Sexually transmitted infections (STIs)
Many sexually transmitted infections (STIs) can be easily diagnosed and treated. Anyone who is sexually active should get tested regularly for STI, also commonly referred to as a sexually transmitted disease or STD. Sometimes a person with a sexually transmitted infection has no symptoms, which means they can pass it on to their partners without knowing.
If you or your partner have an STI, you both need to be treated at the same time to avoid reinfection.
