Under 25s 'particularly vulnerable' to STIs


I would suggest we need to be asking patients if they are sexually active and offering STI testing on admission. I work in paediatrics and only a fool can deny that there are large numbers of children participating in unsafe [and illegal] sexual relationships. If we wait for them to become adults infection may have caused sterility.
