You hear a lot about AIDS, gonorrhea and syphilis, but you don't hear much about sexually transmitted diseases that have no known cause. Before 1983, nobody ever heard of AIDS. We know that many people were dying of a disease that destroyed their immune system, but doctors couldn't find a cause and nobody knew that it was transmitted by blood transfusions and sexual contact. Then researchers felt it had to by some kind of infectious agent that was transmitted through sexual contact, so the United States Government spent billions of dollars helping researchers throughout the world look for a cause of AIDS. It took more than 3 years of intense effort to find HIV, the virus that causes AIDS, and everyone knows that AIDS is a sexually transmitted disease that has no cure.

Today hundreds of millions of men and women have burning on urination, a feeling that they have to urinate all the time, terrible discomfort when the bladder is full, OR women have vaginal discharge/ and pain when anything touches the vagina, and these unfortunate people go from doctor to doctor, and culture to culture only to find that all tests are negative and doctors don't have the foggiest idea what's causing their bladder, prostate, or vaginal or uterine discomfort. Repeated cultures are negative for viruses, bacteria and fungi. Most doctors know that it is an infection, but they don't have any laboratory test to tell them the cause. So most doctors prescribe nothing and the patients never get better. Some people are cured by taking antibiotics for several months, while many are never cured and will keep their discomfort forever. Be very careful when you have sexual contact with a new partner. You could pick up a disease that has no cure.
