Joseph Burrascano, Jr. MD: Ticks are "Nature’s Dirty Needle." In addition to #Lyme, ticks may be infected with #Babesia #Bartonella #Ehrlichia #Anaplasma #Chlamydia #Mycoplasma #WestNileVirus #Nematodes #candida and viruses. #ILADS2022
2/Burrascano: B. microti and B. duncani (also known as WA-1) are the predominant cause of Babesiosis in the United States #Babesiosis has been detected in all 50 states #ILADS2022
3/Burrascano: #Babesia odocoilei has been found in ticks across N America, but not human samples, perhaps due to defective primers. Immunoblot data shows significant % of Babesia species in human patients are not microti or duncani. Could be divergens and/or odocoilei? #ILADS2022

1) A common misconception in Asian Twitter & Reddit spaces is that AMs & WFs have lower rates of STDs than AFs, implying AMs are more incel than AFs. However stats from @CDCgov indicate otherwise. A long thread. #STDawareness #asian #asianmalewhitefemale #whitemaleasianfemale
2) The claim that AMs and WFs have lower rates of STDs than AFs come from this study by Hahm et al:…, which found that AAPI females report STDs four times more than AAPI males & about 50% more than WFs. #AAPI #STDawareness #STDfacts #Asiansgonewild
3) However, if you look at Hahm et al's method of measuring STD rates, it's just a question asking if a doctor or nurse told the participant they had certain STDs, including HPV, bacterial vaginosis and nongonococcal vaginitis.… #STDawareness #AAPI

Annie Luetkemeyer (@annieluet) reports doxycycline PEP reduces risk of STIs for gay/bi men & trans women on #PrEP (incidence 32% vs 11%) & #HIV+ (31% vs 12%) — even more so for those who used it consistently. @UCSF #AIDS2022
DoxyPEP led to reductions in #gonorrhea, #chlamydia & #syphilis. Analysis of antibiotic resistance & gut microbiome is underway. #AIDS2022

Sexual and reproductive health means ensuring that:
💞 sex is safe, consensual & pleasurable
👨‍👩‍👧‍👦 people can achieve the family that they want
🤰 pregnancies are intended
🤱 women receive the care they need in pregnancy, and during and after childbirth
@WHO_Europe @WHOEMRO @pahowho @WHOAFRO @WHOSEARO @WHOWPRO When women and girls 👧👵 are healthy, and can make their own choices about their health and their bodies, the whole of society gains.
@WHO_Europe @WHOEMRO @pahowho @WHOAFRO @WHOSEARO @WHOWPRO Sexual and reproductive health care is integral to universal health coverage. We will not achieve #HealthForAll unless we ensure health systems work for all – including women and girls.
