According to the CDC, 1 in 3 sexually active people by the age of 24 will have contracted an STD. If you have had sex with more than one person, you are at risk. If you have only had sex with your partner but your partner has had sex with someone else, you are still at risk.
Even without symptoms, STDs can be present and passed to others. Many of the STDs begin without symptoms and may hide for months, even years, without surfacing. For example, 75% of women with Chlamydia have no symptoms at all. Here at Oasis Medical Center, you can be tested for Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, Bacterial Vaginosis, Trichomonas, HIV, and Syphilis in a non-judgmental, confidential environment at no cost. Oasis provides treatment for Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, Bacterial Vaginosis, and Trichomonas at no cost. For more information on STD/STIs and your sexual health contact our nurse.
