The woman who was the first person to be tested for the sexually transmitted disease (STD) in the country says her discovery has sparked a debate over what women need to know about their bodies.
In a rare interview, Rana Bhatt, who heads the Center for Infectious Diseases at Delhi’s AIIMS, said the results of the test show the virus is present in every woman, regardless of their marital status.
“We were the first to find it.
It’s not just a test, we were the only one to test,” she said.
“We have been looking at our women for the last few days.
We have been asking them, ‘What are the symptoms of the virus?'”
The test was conducted in October.
It found that women who have sex with multiple partners are at high risk of the infection.
Bhatt said her research revealed that many women have multiple partners but only one partner was tested.
“They can have vaginal contractions and contractions without any vaginal symptoms.
I think the majority of women do not know what’s happening to them, or what’s going on,” Bhatt told NDTV.
“They don’t know what they are getting and it can happen in many ways.”
Bhatt, a social scientist and one of India’s most famous women scientists, said she was not surprised by the results.
“I am not surprised at all.
There is a lot of talk in our society that men don’t want to know.
We should ask questions.
But I am surprised that this is the first time it has been tested.
People think women are dirty and dirty people, not knowing the disease,” she added.”
In the past, women have been told, ‘I am sterile, don’t touch me’,” Bhatt continued.
“This is not true.
There are so many things that you can do to reduce your risk of getting HIV.
And this is one of them.”
She said it was important for women to be aware of their sexual health and also to know how to protect themselves.
“People say, ‘Don’t be dirty, don’ t be dirty.
It doesn’t work that way.
But people are not listening,” she told NDtv.
“There is no one who can stop this virus.”
