What are the signs of an std?

Pregnancy is only one thing that can result from sexual activity. Did you know that the most common symptom for some STIs is no symptom at all? 

You could have an STI and not even know it yet. Many people do not get tested because they don’t realize they have an STI. Don’t wait – get tested!

Some STIs can be cured… some cannot. STIs (also known as STDs) are common and can cause lifelong harm to your body. It is vital to get tested for an STI if you have been sexually active outside of marriage.

You are not immune from getting another STI in the future if you had one before. Some STIs are transmitted from skin-to-skin contact – which means you don’t even have to have sex to get them.

Common STIs include HPV (human papillomavirus or genital warts), Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, and Herpes. 

Contact your local health department for more information on STI testing.

Sex has more than just physical consequences. There are emotional consequences too. We would love to talk to you more about your sexual health and the emotional impact.

Schedule an appointment or walk in for more information on your sexual health.
