10 reasons not to have sex before marriage

In what is fast becoming a very sexual world, one might wonder if there still the need for abstinence.

Here are 10 reasons to wait till marriage:

1. Sex is a powerful force that can destroy if not used properly. Like atomic power, sex is the most powerful creative force given to man. When atomic power is used correctly it can create boundless energy; when it is used in the wrong way it destroys life. Sex is the same kind of powerful force. Sex is a gift from God to give us the greatest pleasure, to help in creating a deep companionship with one’s spouse and for procreation of the next generation. But if you play with this powerful force outside the bounds of marriage, it destroys you and those close to you.

2. Sexual activity for young people arrests their psychological, social and academic development. Studies show that when young people engage in premarital sex, their academic performance declines and their social relationships with family and friends deteriorate. This is because adolescents are too immature to deal with the explosive sex drive and it tends to dominate their life.

3. The majority of women cannot enjoy sex outside of the bonds of marriage. The development of a fulfilling sex life needs the security and peace of the marriage bond. Premarital sex usually takes place sneaking around in hidden places dealing with the fear of being caught, the fear of pregnancy and feelings of guilt. All these (worrisome) factors undermine pleasure in premarital sex, most especially for women.

4. Virginity is to be given to the most important person in your life, the person you committed yourself to stay with forever in marriage. Your virginity is the most precious thing you have to give to your spouse. Once you lose it, nothing in the world can bring it back. Don’t lose something so precious in a thoughtless way.

5. Those who engage in premarital sex run a high risk of contracting one of the many venereal diseases rampant today, as well as losing their fertility. Not just AIDS, but other common disfiguring diseases like herpes have no cure.

6. Some venereal diseases have no symptoms and many couples discover many years later that they became infertile because of these diseases. Infertility experts estimate that 80% of today’s infertility is due to venereal diseases contracted before they married.

7. The best and only method that guarantees 100% against AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases is to wait for marriage to have sex and maintain fidelity in your marriage.

8. Premarital sex breaks the 10 Commandments given by God. The 10 Commandments are given to man by God to make man happy. They are not outdated and they are not restrictive. If we follow these laws, we can create happy and prosperous lives. If we don’t follow them, we will pay a heavy price in divorce, disease, abortions, illegitimate children and loneliness. Modern men make a big mistake when they think that they can break these eternal laws and not suffer consequences.

9. Premarital sex runs the risk of conceiving illegitimate children. Numerous scientific studies show that the children of single mothers suffer psychologically and are less successful socially and academically than children from intact families. Above all, children need both their father and their mother. It is wrong to risk having children who will never have their father’s love, protection and care.

10. If you date and you don’t have sex, you can forget about that relationship when you stop dating. But if you have sex with those you date and then break up, the nature of sexual involvement creates strong, often unpleasant memories for your whole life. Every relationship you break up where you had intimate relations is like a mini-divorce. The psychological difficulties of these mini-divorces does damage to your character. Later, when you are married and go to bed with your beloved spouse, these unpleasant memories will accompany you.

True love waits. If a boy or girl truly loves you, they will want the best for you. They will not want you to suffer fear of disease, unwanted pregnancy and the psychological difficulties of premarital sex. They will want to experience love with you only in the very best place of all – the love nest of marriage.

Deadlier than AIDS: Scientists discover new STD that kills within days

There is a new sexually transmitted superbug that experts say may be more deadly that AIDS.

According to a CNBC report, an antibiotic-resistant strain of gonorrhea is more aggressive than the HIV virus, which means the potential to infect the public will be greater.

Like most STDs, gonorrhea is usually transmitted through unprotected sexual contact and if left untreated, can cause severe medical complications, such as infertility in women, debilitating pain, sterility in men and life threatening heart infections.

Alan Christianson, a doctor of naturopathic medicine, thinks this new strain has the power to rack up more fatalities than AIDS. To date, more than the 30 million people have already died worldwide from AIDS-related complications.

“Getting gonorrhea from this strain might put someone into septic shock and death in a matter of days,” said Christianson. “This is very dangerous.”

William Smith, executive director of the National Coalition of STD Directors, echoed that sentiment. “It’s an emergency situation. As time moves on, it’s getting more hazardous,” said Smith.

According to the Centers for Disease Control, though no cases of the superbug officially called H041 were found in the US, steps must be taken to deal with the potential risks.

Gonorrhea can go undetected in some affected by the disease, showing no outward symptoms in about half of women and in 5 percent of men, which adds another level of difficulty in getting ahead of it.

