GYT: Get Yourself Tested!

Nationally and locally, there has been a rise in Chlamydia rates among young people.  Many STIs, like chlamydia, are frequently asymptomatic, so you don't know for sure if you are STI-free without getting tested.

  • STI testing should be completed at least once a year if you are sexually active and have no symptoms.  
  • More frequent testing is recommended if you have symptoms, new or multiple sexual partners, inconsistent condom use (outside of a monogamous relationship), recent STI diagnosis, and other high risk behaviors.
