Shocking news from the Centers for Disease Control. It says if your teenage daughter has three girlfriends, chances are, one of them has a sexually–transmitted disease.
The CDC says at least one in four teenage girls has an STD. Even girls who say they've only had sex once have a one in five chance of being infected.
The CDC screened over 800 teen girls for HPV, chlamydia, herpes and trichomoniasis. The girls were not screened for syphilis, gonorrhea or HIV.
Other CDC studies found well under half of young women who get pregnancy tests and emergency contraception aren't screened for STDs.
STDs cost the U.S. more than $15 billion ever year.
