Texas has the 2nd highest repeat teen birthrate in the nation.
A 2015 health study has found an alarming rise in El Paso County of sexually transmitted diseases. The report, conducted by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute, shows that chlamydia cases in the county far exceed statewide and national rates.
Texas joins many of the Southern States in suffering from a disproportionaly increased rate of STDs, HIV and Teen Pregnancy. The birthrate among teens in Texas is the 3rd highest in the nation, with repeat teen birthrates being the 2nd highest.
In El Paso, the Wisconsin Population Health Institute and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation revealed in a report that 600 new chlamydia cases had been recorded for every 100,000 people in 2013, which is far above the state average of 488 per 100,000.
Experts attribute part of this problem to the inadequacies of the abstinence-only education that’s taught in most Texas public schools. Abstaining from sexual contact until marriage remains the absolute best way to ensure you don’t become infected with an STD or HIV, but many high school students do not choose to abstain. In one study, 45.9% of Texas high school students said they had engaged in sexual intercourse, with 47.1% of those students admitting they had not used a condom during their last encounter.
It’s critically important that you practice safe sex if you plan to not abstain. The number of new STD cases falls disproportionately on young people ages 15-29, and many more young people aren’t even aware they are infected.

Private Testing Center strives to offer affordable, discreet and convenient testing in an effort to prevent the spread of STDs and HIV.
The CDC estimates there are 20 million new cases of STDs in the U.S. each year, with 50% of those new cases falling on young people ages 15 to 24.
In one study, they examined 1,000 adolescents and found that 1 in 4 of them had at least 1 common STD, and 15% were infected with more then one. Most participants in the study showed no symptoms and didn’t even realize they were infected. Even among people who only had one partner in their lifetimes, 1 in 5 still had an STD — but of those with three or more partners, 50% had an STD.
The good news is that many STDs are curable, and those without a cure are treatable. You owe it to yourself and others to find answers and protect yourself. Private Testing Center has 1500 locations nationwide in one of the largest laboratory networks anywhere in the world. Same day appointments are available with scheduling as soon as 15 minutes after calling. The average lab visit lasts just 15 minutes and some results are available the following day.
