Why is regular testing for STIs important?

Getting regularly tested can help you detect a silent disease and prevent complications. It also reduces the likelihood of passing an STI on to other people. Many STIs can be cured with antibiotics, and all can be managed with the right medication.

How common are STIs?

More than 1 million sexually transmitted infections (STIs) are acquired every day worldwide, the majority of which are asymptomatic.

What happens if STIs remain untreated?

Untreated STDs can lead to many health complications, including pelvic inflammatory disease, cervical cancer, neurological diseases, birth defects, and infertility.
