STI Banner 

Anyone who is sexually active can get gonorrhea and chlamydia and most persons that are infected do not have any symptoms.  The Center for Disease Control (CDC) recommends that individuals, aged 13-64 get tested for HIV once in their lifetime and those with risk factors (unprotected sex, needle sharing, multiple partners) get tested more frequently.  Sexually transmitted diseases are just infections and they infect people regardless of race, gender, religion or sexual orientation.  Both gonorrhea and chlamydia can be cured with the right medication, but they can cause serious health conditions in men and women if not treated.  If not treated, these infections can make it difficult for a woman to get pregnant.


Persons that come to our clinic for testing will be counseled on the importance of preventing STD infections by decreasing the risk factors in their lives.  All services are confidential.
