Illicit drug use among young adults with genital herpes.
Although an association exists between illicit drug use and sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) in known highrisk populations such as prostitutes, gay men, and intravenous drug users, little is known with respect to middle-class, heterosexual populations thought to be at less risk.
We examined findings related to illicit drug use among young adults with genital herpes from a larger study of young adults' adaptation to chronic disease.
In this cross-sectional retrospective study, 70 subjects age 18 to 35 years were interviewed and asked to fill out questionnaires.
The sample was predominantly white, heterosexual, employed, and college educated.
