GYT is a national campaign partnership between Planned Parenthood, MTV, Kaiser Family Foundation and the Centers for Disease Control.
The CDC’s study three years ago revealed that 1 in 4 teenage girls have a Sexually Transmitted Disease
, many may not even be aware they have an infection. The fact is that more teenagers are becoming sexually active without accessing all of the information on how to protect themselves. Another concerning statistic from the study is that 1 in 2 African-American teenage girls have an STD.
Protecting yourself when you are sexually active isn’t just about preventing an unplanned pregnancy, it is about keeping yourself healthy. STDs like Gonorrhea
don’t always have symptoms. So, if you are sexually active, make it part of your annual health check-up to get tested for STDs.
April is the perfect time to start this habit of good prevention! Planned Parenthood Arizona will be offering discounted STD testing during the month - $10 off a Chlamydia/gonorrhea combo test and $20 off a full STD screening.
