No Antibiotics for this one
1 April 2013 | by kjm1313See all my reviews

I was working at a large medical facility with a busy outpatient clinic in 1983. Herpes was then a shocking diagnosis for patients, in that it was one of the first STDs that couldn't be treated/cured by a shot or course of antibiotics. People had become very complacent about STDs - until the advent of herpes and then the HIV virus, it was simple to cure most STDs. It is still a very prevalent STD, with the CDC estimating that approximately 775,000 new cases are diagnosed every year (as of 2013). Much education is still needed so that people can be aware of the risks not only to themselves but to their partners. This movie was very informative and treated the subject with compassion and dignity, addressing the very real feelings and emotions of those affected. The acting was quite good and the characters convincing in their roles. I would definitely use this video as a teaching tool for young people.
