Get the Facts

  1. Sexually Transmitted infections
  2. Birth Control

What you need to know:

  • Anyone who is sexually active can get an STI.
  • STIs are common, and on the rise.
  • Sometimes you can have an STI and not have any symptoms. The only way to know for sure is to get tested.
  • Sometimes you can have an STI and not even know it.

    The only way to know for sure if you have one is to get tested.

  • If STIs aren’t treated, they can be serious. For example, if left untreated, chlamydia [external link] and gonorrhea can make it harder to get pregnant in the future.
  • Some STIs, like herpes, aren’t curable, but a healthcare provider can prescribe medicine to manage symptoms and treat the infection. If you have an STI, talk to your healthcare provider.
  • If you choose to have sex, you can protect yourself against STIs. You and your partner should get tested before you have sex, only have one sex partner at a time and use protection. JCPH also provides PrEP, a medication that, when taken as directed, significantly reduces the chances of getting HIV.
