STD Rates on the Rise

STD Rates on the Rise

Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) remain a significant public health risk, especially for young people aged 15-24. There are an estimated 20 million new STD infections in the United States every year. 1 in 2 adults will have an STD by the age of 25. Correct and consistent use of protection/condoms in combination with regular testing is proven to be highly effective in reducing STD transmission. The only sure way to know if you have an STD is to get tested.
