CNN.COM - May 14 - At any given time, 110M Americans have a sexually transmitted infection, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Young people contract half of all new cases. They're also tech-savvy, and that's driving the development of new high-tech STD prevention tools geared toward them. Qpid.me users can share their verified test results for HIV, chlamydia, gonorrhea and syphilis. Their status comes directly from their own U.S. health care provider. It shows when they got tested and includes a disclaimer that notes the user may have had sex since then. Another STD tech tool helps people have difficult conversations with past lovers such as sotheycanknow.org. Another STD tech tool out there is an app called STD Triage. Worried you might have symptoms of an STD? This service lets you take a picture of a rash, for example, and for ~$40, you can send it in and get a response back from a doctor within a day about what it might be.
