Wear condoms! 2016 was an all-time-high year for sexually transmitted diseases.  Did you know that more than 2 million cases of chlamydia, gonorrhea and syphilis were reported in the US in 2016.  Chlamydia was the biggest offender, with 1.6 million cases diagnosed.  Oftentimes there are spikes in infection in certain areas.  The best treatment is prevention.

Show yourself some love, have your partner wear a condom.