This strain of STD which is resistant to antibiotic, reportedly kills half of those exposed and infects one in 20 hospital patients—which raises the threat of an outbreak to emergency levels.

Then there is the high cost of combating sexually transmitted diseases in general. The CDC’s tally to treat 20 million cases annually is approximately $16 billion. Of that 20 million STD cases, a reported 800,000 between the ages of 15 to 24, are infected with gonorrhea.

Even more alarming, some doctors believe the STD war is too costly to win.

             MALARIA

  1. Malaria is a serious (sometimes fatal) disease that is spread by mosquitoes who have been infected by a parasite. The disease is spread when mosquitoes feed on humans.A mosquito named ”anopheles
  2. Found mostly in warmer climates, malaria breeds where there is an abundance of humidity and rain.
  3. Malaria exists in 109 countries around the world, making 3.3. billion people (half of the world population) susceptible to the disease.
  4. About 90 percent of malaria-related deaths occur south of the Sahara in Africa. The majority of these are children under the age of 5.
  5. In the U.S., 1,500 cases of malaria are found every year.
  6. Common side effects of malaria are high fever, chills, headache, and other flu-like symptoms. Severe illness and death can normally be avoided if the disease is properly treated.
  7. An infected person may start feeling symptoms anywhere from a week to a month after they are bitten. With some rarer forms of malaria, the parasite remains dormant and an infected person will not become ill for up to 4 years.
  8. In 2010, 216 million clinical cases of malaria were recorded worldwide. 655,000 cases were fatal; 86 percent of those were children.
  9. Pregnant women are extremely vulnerable to malaria. If the disease is contracted during pregnancy, it can be passed to the infant or result in low birth weight, which decreases the baby’s chance of survival.
  10. Though most cases exist in countries where malaria is readily transmitted, the disease can also be contracted by traveling to an endemic country. Travelers coming from areas without malaria often have no immunity and are very vulnerable to the illness. Prevention is possible if you visit your primary care physician.
  11. Malaria is not a contagious disease. It cannot be contracted through contact with an infected person, sexually or otherwise.

   PREVENTIONS

  • AVOID MOSQUITOES:Mosquitoes bite particularly at twilight and at night, so you should take most precautions during this time.

    Sleep in rooms that are properly screened with gauze over the windows and doors. There should be no holes in the gauze and no unscreened entry points to the room. Air-conditioned rooms are good, too.

    Spray the room with an insecticide before entering to kill any mosquitoes that have got inside during the day.

  • USE MOSQUITO REPELLENT CREAMS:

    Mosquito repellent containing diethyl toluamide (DEET) is recommended as the most effective form of bite-preventive treatment.

    It has an excellent safety profile in adults, children and pregnant women and has been used in over 8 billion doses in the last 50 years.There will always be people who dislike DEET, and for them there are other products – such as non-DEET Jungle Formual, Bayrepel or Mosiguard (made from eucalyptus oil).

     

  • INSECTISIDE TREATED NET:
    When sleeping outdoors or in an unscreened room, have an insecticide-treated mosquito net around your bed. This significantly reduces the risk of bites.

    The net should be small-meshed, with no holes, and tucked in under the bottom sheet.

    During the day, it should be rolled up, so mosquitoes and other insects can’t get inside while it’s not in use.

    Take your own net with you. You can’t always expect to find an impregnated net at your destination.

    Impregnation lasts from six months to one year, depending on how much the net is used and whether you pack it away in a plastic bag when you return from the tropics.

    Just remember not to wash the net in between re-impregnation with the insecticide!

  • PREVENTIVE MEDICINE:

    Taking medicines to prevent malaria is essential, if you’re visiting an area where malaria is prevalent.

    The problem can be choosing the most appropriate antimalarial for the country you’re visiting. You also need to take into account your individual circumstances.

    Because resistance to chloroquine and other drugs is spreading, preventive (prophylactic) medicines that were effective five years ago may no longer be so.

    The geographic spread of chloroquine resistance in the malarial parasite Plasmodium falciparum is increasing. It exists throughout sub-Saharan Africa, Southeast Asia, the Indian subcontinent and large portions of South America.

    Apart from chloroquine and paludrine, there are three main drugs on the market in the UK that are licensed for preventing malaria. The most appropriate one(s) will depend on the country you’re visiting and your individual circumstances.

STAY SAFE…..!!!!!!  Your views and comments will be highly acknowledge
