STD Testing and Sexual Health Education in North Las Vegas, NV

One of the most effective methods of slowing the spread of STDs is to educate students and residents about the dangers of engaging in unprotected sex, and to stress the importance of regular health checkups.

While the Las Vegas school system has always followed the federally sponsored abstinence only program, recent changes have been suggested. Even though the sexual education curriculum still only covers the basics of the reproductive system and stresses abstinence as the best method to preventing pregnancies and STDs, the simple fact that the district is discussing changes means that some of the warnings concerning the dangers of sexually transmitted diseases is being heard.

Some viral infections can be spread easily through casual contact, which is one of the reasons that Herpes is often prevalent in high schools.

Regular Herpes testing in Las Vegas can  prevent future embarrassing flare-ups from occurring. Sexual education classes can also ensure that students and parents know  some can only be detected during testing.

This is only one of the reasons why regular HIV testing in Las Vegas is important.

Sexually Transmitted Diseases and Demographics in North Las Vegas, NV

Not only do social and economic factors, but the high number of annual visitors is contributing to the problem.

Without proper education residents do not realize that they are potentially at risk for contracting a sexually transmitted disease, especially if they make a new friend at the casino.

Intravenous drug use is on the rise among certain demographical groups, and this is also thought to be responsible for the growing number of middle age men who are testing positive for primary and secondary Syphilis. Dating apps which make it easy to “hook up” for the night and the exciting Vegas nightlife are also contributing to the high rate of STDs.

There is also the shame and embarrassment that many residents often feel when they contract a STD, and this can make it difficult for them to discuss the problem with their partner. Even if the person initially infected has been treated, their partner is still potentially at risk.
