Sexually Transmitted Diseases

Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) are a growing problem in younger adults and teenagers. The United States Center for Disease Control reports that more than fifteen million cases of STDs are reported every year. Approximately three million young adults between the ages of fifteen and twenty-four are infected with an STD every year.

Many of these sexually transmitted diseases can be treated, but those that are caused by viruses are incurable. Parents are urged to warn their children about the harmful effects of STDs and educate them about the different forms of protection available.
