Changes in sexually transmitted disease rates after HIV testing and posttest counseling, Miami, 1988 to 1989.
The effects of post-test counseling on acquisition of sexually transmitted diseases in patients at a large urban sexually transmitted disease clinic were studied.
Comparisons were made of the percentage of patients who had a positive gonorrhea culture (or any sexually transmitted disease) in the 6 months before and after human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) counseling and testing.
For 331 patients counseled about a positive HIV test, the percentage with gonorrhea was 6.3 before and 4.5 after posttest counseling (29% decrease).
