  1. 1. STI’s: the scourge of teenage-hood
  2. 2. Most important facts: • STI’s are very common among young people About 333 million new cases of curable sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) occur each year among young adults • Some can be cured, but not all of them • Not all STI’s have symptoms, and if they do, they might not show all the time Most of the time STI’s have no symptoms, so you can be affected without ever knowing it! • They are all preventable If you don’t have vaginal, oral, or anal sex, you won’t get an STI
  3. 3. Condoms! When used correctly, condoms can help prevent STI’s. You need to use a condom every time you have sexual intercourse, and never use a condom twice.
  4. 4. Making sexual decisions Every individual has to understand and make decisions based on your beliefs and values. Those decisions will be different based on what each person wants or desires. Recognize that the choices are yours, so don’t be pressured. But with every choice you make, comes responsibilities!
  5. 5. How to avoid STI’s There is an obvious way that will guarantee 100% of never getting an STI: Abstinence. However, if that isn’t an option there are still ways to help avoid them. 1. Get tested regularly, and persuade your partner to do the same. 2. Know your limits- think about how far you would like to go before your date. 3. Talk to your partner- honest communication is key
  6. 6. 4. Don’t drink or use drugs before you have sex. 5. Be ready and comfortable saying no. You need to know about yourself, you need to know about your partner, and you need to know about condoms and safe sex.
