STD rates increase.
scary and real. Please be aware of this statistic and be safe!!! one time can seriously ruin your life. i am happy that i am in a committed monogamous relationship but it's still so scary to know that 1 out of every 4-5 people have an STD. don't let it be you!! take care of yourself!
"HPV (590,000) and trichomoniasis (250,000) infections accounted for most of the infections, with chlamydia (180,000) a distant third.
The good news, Fielding said, is that HPV infections "are clearly vaccine-preventable, at least in part. . . . If every young woman had the HPV vaccine, this number would go down very substantially."
