One in Four Women in Teens Have S.T.D.’s, Study Finds

The first national study of common sexually transmitted diseases among teenage women has found that one in four are infected with at least one of the diseases, federal health officials reported on Tuesday.

Nearly half of African-American teenage women were infected with at least one of the diseases monitored in the study — human papillomavirus (H.P.V.), chlamydia, herpes simplex type 2 and trichomoniasis, a common parasite.

That figure compared with 20 percent of white teenage women.

The two most common sexually transmitted diseases (S.T.D.’s) among all the women tested were H.P.V. at 18 percent and chlamydia at 4 percent according to the analysis, which was part of the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey.

Among the infected women, 15 percent had more than one.


DIS-GUST-ING!

Guys, better start going after the older chicks.

EDIT: Just to clarify any racism issues:


Race itself is not a risk factor for STDs, Forhan said. However, factors such as limited access to health care, poverty, community prevalence of STDs, and misperceptions about individual risk are some of the reasons that STD rates are particularly high among African-Americans, she said.

I'm slow. So does that mean 1 in four of my friends are infected? '_' or 1 in 10 of them? Or what?

A few of them aren't virgins, but I think they've only slept with one person.

*Clean, btw ._. ..I hope..I'm pretty sure..*

It sounds like it depends on what race they are. I didn't read the full report, but the article claimed that the rate was 1 in 5 for white girls (13-17 was the age range I think) and 1 in 2 for black girls. I think this was out of a sample of 800 or something so that may not be enough to say anything about other "races" specifically. but overall, yea, 1 in 4

Is that 1 in 4 girls over all? Or just 1 in 4 whores? I'm sure if they're that bad for women they'll be thrice as worse for guys. :P

Those statistics are diabolical, this world is going to heck long before my God powers come back. =.=
