Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), also known as sexually transmitted infections (STIs), are fairly common in the U.S. and often go unnoticed. It’s recommended that anyone sexually active be tested for STDs at least once a year to stay on top of their sexual health and get treatment if necessary. Untreated STDs may have long-term health complications, so staying up-to-date on your sexual health is important. At-home STD testing makes it easy to stay informed and protect yourself and your partner, all within the privacy of your own home.

Routine STI/STD screening can help you detect sexually transmitted infections that you may not even have symptoms for. If left untreated, STDs have the potential to cause long term and more significant health issues, including pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), bladder problems, infertility, and more. Getting tested at least once a year is the responsible thing to do for the health of yourself and your partner(s).
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommends that all sexually active people get tested for STDs at least once a year. Specific recommendations can vary depending on risk factors, but most medical professionals agree that testing should be done after engaging in unprotected sex with any new partners.

Additionally, if you test positive and are interested in treatment, consider online STD prescriptions and treatment via Everlywell's virtual visits offering.
