Sexually Transmitted Diseases

STD Trends and Prevention Strategies - A State Perspective August 8, 2007 Springfield, Illinois (Powerpoint file).
Current STD rates by county

If you are between the ages of 12 and 26 and you're sexually active it's important to get tested for chlamydia. 40 percent of women with untreated chlamydia infections develop Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID). One in five women with PID becomes infertile because of the damage PID does to the reproductive organs.

This is where you will find the facts, the support and the resources to answer your questions, find referrals, join HELP groups, and get access to in-depth information about sexually transmitted diseases.
