STD Testing and Sexual Health Education in Boca Raton, FL

For several years the Sunshine State has debated about changing the curriculum used in its sex education classes, but so far nothing has been done. The state and county still rely on emphasizing the importance of abstinence, and stress that it is the best and only way to prevent unplanned pregnancies and sexually transmitted diseases.

Not only is the method ineffective judging by the state’s teen pregnancy rate, which is the second highest in the nation, but STDs are also on the rise. These rising rates are what has prompted some lawmakers to suggest making changes, but so far the curriculum remains abstinence based.

Regular HIV testing in Boca Raton is the only way to stop the rates for this potentially deadly disease from climbing higher. It is also the only way to positively check for the virus. The same is also true regarding regular Herpes testing in Boca Raton, and the simple procedure could help prevent the virus from spreading through area high schools.

Sexually Transmitted Diseases and Demographics in Boca Raton, FL

In response to the rising STD rates the county has lowered the cost of testing making it more affordable for lower income residents to afford this potentially lifesaving procedure. While this is a positive first step towards lowering the area’s STD rates, there are still several other factors that are causing it to rise.

Another reason that STD rates are rising, especially among Hispanics is the large number of migrant workers that come to the area. Many of these temporary residents have never been tested for a sexually transmitted disease, and this increases the risk for everyone that lives in the city.

Better Sexual Health in Boca Raton, FL

Touring one of the city’s museums is more enjoyable when you know your STD status. STI clinics are affordable, and you have the choice of using insurance or not. Mobile testing and HIV clinics can’t give you the anonymity you want, since it is obvious why you are waiting in line.
