Adolescents and the Risk of STDs

Sexually transmitted diseases do occur in adolescents and they can be problematic. You need to talk to your teens about sex, premarital sex, and what the issues are. Also, talk to them about the risks; the risks of sexually transmitted diseases and the fact that infections can cause a great deal of trouble, short-term and long-term. One of the things many teens don’t know is it can actually affect fertility. Chlamydia and gonorrhea can actually cause scarring in the tubes and can cause difficulty for women who want to have babies in the future.

We always appreciate your comments.
