13. THE QUESTION WAS:  What is the most common sexually transmitted disease in America?

a.      herpes

b.      AIDS

c.       gonorrhea

d.      syphilis

e.      HPV



HPV, or the human papillomavirus, has affected 20 million Americans. HPV is the virus that causes cervical cancer. The government recommends abstinence for the prevention of this disease, since condoms have a high failure rate for this virus. That’s because this disease is transmitted through skin contact rather than through fluids. The government has said the affect of condoms is “unknown” when it comes to HPV.
