Teen girls and STDs

Posted:

A new study finds half of all urban teenage girls may get one or more sexually transmitted infections within two years of becoming sexually active.

Indiana University researchers followed nearly 400 girls, age 14 to 17.

They found chlamydia and gonorrhea very common among the girls.

The findings point to the need to screen sexually active teenage girls sooner for infections.
