 Should I get tested for STDs?

Most of the time STDs don’t show symptoms so testing is the only way to know for sure.

You should get tested if:

  • Your partner has an STD
  • There are sores on your genitals
  • There is discharge from your penis or vagina
  • You have itching and/or burning during urination
  • You’ve had unprotected sex (no condom, internal condom, or dental dam)
  • You are ready to have sex with someone new. Most STDs don’t have symptoms, so you can’t tell by just looking

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.

Which STD tests do I need?

There is no single test for every sexually transmitted infection — tests are specific to each infection. And some infections can even be found using different kinds of tests. You and your health care provider will decide what tests make the most sense for you. 

Why should I get tested for STDs?

Getting tested can put your mind at ease or get you (and your partner) needed treatment. It's also important to learn about ways you and your partner can protect yourselves in the future through safer sex.
