Your Sexual Health Matters

If you are sexually active, getting tested for Sexually Transmitted Infections is crucial for your health. Untreated STI's can create an elevated risk for infections through pregnancy or an abortion procedure.

Whether oral, vaginal, or anal—there is always a risk for sexually transmitted diseases or sexually transmitted infections with sexual activity.

Sexually transmitted diseases and infections can be caused by viruses, bacteria, and parasites, and some have little to no symptoms. Some diseases may last a lifetime or prove life-threatening.

Getting tested and treated is important to avoid potential long-term harm to yourself and the risk of spreading them to others.

Will I Have Symptoms if I Have Sexually Transmitted Infections?

Many people who have an STI experience no noticeable symptoms or may not recognize the symptoms for what they are. You can be infected or infect someone else without even knowing it. It is extremely important that you are properly diagnosed and treated promptly.

Many who have chlamydia don’t develop symptoms, but they can still infect others through sexual contact. Symptoms may include genital pain and discharge from the vagina or penis.

Symptoms of gonorrhea may include painful urination, abnormal discharge from the penis or vagina and some men may experience testicular pain. Most women with gonorrhea do not have any symptoms and are at risk for developing serious complications.
