Dear Reader^ If you have not had any form of sexual activity with another person the likelihood of your having venereal disease is quite small. It's possible to get syphilis by kissing a person who has the disease and the germ, or spirochete, is passed in a moist droplet. This is more apt to occur if the individual has a sore on the mouth. This is a relatively uncommon way though of transmitting the disease. Vaginal discharge is more often related to the possibility of gonorrhea. You will not have a vaginal discharge from gonorrhea, however, unless you've engaged in sexual activity. It is quite normal for young girls to have a fairly heavy discharge and not have any disease of any type. The increase blood flow to the pelvic region during these periods of development seems to increase the discharge. Actually a few years later the discharge is a much smaller amount and what remains is the normal fluid or lubricatuig discharge which actually serves as nature's cleanser for the female organs. Anything which increases the blood flow to the pelvic region is apt to increase a discharge. This can be with the normal period of sexual development as seen in young girls or it can occur as a result of prolonged standing in women who must work while standing on their feet and it can occur as a result ol any type of infection other than venereal disease. In short, while it's true that gonorrhea can cause a discharge, it is also true that a large number of young girls and women have a discharge who do not have V.D. at all. Few Symptoms A woman may haVe relatively no symptoms at all of venereal disease. The fact that a discharge can occur normally, also, makes it more diffficult for a woman to know if she has venereal disease. One of the most frequent problems caused by gonorrhea is that it may inflame the delicate tubes that are the passageways for the eggs (ova) to the uterus for pregnancy. When blocked tubes occur, the girl will be sterile. Incidentally, there are many other things besides gonorrhea that can cause blocked tubes also. As to what you should do, any girl who is worried about what her discharge is should seek medical advice, whether it's the school nurse or the family physician. This is imperative iim there is any possibility of e\-'fi posure, specifically having engaged in sexual activity and then a discharge is noticed. (Newspaper Enterprise Assn.)
