STI stands for Sexually Transmitted Infection. It is a disease or infection that can be spread from one person to person through sexual activity. Sexual Activity can include intercourse (vaginal sex), anal sex, oral sex, and skin to skin contact.

The most common symptom of an STI is NO symptom at all. Most people that have an STI do not know it. Don’t wait for symptoms to appear. If you are sexually active getting tested by a health care provider regularly is the best way to find out if you have an STI.
