They are becoming sexually active at a younger age; many meet partners in school


MORE than 500 teenagers so far this year have been diagnosed with sexually transmitted infections at the DSC Clinic in Kelantan Lane.

Most of the girls were found to have chlamydia while the boys had gonorrhoea. Both sexes also had genital herpes and genital warts.

Sexually transmitted infections (STIs) have been on the rise among teenagers. Last year, 791 teens were diagnosed with STIs at the DSC, more than three times the 238 cases in 2002. As of August this year, the number was 526.

Other statistics also point to people becoming more sexually aware from a young age.

A survey last year of 226 sexually active teens between the ages 10 and 19 found that three of them had their first sexual encounter at 11.

More than half have had at least three sex partners. One teen had 34, which might indicate that he or she was getting money for sex.
