25% of Young Women Infected: Shocking results from a recent study by the Center for Disease Control show that one out of every four girls ages 14-19 has an STD. That translates into approximately 3 million infected girls – about 40% of all girls who admit to having had sex. The HPV virus was the most common infection.
