About

Overview

Popular culture depicts sex as glamorous but ignores some of the negative consequences, such as sexually transmitted infections. This resource provides a thorough, non-judgmental understanding of the disease gonorrhea, how it is transmitted, how it manifests in the body, and the effects of the disease if left untreated. This book also covers the negative social impact of dealing with a sexually transmitted disease and includes resources for finding professional help. The book is designed to complement a school health curriculum and covers the material in a way that is appropriate and engaging for younger teens.
