Your Sexual Health: Get Tested!

According to a 2011 Centers for Disease Control and Prevention surveillance report, young people ages 15 to 24 represent nearly half of the 19 million new STDs each year.

It’s important to keep in mind that in some cases, mouth-to-mouth or skin-to-skin contact alone can lead to the spread of STDs. In a Health.com article titled Top 10 Myths About Safe Sex and Sexual Health,” (http://www.health.com/health/gallery/0,,20307293,00.html) Dr. Sophia Yen, MD, adolescent medicine specialist at Lucile Packard Children's Hospital in Palo Alto, Calif., points out that “kissing… can spread herpes (and deeper kissing can even spread oral gonorrhea and chlamydia), while skin rubbing together can pass infections such as genital warts, herpes, scabies and pubic lice.”

Most infections have no symptoms, and if left untreated, can cause severe health consequences. The only way to know is to be tested. Check out more tips from Health.com to determine which tests you should consider (http://www.health.com/health/condition-article/0,,20189308,00.html).
