STDs/STIs

STDs/STIs

Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) or infections (STIs) spread from one person to another, usually during vaginal, anal, and oral sex. They’re really common, and lots of people who have them don’t have any symptoms. Without treatment, STDs/STIs can lead to serious health problems. But the good news is that getting tested is no big deal, and most STDs/STIs are easy to treat.

Make an Appointment for STI Testing

Getting tested for STDs/STIs is important: It’s the first step to feeling better if you’re having symptoms. And many infections don’t have symptoms, so getting tested regularly will give you peace of mind. Enter your zip code to find your nearest health center.
