Singapore is an educated and developed country. But few recent figures have shown that after the seven years of declining rate, Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STD) in youngsters have started rising once again. The young people in the country are aware of using safety precautions during sexual intercourse, but they do not want to use them. The figures show that youngsters below sixteen years of age have several sexual partners, and the situations push them to opt for anonymous STD testing in Singapore healthcare centers.

According to the latest figures of Department of Sexually Transmitted Infections Control (DSC), in 2015, 421 boys and girls between the age of 10 to 19 were infected from STD, and in the year 2014, there were 391 such cases. The number of young STD patients has been increasing in the country consistently. In 2007, there were record-breaking 820 cases of STD in youngsters. Specialist clinics handle 80% of such cases. In 2013, DSC published a study in a public domain, which showed that almost 25% of boys and 90% of girls had lacked confidence in safety measures. In some cases, one partner is forced to go without any safety precaution. Hence in 2013, STD test in Singapore of youngsters was at peak level.

Dr. Suzanna Sulaiman, a consultant at KKH’s department of obstetrics and gynecology said, “Compared with adults, pregnant adolescents may not understand what a healthy pregnancy entails, a pregnant adolescent whose tests positive for STD will be informed and educated on prevention and contraception, and be treated. “
