Yes Means Test
On August 29, 2018, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) released new data revealing that STD rates continue to climb in the U.S., with nearly 2.3 million cases reported. From 2013 to 2017:
Syphilis cases nearly doubled.
Gonorrhea cases increased by 67 percent.
Chlamydia remained at record highs.
When cases go undiagnosed or untreated, infections can become severe. Getting an STD is human; it's normal. Don't be too embarrassed to get tested and treated.
A happy and healthy sex life starts by saying #YESmeansTEST. It's as easy as having a chat with your doctor. We can help you figure out which screenings are right for you.
Young women ages 15-24 made up about 45 percent of the 1.7 million reported cases of chlamydia. At a minimum, the CDC recommends that sexually active women under age 25 get tested for chlamydia and gonorrhea every year.
