Did you know – Your Sexual Health is Important

You may be worried about pregnancy, but getting a sexually transmitted disease (STD) or sexually transmitted infection (STI) is something that can happen any time you have sex. You may have an STD and not even know it because not everyone exhibits symptoms.

What do I need to know about STDs?

  • More than a dozen STDs exist
  • STDs can be treated, but some can’t be cured
  • There are 19 million new infections each year (Over half are diagnosed in people between the ages of 15 and 24)

How could I get one?

STDs are passed between people during any type of sexual activity such as vaginal, oral, or anal sex, outercourse, or mutual masturbation.  They’re passed through bodily fluids and sometimes skin-to-skin contact.

What should I do if I have an STD or STI?

If your screening comes back positive (including for chlamydia or gonorrhea), we’ll refer you to a doctor who can get you the treatment you need.

Choices does not currently provide free STD screening.  You will need to go to a medical professional to receive that testing.
