What is an STD/STI?
Sexually transmitted infections (STIs), also known as sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), are infections that are passed from one person to another during vaginal, anal, or oral sex.
They’re really common, and lots of people who have them don’t have any symptoms. STIs can be dangerous, but the good news is that getting tested is no big deal, and most are easy to treat.
Should I get tested for STIs?
Most of the time STIs don’t show symptoms so testing is the only way to know for sure. You should get tested:
- If you notice any signs of an STI. Some common symptoms for STIs include:
- Sores on genitals
- Discharge from penis or vagina
- Itching and burning during urination
- If you’ve had unprotected sex (no condom, internal condom, or dental dam)
- If you are ready to have sex with someone new. Most STIs have no symptoms, so you can’t tell by just looking
- If your partner has an STI
How does STI testing work?
STI testing is quick and easy. It isn’t always part of your regular checkup so make sure to ask for STI testing.
During your visit, be honest with the nurses and doctors so they can help you figure out which tests are best for you.
STI testing may include:
- A urine test
- A cheek swab
- A blood test
- A physical exam
It takes a few days to get the results. Once your results are in, your health care provider will contact you.
