When you are sexually active your biggest concern might be getting pregnant-but an even bigger concern is the current trend of STD’s. There are now more than a dozen STD’s that you can be infected with, and an estimated 19 million new infections are diagnosed each year. Several of these infections are chronic, life-long infections, so it is important that you are aware of the risks involved when you are sexually active. Condoms and vaccinations cannot protect you from every STD, so take some time to evaluate the risks of being sexually active. We have provided the most up to date information on a number of STD’s, but would welcome the opportunity to talk with you about more STD’s and about the risks and how you can protect yourself.
