HPV Vaccine

The HPV vaccine is three shots over a six-month period that protect against various strands of the human papillomavirus, or HPV. The vaccine protects against the strains that cause most cases of cervical cancer and genital warts.

When should I get it? - If you’re between the ages of 13 and 26 and haven’t yet received all three shots.


Pre-exposure prophylaxis, also known as PrEP, is a daily pill that can help prevent HIV. PrEP is taken prior to exposure and reduces your risk of getting HIV by 90 percent. It is intended for long-term use. PrEP is for those who don’t have HIV but are at an increased risk of contracting it.

When should I get it? - If your partner has HIV, if you have a partner who is at high risk of getting HIV, and/or if you have many partners and don't use condoms regularly.

STI/HIV Testing

If you don’t have symptoms, STI/HIV testing involves a urine test and a blood draw to test for the following: gonorrhea, chlamydia, HIV, and syphilis. You can also get a rapid HIV test using a finger stick. If you have symptoms, then a clinician will examine your symptoms before testing.

When should I get it? - Either once a year or before/after every new partner, whichever comes first.

Testicular Cancer Screenings

A testicular cancer screening is an examination of your testicles for differences in size, shape, or texture - as well as the appearance of new bumps or hard lumps. The earlier testicular cancer is found, the easier it is to treat because it's less likely the cancer has spread past the testicles.

When should I get it? - When you notice any unusual changes in size, shape or texture of your testicles.

UTI Treatments

A urinary tract infection (UTI) is an infection in the urinary tract. Symptoms of an UTI include burning or pain during urination, the urge to urinate when your bladder is empty, an uncontrollable urge to urinate all the time, and/or lower abdominal pain or back pain.

When should I get it? - When you are experiencing any of the above symptoms.


A vasectomy is a form of permanent birth control where the tubes that bring sperm from the testes to the semen are cut or blocked. There is little to no recovery time after the procedure, as most patients can return to work the next day. Because vasectomies are permanent, they should only be considered if you’re sure you don’t want any, or any more, children.

When should I get it? - When you don’t want any, or any more, children.
