Older people risk STIs31st January 2008
New research has indicated that the over-50s are increasingly putting themselves at risk of sexually transmitted infections because they are not using condoms.
Saga magazine questioned almost 8,000 people aged 50 or over and found that more than 10% did not use a condom to prevent infection. The perception, says Saga, is that STis are an issue for the young and because the over-50s do not need contraception to prevent pregnancy, it is all right for them to have unprotected sex.
