MPWH Wants To Remind Women That Long-acting Contraception Is Risky For STIs

MPWH, the original Herpes Dating community for HSV singles around the world, dedicates to providing a safe and understanding online dating pool of individuals all intent on finding connections and love despite their HSV diagnosis, this week reaffirmed past studies that conclude women using long-acting contraception and birth control variants are less likely to use condoms, and therefore more susceptible to contracting a Sexually Transmitted Disease (STD).

Passionate about educating community members and working as an activist team for spreading education on HSV and other STDs today, MPWH wants to remind all women that just because they are using long-acting contraception doesn’t mean they still don’t need a layer of protection for thwarting STD development.

“We are a welcoming, warm-hearted community for herpes singles, providing them with the ability to chat with other herpes friends,” said Michelle Lee, the Co-founder  of MPWH App. “Though we prioritize creating a community specifically for our members living with HSV, we also do our part to ensure more individuals don’t accidentally contract herpes due to their lack of STD education and awareness.”

In an article published by, the author confirms that women, college-aged women especially, using long-acting reversible contraception, like IUDs or hormonal implants, may be less likely to get pregnant, but more vulnerable to sexually transmitted diseases when compared to peers not on contraception. Most notable, with sexually transmitted infections being at an all-time high in the U.S. in 2015, the author warns education is key to combating the epidemic.

“Help us spread the word on safe sexual practices today through an avenue of education and understanding support.” said Lee.
