Sexually Transmitted Infections

Sexually transmitted infections (STIs) are very common.  By age 25, about half of all sexually active young people will get one. STIs often show no symptoms, so many people who have one don't know it.  The only way to know if you or a partner have an STI is to get tested and knowing helps you to protect each other.
