Its a disturbing reality: the decision about whether or not to become sexually active is now often made in high school or even earlier. Unfortunately, it often occurs without a clear understanding of the health threats involved.
This program takes a detailed look at sexually transmitted infections, commonly known as STIs, focusing on facts and myths, common symptoms, informed decision-making, counseling and support, medical treatment, and protection.
Topics also include the differences between STDs and STIs, important steps to take if an STI is contracted or suspected, reducing the likelihood of long-term health damage, and preventing passage of an infection on to someone else.
In English, with English-language subtitles. Viewing time: 21 minutes. 2009.
