STI and HIV Testing
A sexually transmitted infection (STI) is an infection caused by bacteria, parasite, or virus that is spread by contact with semen, vaginal fluids, or blood and by skin-to-skin contact during sexual activity. You can reduce your risk of contracting or passing an STI by using condoms and dental dams during sexual activity.
Anybody who is sexually active is at risk for getting an STI and more than half of all people will have an STI at some point in their lives. The most common symptom for most STIs is no symptom. Therefore, it is important to know how to protect yourself against getting an STI and to get tested annually if you are sexually active. You may need to get STI testing more often if you have unprotected sex and/or have multiple partners.
