1 in 2 sexually active people will get an STD by the age of 25. Most won't know it. Testing is the only way to find out if you have an STD. Know yourself and know your status regarding STD's.
Who should get tested?
All sexually active men and women, especially if under the age of 26.
How often should I get tested?
If you are sexually active and under the age of 26, get tested every year, and more often if you change/add partners.
I don't have any symptoms. Do I still need testing?
Yes. The most common bacterial STD (chlamydia) does not have symptoms in the majority of people. Other STD's also frequently do not produce symptoms.
Which STD's should I be tested for?
If you do not have symptoms, get tested for chlamydia and gonorrhea every year, and for HIV at least once.
If you have symptoms, you may need testing for other STD's such as gonorrhea, syphilis, and herpes. Your health care provider will guide you through this question.
Do I have to have an exam?
It depends on whether you have symptoms. It is best to discuss that with a health care provider. An appointment at MUMC is the easiest way to decide what is best for you.
Doesn’t my doctor’s office at home automatically test me for STD’s at my annual visit?
No, you have to ask to be tested. Even if you have had a urine, blood test, or pap test, it doesn’t automatically mean STD testing was done. Ask to be sure.
