sexualhealth-lgAfter having sex, pregnancy is not the only thing you have to be worried about. STDs (sexually transmitted diseases) and STIs (sexually transmitted infections) are common; and while some can be cured, others cannot. Many will affect you for the rest of your life.

Medical experts estimate that approximately 19 million new sexually-transmitted infections occur each year—almost half of them among young people ages 15 to 24.
