AbstractBACKGROUND The management of sexually transmitted infections serves as a good example of how medical practitioners should offer continuous and 'whole person' care to patients and their contacts. OBJECTIVE: This article discusses 10 myths commonly held by patients with sexually transmitted infections consulting their general practitioners. DISCUSSION: We stress the importance of risk assessment, patient education, pre- and post-test counselling, assessment of associated diseases, contact tracing, and modification of health related behaviour in managing patients with sexually transmitted infections.
