Four hundred twenty eight female sex workers aged between 15 and 49 years were selected by cluster sampling method from three areas in Gondar town. Data collection was made using a pre-tested questionnaire which consisted socio demography characteristics of the respondents, current as well as the past one year experience of 3 sexual transmitted disease symptoms. Of 428 Female Commercial Sex Workers interviewed, 123 (28.7%, n=428) subjects had history of at least one STD symptom during the 12-month prior to the interview. More than half 53(56.4%) and 45(60.8%) of the study subjects were sought treatment from self care for abnormal vaginal discharge and dysuria symptoms respectively.
