How often should I be tested for STDs?
It depends. Here are the current testing recommendations.
How can I get the most out of my appointment?
Be honest and open about your sexual history, partner(s), and substance abuse/misuse. When our medical providers have all of your information they can provide better care for you.

Bacterial, fungal, and parasitic infections are usually curable (but you can get reinfected). Viral STDs (Herpes, HPV, HIV, and some Hepatitis) cannot be cured but can be treated with proper care and medication.
