Tóm tắt

Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) have been a public health issue in many developing countries, especially in Vietnam. Unsafe sex is considered to be one of the main causes to increase infected person. Therefore, we conducted a study on 3005 men who presented to the Andrology and Sexual Medicine Units of Hanoi Medical University Hospital to analyze the correlation between sexual behaviors and sexually transmitted diseases in men. The result showed that the mean age at first sex (AFS) was 21 years old. The median number of stable sexual partners was 2, the overall rate of STDs was 9.95%, in particular, the proportion of STDs in single men was higher than the married group (11.8% and 7.5%, p < 0.001), men having first intercourse before 25 years old had the rate of STDs was higher compared with their counterpart (21.1% vs. 13.2%, p = 0.002). Subjects with multiple unstable sexual partners were 2.11 times more likely to be infected with STDs, and the risk of infecting STDs would rise 6% for each additional sex partner.
