STD Awareness

We care about your well-being.

How Common Are STD/STIs?
There are approximately 110 million cases of STD/STI’s in the US. About 19.7 million are new infections that are contracted every year. Some have no cure. Young people aged 15-25 account for half, or 50% of these new infections.*

How Do I Get Them?
STD/STI’s can be contracted through any type of sexual activity. Even condoms won’t necessarily protect you from all STD/STI’s. Some sexually transmitted diseases and infections, like herpes and HPV, can be passed on by contact with skin in areas not covered by a condom.

We are here to help. The caring staff at Alternatives Pregnancy Center can talk with you about STDs and help you get any testing or treatment you may need.
