Drugs, Sex and Condoms

Drug abuse is usually the catalysts for men and women lives to spiral out of control. Money and your sanity are ruled by your new found friend. The more you use the more you need. With the use of drugs, men and women would contest that they sometimes partake in risky sexual behaviour. Of course having unprotected sex can lead to a number of problems. Un-wanted pregnancies or contracting a sexual transmitted disease. Even though doctors know of the facts and tend not scan their patients if they are under 18. This makes no sense because it’s a well-known fact that most people lose their virginity when they are teenagers and start to experimental sex while using drugs and alcohol.
The good news are that Test facilities now have the rights to test the young for the use of drugs or alcohol. The test can now be done within a few minutes, which mean no waiting.

Identify High risk Areas

These young people or area is then identified to be of high risk, these youngsters are known to partake in risky sexual behaviour. When we refer to risky sexual behaviour we talk about boys that don’t use condoms and girls that don’t indicate to the boy to use some sort of contraceptive like condoms. The group study also indicates that these high risk areas are known to partake in drugs and alcohol abuse. Risky sexual behaviour includes having sex with multiple sexual partners and also to have sex without a condom.

While studying one of these high risk area, the researchers found that those kids that tested positive to the use of drugs and alcohol were almost 40% more likely to not use a condom. With this information the governmental areas can target these areas in terms of educating them with the dangers of using drugs and alcohol abuse. They also can explain to these youngsters, where and how to use condoms.  Physicians have been noted to be the front line to recognize adolescents that may be using drugs or the abusing alcohol. In most cases these questions can be done in a private room at the clinic and does not necessarily have to be done in front of a parent.  In has been noted that some clinics would like to avoid these questions to their clientele if the parent is not earshot.
