Abstract

Sex Education among Young Adults to Reduce Sexually Transmitted Infections and Unwanted Pregnancy

Despite greater effectiveness of contraceptive methods, sexually transmitted infections (STIs) still on rise in young adult population 2.8% increase in chlamydia, 5.1% increase in gonorrhea, 15.1% increase in primary and secondary syphilis (Fehring et al., 2017). Fewer than 30% of pediatricians distribute condoms or provide instruction on proper condom use (Schneider et al., 2019).
Advanced practice nurses (APNs) take the lead in providing patient education (Kraus & DuBois, 2017). There are few well-defined rigorous studies on sex education in a young adult population. APNs need to know the state of current knowledge in order to craft effective sex education programs for this population
