Thinking about getting tested?

Getting tested for sexually transmitted diseases and infections (STDs/STIs) is easier than ever either in-person or with at home STD testing kits. 

It's a good idea to get tested if you:

  • had a new sexual partner since your last test.
  • had unprotected sex.
  • think your partner may have an STD. 
  • are experiencing symptoms — but remember, STDs don't always cause symptoms.
  • if you think you've been exposed to HIV within the last 3-days, call to discuss PEP to prevent HIV infection.
