Chlamydia: hard to spell, easy to catch

It has come to my attention that STD rates are on the rise so I decided to investigate this matter and I was shocked by the statistics I came across. The trusty website Stop, Think, Be Safe! Has informed me that

"One in four people will have an STD at some point during his or her life."
Some are curable and some, unfortunately, are stuck with you for life.

Curable STDs include:

  • Gonorrhea
  • Syphilis
  • Chlamydia
Incurable STDs include "The Four Hs"
  • HIV
  • HPV
  • Herpes
  • Hepatitis B
In addition to STDs, unprotected sex can also lead to many other things including pregnancy. Moral of the story: Stop, Think, Be Safe!

  2. Hi,

    1 in 4 sexually active teenagers become infected with an STD every year, in the United States alone. Now, more than ever, we need to join together to fight this growing issue. As I read through your website, it is clear that you share the same passion for STD/STI awareness. We here, at Disease.com, understand the importance of STD/STI prevention and treatments. If you could, please list us as a resource or host our social book mark button, it would be much appreciated. We can not reach every teenager, but together we can try.
    If you need more information please mail me with the subject line as your URL.

    Thnak You,
