Ministry of Health states that Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs) cause 10% of infertility among Sri Lankan women.

Director of National STD/AIDS control unit, Dr. Sisira Liyanage says that any unsafe sexual activity carries a risk to spread STIs.

STIs have caused defections in ovaries leading women be infertile.

Doctors claim that pregnant mothers should be very careful in sexual intercourse during pregnancy as it brings certain risks to the fetus.

Meanwhile, 23 pregnant mothers with HIV were identified last year. Necessary treatments were given to secure fetuses being infected by mothers’ HIV positive status.

175000 people have tested their HIV status in last year while 27 young people among 15-25 years have found to be HIV positive.

According to statistics of National STD/AIDS control unit, 225 people have identified to be HIV positive in 2015.
