Number Of Ugandans Especially Girls Getting HIV/AIDS Every Week Increasing – Uganda Aids Commission Warns

Published

on

The Uganda Aids Commission has said that according to recent statistics,  the number of Ugandans getting HIV/AIDS every week has increased to around 80%.

The director general of Uganda Aids Commission Dr. Nelson Musoba noted that girls occupy the biggest percentage and those infected.

He added that statistics also show that men don’t want to go for testing yet most of them do check-ups on their wives.

“When women test positive and they start medicine, the men also start taking medicine with them which is also still a problem,” Musoba wondered.

While launching a campaign with Reach a Hand Uganda aimed at making sure all the youths get tested, Musoba estimated that of the 40 million people in the country, 36% of this population are adolescents and about 43% only know their HIV status.

The communication officer of Reach a Hand Uganda Nyombi Sylvester said that statistics show that more than 2000 people died of HIV/AIDS in 2017 with the biggest number being the youth.

Nyombi added that young people only test once in two years and the ‘I KNOW KATI CONCERT’ will help reach out to all the youths.

The campaign is going to spread across various districts in Uganda starting on the 25th of August in Lira.

“Because we know what  the youths want, we have decided to bring them their loved artistes like Fille, Geosteady, Gravity Omutujja, Nina Rose among others. We will also bring the pharmacies close to them so that they get tested,” he added.

Nina Rose who represented the artistes said that it’s very important to tell their fans the truth because they trust them so much.

Bobiwine in Red and President Museveni in Yellow

Kyadondo East MP Hon. Kyagulanyi Robert Ssentamu alias Bobiwine has conveyed an emotional message to President Museveni after Police blocked his Boxing day Busabala concert, the Grapevine has learnt.

In a Message post shared by this website, Bobiwine expresses his frustration of blocking his concerts by police even when parliament passed a resolution that okayed his concert since the constitution grants them as legislators to also undertake their professions besides the parliamentary work. Bobiwine stated,” Here is my message to him. through these actions, you are revealing who you truly are a brutal, cold and cowardly despot. You think you are hurting me and my dependents by blocking my sources of income, but you should know that the world is watching. yes, I have done a show every 26th December for the last ten years, but if its one of many sacrifices that I have to make for believing in freedom and Justice so be it! I will assure that your intention to break my resolve through harassment and intimidation will certainly fail. I shall not kneel before you. I will not be cowed by your acts of terror. The forces of Evil may be so fearsome, but they will never win in the end. One day, God being our help, you will shall fall like all the other tyrants who came before you.”
Police earlier today in the day used teargas in its attempt to break up supporters and revelers to musician turned politician at his One Love Beach in Busabala. The beach was to host Bobi Wine’s annual Boxing day concert which has been happening there for the last 10-years and revelers had started trickling in as early as 10 am.

New Sex Research: Semen May Actually Cure Depression/Stress In Women

Published

on

To add onto the many health benefits which come along with having sex, scientist have discovered that semen can help cure women’s depression. However, the said semen has to come from sex.

Recently, psychologists have found that a woman’s happiness levels and sleep quality could be attributed to the quantity of semen going into her body during sex. But before you toss those problematic condoms into the dustbin, here’s what you should know:

The research
A study from the State University of New York interviewed 300 women about their sexual behaviour. These women were asked to fill out an anonymous questionnaire that addressed various aspects of their sexual behaviour, including how often they had sexual intercourse, when they last had sex, and whether or not they used condoms.

What did they find?
According to the research results, the researchers found a strong relationship with the usage of condoms and the female level of depression. Females who engaged in sexual intercourse without the use of condoms exhibited significantly lower depression level when compared to those who usually or always used condoms.
The researchers took other factors into consideration, like whether or not a woman was on birth control or any other type of contraceptive, or if she was in a relationship. Only the usage of condoms seemed to be the only thing that really had a direct relationship to the woman’s mood.

How exactly does semen help?
The results of the research shows that the vagina absorbs a number of components of semen that can be detected in the bloodstream within a few hours after an intercourse.
There are six main compounds of interest in the seminal plasma (it is the fluid portion of semen) namely, cortisol, estrogen, prostaglandins, oxytocin, melatonin, and serotonin. Estrogen, oxytocin, and prostaglandins are linked to reducing the levels of stress and depression. The chemical oxytocin is said to trigger feelings of affection, which helps to promote social bonding. Melatonin is a sleep-inducing hormone and serotonin is regarded by science as the best known antidepressant neurotransmitter.

How could the benefits possibly outweigh the risks that unprotected sex holds for many people?
One of the golden rules we have learned from our childhood is, if you are going to have casual sex, you should always, ALWAYS, use protection. This is the obvious flaw in the research. Even though the researchers say that unprotected sex can reduce female depression and increase the quality of sleep, having dozens of kids and getting sexually transmitted diseases probably aren’t good for a woman’s mood or sleep schedule. Regardless of the findings, this study does not advocate that people should abstain from using condoms.
Therefore researchers only suggest this methodology if you’re a woman in a monogamous relationship and taking birth control (or if you’re planning to get pregnant). If you are someone who fall into the above said category, skipping the condom could do wonders for your mood.
