Our lab-quality STD testing is confidential & free of charge.
Sexually transmitted disease (STD) is a common result of having multiple sexual partners – or even one partner, if he or she is infected.
Any form of sex (oral, vaginal, anal), as well as intimate skin to skin contact, can spread STDs, even if you are using contraception. People who have had an STD and have been treated can get infected again if they have sexual contact with an infected person.
