  STD clinics Tuesday 12 February 2002  
This week is Contraceptive Awareness Week, but despite such on-going campaigns, the number of people visiting STD clinics has doubled over the last ten years. In particular there's been a stark rise in the number of teenage girls contracting Sexually Transmitted Diseases - the number has risen by 56% in the last two years.

Jenni is joined by Dr Cath Rogers, STD consultant at Guys and St Thomas' hospital to find out why this is the case, and what should we be doing about it.
