STD Testing and Sexual Health Education in Mesquite, TX

STD Testing Mesquite, TX

This quiet bedroom community uses the same sexual education program recommended by the state as the larger city of Dallas that focuses on abstinence, and not how to protect yourself from sexually transmitted diseases. While the deeply conservative residents of the community might believe that this is the best way to protect teenagers from the dangers of sex, the rising number of teen pregnancies suggests that this approach is not effective. Added to the growing problem is the lack of funding for sexual health centers, and the recent laws that have forced many clinics in the area to close. Without education that outlines the risks of having unprotected sex and the importance of regular testing, this small independent city will continue to have a high rate of STDs.

Some STDs can be transmitted without having intercourse, and some do not show any symptoms until it is too late. Herpes testing in Mesquite can not only detect and diagnose this embarrassing viral infection, it can also help to prevent cold sores from forming whenever you are stressed. HIV testing in Mesquite is particularly important given the area’s high number of reported cases, and residents living with AIDS.

Sexually Transmitted Diseases and Demographics in Mesquite, TX

The quiet community of Mesquite has a diverse population that does play a role in high STD rates. The main problem in the city is the lack of education.
