What is the most likely age group to get an STD? The answer is teenagers. One of the best ways to educate a teen on STD is for the parent to talk about sex and some of the possible consequences associated with it.
One of the reasons that teens are the most likely age group to catch an STD is because they are not educated on the matter. They think you can only get an STD by having sexual intercourse. This of coarse is wrong. You can contract an STD by having oral or anal sex as well as skin to skin contact with an infected area or sore.
STD’s are 100 percent preventable to teenagers. This is achieved by abstinence. Parents, don’t be afraid to talk to your teen about sex and also mention the 100% fool proof way of staying STD free: ABSTINENCE!
