What Is a Sexually Transmitted Disease?

Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) are infections acquired by sexual contact. People get infected by having unprotected sex with a partner that has an infection. The problem is, they cannot always tell if someone is infected. STD testing is the only way to know.

Common sexually transmitted diseases and infections include:
Bacterial Vaginosis (BV)
Genital Herpes
Genital Warts (HPV)
Hepatitis (A, B, & C)

A person may have an STD without knowing it, especially hepatitis. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) estimates that there are 19 million new STD infections every year in the United States. People with chronic hepatitis can live with it for decades without having symptoms or feeling sick. Many people don’t know how or when they got infected. That's why routine testing is important. It is the only way to know whether or not you have an infection. STD testing is fast, confidential, and affordable. Schedule your test today and get quick results. You can order a partial test (like for hepatitis only) or a full panel test. Talk to a doctor if the test comes back positive so you can get treated quickly.
