STD Testing and Sexual Health Education in Germantown, MD

Even though state law does require sex education local public school districts are allowed to choose their own curriculum. While it must include scientifically proven information on HIV and STDs, schools are allowed to decide how it is presented. This means that most public school systems use federally funded abstinence based material.

While students do learn about STDs and contraceptives are covered, teens are still taught that abstinence is the best and only way for them to prevent a sexually transmitted disease. While this is true regarding unplanned pregnancies, it does little to stop the further spread of STDs. The abstinence based classes can also leave students that are sexually active feeling ashamed and embarrassed, and this can make it difficult for them to admit that they might have a problem. If teens and young adults don’t feel like they have anyone to talk to about their sexual activity, they are less likely to get tested.

Regular Herpes testing in Germantown is important, especially if educators want to stop the spread of the virus through area high schools. The same is true for regular HIV testing in Germantown is also crucial, especially since the infection rate is rapidly rising.
