One in two sexually active young people will get a sexually transmitted disease (STD) by 25. And of the approximately 19 million new STDs that occur every year in the United States, most will go undiagnosed. The only way to know for sure if you have an STD is to GYT (get yourself tested.)  

University Health Services also offers testing for sexually transmitted infections, including HIV. Please click here for more information.
