Sexually transmitted infections (STI) are infections that spread by having anal, oral, or vaginal sex with another person who has an infection.
Because the most common STI symptom is no symptom, it’s important to be proactive in getting tested for sexually transmitted infections (STI) even if you don’t think you’ve been exposed to one.
Many STI’s are curable with medication, however not all. Learn more about STI’s, common symptoms and common treatments by clicking on the fact sheets from the CDC below.
The most reliable way to avoid STI transmission is by abstaining from sex (anal, oral, or vaginal). Using condoms and reducing your number of sex partners can decrease your risk for STI’s if you are sexually active. There is also an HPV vaccination available.
