Sexually Transmitted Diseases/Infections Plainfield - Get the Facts

Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) and sexually transmitted infections (STIs) are very common. In fact, there are over 110 million cases in the U.S. with 20 million new infections each year. Prevalence estimates suggest that young people aged 15-24 years acquire half of all new STDs and that 1 in 4 sexually active adolescent females have an STD, such as chlamydia or human papillomavirus (HPV).

The Centers for Disease Control recommends STD testing all sexually active people, and treatment right away, if your test is positive. The infections associated with this epidemic are all preventable.

STD and STI Risks

If left undetected and untreated, STDs and STIs can increase your risk of acquiring another STD, and cause serious medical complications including painful sores, heart disease, cancer, birth defects and more.
