STDs are common, especially among young people. According to CDC there are about 20 million new cases of STDs each year in the United States, and about half of these are in people between the ages of 15 and 24. Young people are at greater risk of getting an STD for several reasons: Young women’s bodies are biologically more susceptible to STDs. Some young people do not get the recommended STD tests.
Many young people are hesitant to talk openly and honestly with a doctor or nurse about their sex lives. Not having insurance or transportation can make it more difficult for young people to access STD testing. Some young people have more than one sex partner.
Rates of sexually transmitted diseases have doubled for people in their 50s, 60s and 70s in the past decade, but safe sex awareness among older adults and its promotion by doctors is still lagging.
Express Care Lab recognizes the importance of early detection and treatment of STDs to prevent complications and keep people from spreading the disease.
