STI Rates at All-Time High

STI Rates at All-Time High


The Centers for Disease Control recently changed its recommendation that people get tested for sexually transmitted infections (STIs) once every three months versus its previous recommendation of testing once every six months. Right now, STI rates in the United States are at an all-time high, so it’s more important than ever to get tested!



Did you know: 1 in 2 sexually active individuals will contract a STI by the age of 25.

Come by our office for free testing. Yes, we have free HIV testing, but we also offer chlamydia, gonorrhea and syphilis testing for gay/bi-sexual men and transgender individuals.

Remember, upwards of 75 percent of cases have no symptoms at all, so you may be infected and not even realize it.

Come by for a free test Monday to Thursday with extended evening hours on Wednesday and then make it part of your routine every three months.
