Did You Know?
- Anyone having sex can get an STI (STDs are sometimes referred to as STIs).
- Many STIs have no symptoms.
- Almost half of all new STI infections are in youth ages 15-24.
Get Tested. Get Treated.
Testing positive for an STI is not the end. Many STIs are curable and all are treatable. So, get tested and get treated to protect yourself and your partner.
If you or your partner has an STI that can be cured, both of you need to start treatment immediately to avoid getting re-infected. Getting treated right away also can help avoid health problems down the road.
