YOUNG ADULTS AREN’T GETTING TESTED FOR SEXUALLY TRANSMITTED INFECTIONS (STIs) as often as they should, claims a study published in the Journal of Adolescent Health. Researchers found that less than 17 per cent of sexually active girls aged 15-25 and six per cent of their male counterparts are being tested. According to the study, almost 42 per cent of those avoiding testing are doing so because they don’t feel like they’re at risk for an STI. Many of the others are worried about the confidentiality of the tests, so they evade them.
