Latinos are known to be passionate lovers, but with passion comes responsibility, or at least that’s what should be expected from you and your partner. The fact is that about half of sexually active people will get a sexually transmitted disease (STD) by the age of 25, which is staggering. This is why the American Sexual Health Association launched the Yes Means Test campaign in order to get the word out about the importance of getting tested for STD’s.
Have you asked your partner if they’ve been tested this year? If you haven’t, you probably should.
The American Sexual Health Association launched the Yes Means Test initiative to remind young people that if you say yes to sexual activity, you also have to say yes to getting tested for STD’s. This campaign is targeting 18 to 24-year-olds; since one in two people will get an STD by the time they turn 25. According to the CDC, the rates of chlamydia and gonorrhea are unprecedentedly high and Hispanics are twice as likely to get these STD’s.
