contracted an STD. Eight to nine percent of adolescents use a condom always for
STD prevention and seventeen percent use a condom to prevent contraception.
Condoms do offer more protection against those STD’s spread by fluids such as

people can date starting from the age of 14. Of course, no one speaks about any
close relations. This idea is based on friendship between a girl and a boy.
Young people should start communicating with the representatives of the
opposite sex as soon as possible.
