Sexually transmitted infections (STIs), previously termed sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) are infections that are spread through sexual contact. There are many ways to prevent STIs, so it is important to choose the methods that work for you.
You should get tested for STIs if you have not been tested since your last sexual partner(s). To minimize the spread of infection, it is recommended that any person who is sexually active be tested at least once a year. Depending on your sex practices, you may want to get tested more frequently.
