Did you know that April is STD Awareness Month? Probably not seeing as it’s not the most exciting thing to celebrate. I’m not sure many cities or towns hold parades with condom floats rolling down the street and children with “Yay, Herpes!” balloons tied to their wrists.
Well, it is. And while it’s not the most fun thing to celebrate, STD awareness is incredibly important.
In conjunction with the month long push by the CDC, Planned Parenthood and other medical organizations, CollegeCandy will be halting regular posting tomorrow and devoting the entire day to STD awareness. We’ve teamed up with some really knowledgeable and important people who know their stuff to bring you some pretty important information on STDs and how to protect yourself.
1 in 4 college women have an STD and only 10% know it. 10%!! Check back in with us all day tomorrow to avoid being a statistic. And in the meantime, go get tested. It’s the only way to protect yourself and prevent spreading anything icky on to that guy you’ve been eyeing in the caf.
