Figuring out your relationship status is hard. Figuring out your STD status doesn't have to be. 

Most of the time, STDs have no symptoms, which makes testing the only way to know for sure if you have an STD. If you're sexually active (meaning you have vaginal, anal, or oral sex), get tested regularly.
