Are YOU at risk?

STI infections are common.

 

Could I have an STI (Sexually transmitted infection)?

You might think you’d know if you had an infection. But, many STIs have no noticeable symptoms.

Should I be tested?

Anyone who’s sexually active and has had an incident of unprotected sex (without the use of a condom) is at risk. You are also at risk if you or the person you are having sex with have had more than one sexual partner. You and your partner should both be tested.

What is the test like?

It’s a simple urinalysis – you’ll be asked to urinate in a cup.

How does this work?

Testing at our clinic is free and confidential. Call for an appointment. Come in for the test. We can test women for Chlamydia and Gonorrhea. We’ll call you back in a few days and give you the results. If you have an STI, we can refer you to places for treatment.

How do I protect myself from getting an STI?

The best way is not to have sex. If you are already sexually active, condoms are the best protection – but are not 100% effective -- if they are used correctly and consistently every time you have oral, vaginal or anal sex.
