STDS, STIS and your health
Every year in the U.S. there are an estimated 20 million new STD infections, and nearly half of all new STD cases occur in people ages 15 to 24. Anyone who is sexually active is at risk for contracting an STD, no matter what form of birth control you use.
Many people who are infected do not have symptoms and don't know they have an STD. Even if you haven't experienced any symptoms, you may still need to get tested.
when should I get tested?
You need to get tested if:
you've recently had unprotected sex
you've had a change in partners
you have experienced itching or burning in your pelvic area
you are pregnant
you have scheduled an abortion
You may need to get tested even if you have no symptoms or consistently use a condom. Sex always carries the risks of STIs and STDs, even oral and anal sex.
We provide free STI testing and treatment for women. If you test positive, free testing and treatment is available to your partner.
