Testing

Anyone who is SEXUALLY ACTIVE should be tested once a year.   (This includes vaginal, oral, and/or anal sex.)

 

Don’t have any symptoms? Most people do NOT, which is why getting tested is important to prevent permanent damage.

  • You may still have an STD even though you feel fine.

  • Some STDs are easily treated and cured so early detection is key.
