Sexual health: You are never too old

A recent online survey revealed that 58% of The British population have never been tested for an STI (Sexually Transmitted Infection) also known as STD (Sexually Transmitted Diseases). Whilst this raises to a staggering 85% for 53 to 71-year-olds.

However, there is little evidence that this age group has abstained from sex or that they were particularly cautious when it comes to safe sex. Given the symptom less nature of many STIs, this lack of testing could be seen as almost reckless.

A lack of education

The same survey discovered that a third of people asked claimed that they had never received any education about STIs at school. A further 20% said the sex education they did receive was limited or of poor quality.

Just recently, the British government recognised the lack of credible sex education. They have insisted that this must change. In fact, these lessons are to become compulsory at secondary schools from September 2020. Children as young as four will be introduced to the basic concept of relationships.

Whilst this must be welcomed, it still means that a large number of our ageing population could be unwittingly infected by STIs by others who never considered being tested despite their lifestyle choices.
