HSV-2 seroincidence and the unintended pregnancy rate in young women were high. Providers who counsel women on contraceptive services and sexually transmitted infection prevention could play an expanded role in counselling women about HSV-2 prevention given the potential sequelae in pregnancy. Conclusion: HSV-2 seroincidence and the unintended pregnancy rate in young women were high. Providers who counsel women on contraceptive services and sexually transmitted infection prevention could play an expanded role in counselling women about HSV-2 prevention given the potential sequelae in pregnancy. Predictors of incident herpes simplex virus type 2 infections in young women at risk for unintended pregnancy in San Francisco. Unprotected sexual intercourse carries a high risk of sexually transmitted infections and unintended pregnancies.
In 2011, there were 45 unintended pregnancies for every 1,000 women aged 1544. Women without a high school degree had the highest unintended pregnancy rate among all educational levels (73 per 1,000 women aged 15 44), and rates were lower for women with more years of education. Calif, that provide family planning services and supplies to young women. Both HSV 2 IgG and IgM were significantly varied with age groups, with trends of increasing with older ages. The prevalence of maternal infection reported by the studies identified in literature regarding HSV 2 may be an underestimate of actual rates of infection as not all pregnant women in Iraq may have access to or choose to access formalized antenatal care. These infrastructural problems are essential contributors to the persistence of high maternal morbidity and mortality in developing countries and need to be overcome in order to accurately characterize the burden of maternal infections in these countries, including Iraq 12.
The risk factors associated with HSV 2 seropositivity in pregnant women in. For example, women with an unintended pregnancy could delay prenatal care that may affect the health of the baby. Large increases in unintended pregnancy rates were found among women with lower education, low income, and cohabiting women.

Unintended Pregnancy In The United States

Instead, the national incidence of HSV infection has been estimated using statistical modeling of data from different subjects in different time periods. Although studies with serial specimens avoid such statistical limitation, they are relatively rare and have been typically limited to special populations,4 7 including studies of adolescent women followed for the acquisition of sexually transmitted disease,8 11 studies of pregnant women,12,13 overseas seroincidence studies of cohorts of factory workers,14,15 as well as vaccine16 and clinical trials. Using these data, we analyzed these serologic data to estimate HSV-1 and HSV-2 seroincidence among healthy young, military adults, as well as to identify demographic characteristics associated with seroconversion. Specifically, as mentioned in Chapter 2, young women and female adolescents are more susceptible to STDs compared to their male counterparts because of the biological characteristics of their anatomy (Cates, 1990). In a prospective study of men at high risk for STDs, those who were not circumcised were 8 times as likely to become infected with HIV than circumcised men (Cameron et al. Among persons with herpes simplex virus type 2 infections, previous infection with type 1 virus was associated with a lower rate of asymptomatic viral shedding. For example, the Scandinavian countries have comparable levels of sexual activity, but their rates of many STDs and unintended pregnancy are much lower than in the United States (Piot and Islam, 1994; IOM, 1995).

Our study reveals a high rate of asymptomatic STDs among HIV-infected patients in primary care and supports the CDC recommendations to screen HIV-infected patients for STDs at all relevant anatomic sites.
