Top 5 Reasons to Get Tested

  1. Half of all STIs diagnosis are among young adults under 25 years old.
  2. If you are sexually active or thinking about becoming sexually active, getting STIs/HIV testing is recommended as part of your routine health care.
  3. Many STIs don’t have symptoms. The only way to know your status is to get tested.
  4. Sexual behaviors and circumstances can put young adults at risk for getting STIs/HIV:
    • Unprotected penetrative or oral sex
    • Multiple sex partners
    • Anonymous sex partners
    • Intoxicated sex
    • Not getting routine STI/HIV testing
  5. Getting tested at Health & Wellness is confidential, convenient, and you get a free $5 gift card to either Breaking New Grounds, Rise-n-Grind, or The Juicery (it’s kinda a no-brainer).
