What are the STI test options in Naples,FL?
Though STD rates in Southwest Florida are lower than in many other parts of the state, they are going up, and health officials are worried.
They cite many possible reasons for the increase, among them insufficient health education in schools. Rates are also going up among seniors, many of whom are newly single after having been in monogamous relationships for years, and unaccustomed to using protection.
