STI testing graphicSTIs

Sexually transmitted infections (STIs) are transmitted through unprotected sex, including oral, anal and vaginal sex. Any sexually active person may be exposed to an STI and should get tested regularly, at least twice a year.

Many STIs have no symptoms and if left untreated can result in infertility in both sexes and other serious medical conditions, which is why STI testing or screening is so important. If you are pregnant and think you might have have an STI, it is particularly important to get tested and treated as soon as possible.

The good news is that treatment for most STIs is simple and painless. Some of the most common STIs can be treated with a one-day antibiotic course.
