What are Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs)?


Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs) are bacterial and viral infections that are passed from one person to person intimate contact such as anal, oral, and vaginal sex.  Examples of common STIs include chlamydia, gonorrhea, genital herpes, human papillomavirus (HPV), syphilis, and HIV. 

Many STIs do not show symptoms, so the only way to know for sure if you have an STI is to get tested. Even without symptoms, many STIs can cause damage.

The good news is all STIs are treatable, and most are curable!  Testing and early treatment are key to maintaining your sexual health and the health of your partner(s).
