Five Minutes or Less for Health Weekly Tip: Prevent STDs

Prevent STDs

Take a minute to help prevent the spread of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), including HIV:

  • Remember the ABCs: Abstain, Be faithful, and use Condoms.
  • Know your status. Make an appointment to get tested, and encourage your sexual partner(s) to get tested. To find an HIV testing center near you, visit http://www.hivtest.org or text your zip code to Knowit (566948).
  • Pay attention to your body. If you notice a discharge, sore, or other problems, make an appointment to get checked. Note, however, that not all STDs have symptoms.
