GLADWIN COUNTY - National Condom Week is Feb. 14-21. This week is used to educate consumers, patients, students, and professionals about the prevention of sexually transmitted infections (STI's),AIDS and teenage pregnancy. The only way to prevent STI's, AIDS and pregnancy is abstinence but if that option is not for you, using a condom or latex barrier is another way of preventing infections.

The national and state statistics for STI 's are disheartening;due to the fact we continue to have an increase in infections that are easily avoided by use of condoms. The national rate of Chlamydia is the highest ever reported for any STI, with a total of 1,307,893 cases in 2010.
