Every year in the U.S. there are an estimated 19 million new STD infections and nearly half of all new STD cases occur in people ages 15 to 24. Anyone who is sexually active is at risk for contracting an STD. Condoms reduce the risk for contracting some STDs, but they do not provide full protection. Many people are misinformed and think that condoms eliminate the risk , and thus are unaware that they have an STD. The best way to avoid contracting an STD is to abstain from sexual activity until marriage, and then remain faithful to your partner when married.
Many of the people who are infected don’t experience any symptoms, so they may not know they have an STD. Life Choices offers women and men free, confidential testing and treatment for Chlamydia and Gonorrhea.
