April is Sexually Transmitted Diseases Awareness Month

April is Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STD) Awareness Month, a time to raise awareness for people, both young and old, about the importance of getting tested.  STD like chlamydia, herpes and gonorrhea are very common. About half of the estimated 20 million STD cases that occur in the United States each year are among young people. Half of all sexually active young people in the United States will get an STD by the time they are 25—and most will not know it.   Persons with STD may not always have signs and symptoms.
