycycline.

Irresponsible sexual habits have caused a resurgence in congenital syphilis, and chlamydia/gonorrhea infections. We have populations since the Suffragette movement, who believe that Woman’s liberty is about sexual liberty, and that lack of inhibition/freedom is the ability to have sex in a frivolous manner with anybody. We have to be very discriminatory in our sexual habits, and check STI/STD comprehensive panels prior to engaging in sexual activities. We have to teach ourselves impulse control, and reign in our neurotransmitters, namely, dopamine, endorphine and oxytocin. We have to understand that behavioral health issues such as anxiety, bipolard disorder, ADD/ADHD, as well as, substance use disorders can drive these sexual disease epidemics.

Thus, sometimes when you feel the urge, call a friend or 988, for impulse control. It can mean the difference between life and death. As my Grandmother would say, actions have consequences, can you live with them in perpetuity. There are healthy coping mechanism that give the same dopaminergic hit as sex, that also does not involve binge eating/food.

Please call 988, and your health insurance behavioral health/mental health hotline when you need to talk to someone. Behavioral health/mental health is extremely important, it’s like breathing oxygen, very fundmamental to living.
