    I definitely agree! Students should be more aware of how important condoms and protection in general really is. It’s not worth possibly ruining your life with a viral infection.

    O’Malley, waiting till marriage not only protects you from getting STIs but it also helps you build a special connection with your partner, you get to know them to detail and get to know their real intentions. Also having sex with your partner at a young age makes you feel more attached to them which means that if anything goes wrong and you guys want to break up it would be very painful and hard decision to do so. According to hily article it says, ” Sexual intercourse: It is the most popular reason for a soul tie, and it is believed to have originated from Christianity”. Scientifically, hormones released during carnal intimacy play a big role in establishing emotional attachment between lovers.

    Yeah, it’s true that STIs are on the rise among teens. There are a few reasons for this. Firstly, lack of comprehensive sexual education in schools means that many teens may not have the necessary knowledge to protect themselves. Additionally, factors like peer pressure, risky behaviors, and inconsistent use of protection contribute to the increase in STI rates.

    Frankfother – I believe sti’s are increasing because most kids don’t use condoms, The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has reported that Latinx individuals in the U.S have much higher infection rates than whites for gonorrhea, chlamydia (about 1.6 times higher than the average white person), and syphilis (2.2 times higher).

    i agree because that stis are increasing because more teens have been getting pregnant then ever now which is why more people should start using protection.

    Frankfother. I agree. STIs are increasing among teens because there seem to be more pregnancies. For example, more pregnant teens in my classes since the pandemic must mean that students are having unprotected sex. So, it stands to reason that there are also more stis.

    As someone who is currently dating several people, (As I voted on the poll,) I take extra precaution to prevent receiving STI’s and STD’s. I believe in contraceptives like condoms which are very useful for preventing the spread of STI’s and STD’s and I strongly encourage people to use them, as well as to regularly be screened for these diseases by a doctor.
