HERBS USED IN NIGER-DELTA REGION OF NIGERIA TO TREAT SEXUALLY TRANSMITTED DISEASES

Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) are one of the leading diseases in Nigeria, especially in Akwa Ibom and Rivers States in Niger Delta Region. Many people rely on Traditional Medical Practitioners (TMPs) for cure of STDs. 36 plants representing 26 families were reported by 105 TMPs to cure STDs such as gonorrhea, syphilis, urethritis and leucorrhoea.
