RE - TEENAGE SEX - parents' question
Jan 10, 2005

Dear doctor, thank you very much for your answer. I talked to my parents and told them about your answer.

You said it's very, very small risk. Does it mean it's smaller risk than as you once wrote "being hit by a meteorite" or is it small but real risk and I should get tested just in case.

Thank you and sory for taking so much of your time.

Response from Dr. Dieterich

It is on the meteorite scale. Just remember, though when you do start having sex to be safe and use a condom! Be well! DTD
