Travel and sexually transmitted infections.
J Travel Med. 2006 Sep-Oct; 13(5):300-17.JT

Abstract

Increasing population mobility and increasing frequency and variety of sexually transmitted infections (STI) are closely linked around the globe. Although all mobile populations are at increased risk for acquiring STIs, international travelers are the focus of this review. Several aspects of travel such as opportunity, isolation, and the desire for unique experiences all enhance the likelihood of casual sexual experiences while abroad. The situational loss of inhibition of travel can be markedly enhanced by alcohol and drugs. Several of the most important elements of the complex interaction between travel and STIs are discussed.
