Sexually Transmitted Infections, or STIs for short, are infectious diseases that generally spreads from person-to-person through sexual contact, including vaginal, oral, and anal sex.  It is important to know that STIs do not always cause symptoms or may only cause mild symptoms, so it may be possible to have an infection and not know it.

If you are sexually active, you should talk with your doctor about getting routinely tested for STIs.  If you are diagnosed with an STI, know that all can be treated with medicine and some can be cured entirely.

STIs are preventable through different methods.  If you have sex, know what you can do to protect both yourself and your sexual partner(s).  To learn more about different STIs, check out the information below.
