The news of a young woman’s discovery of a sexually transmitted disease (STDs) has brought a great deal of joy to the internet.
But for those who have not yet been exposed to it, the STD is known as tundraspecific herpes, or TSH.
Tundrapecific is the plural form of tundral, a word that means different things to different people.
There are more than a million TSH strains in existence, according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The number of TSH isolates in the US is believed to be much higher than it was in the early 2000s, according a study from the University of California, San Francisco.
That was thanks in part to the widespread spread of HPV vaccines in the mid-1990s.
“In the late 1990s, it was really easy for people to get HPV vaccines.
We had them for people over a decade ago, and the vaccines are much easier to get today,” said Dr. Jody Eakin, an associate professor of medicine at UCSF.
However, there are some strains that are very resistant to the vaccines.
For those who are in the process of getting vaccinated, it can be hard to know exactly what strain is causing the infection.
“The problem is that a lot of strains have very high rates of resistance to the HPV vaccine, and if you are infected with a very high number of strains you can get a lot more infection and a lot worse outcomes than if you just had one strain,” Dr. Eakin said.
That means it can take a long time for someone to become infected, if they have not had the vaccine or if they are already infected.
In some cases, it is not even clear whether the virus is transmitted through a person or an animal.
“I have seen a lot in terms of cases where the person who has had the infection is in a community and they’ve been exposed, and they have gotten the virus,” Dr Eakin added.
“And if they haven’t been exposed yet, they can get infected.”
There are different ways to become HIV-positive, and most people who become infected will not need treatment.
If you are HIV-negative, your immune system has a better chance of treating you.
“But there is an opportunity to prevent transmission through a lot less time in the community, and in some cases that is a lot better,” Dr Kavanagh said.
There is also the risk of transmitting the virus to others.
“We’re seeing a lot cases of transmission in the United States of having contact with people who are infected, and that is not very good,” Dr Jody said.
“If you have been in the situation where you’ve had someone who is infected, they’re very likely to be infected again.”
Dr Kavanah explained that the virus could spread to another person’s penis or to their breasts if they’ve also had the virus.
“That can happen if you’re sharing the same bed, you’ve shared the same bathroom, or you’ve seen them together in the same room, and it can spread,” she said.
Even if you know you’re infected, you can still be infected, even if you have not gotten vaccinated.
“It’s a really important thing to know because you could get infected, but it’s a lot easier to catch than if it was your boyfriend who has HIV, because you don’t know what you’re up against, and your immune systems will recognize it,” Dr Sussman said.
The CDC says that for every 100,000 people who have been infected, there will be one person who is likely to become sexually active again.
That is why there is no vaccine or treatment for TSH, but a combination of the two can help prevent transmission of HIV-1 and other STDs.
Dr Eakin agrees, saying the combination of two vaccines can help a lot.
“When we look at the data from the last five years, we have seen that we’ve had some pretty robust reductions in the number of infections in the USA,” he said.
“So we’re starting to see some of the population who are at risk of becoming infected being vaccinated, and we’re seeing the benefits of the vaccine.”
Dr. Kavanahan says that if you think you may have TSH or HPV, you should talk to your healthcare provider.
“For the most part, it’s really not a big deal,” Dr Tannen said.
