STD Quiz – Are you at Risk?
No one wants to talk about STDs.
It can be an uncomfortable, embarrassing topic. We get that. But it’s also one that can be life changing and even deadly, so we’re okay with a little discomfort and embarrassment. Why? Because statistics tell us that 1 in 2 sexually active teens will contract a STD by the time they are 25. That’s right, half. How? Because many won’t know they even have a STD and will pass it on to each new partner.
That’s why it’s so important to get testing and treatment if you’re at risk. At Collage, we want to take the discomfort and embarrassment out of the process. We want you to have a place where you can ask questions and get the answers you need. We want to provide testing and treatment that puts your overall health first and foremost. So take this STD quiz and find out if you’re at risk.
1. Have you been diagnosed with a STD such as Chlamydia or Gonorrhea in the past 2 years?
2. Have you had vaginal sex in the past 12 months?
3. Have you had oral sex in the past 12 months?
4. Have you had anal sex in the past 12 months?
5. If yes to questions 2, 3, or 4, has it been more than 12 months since you had a STD test?
6. Have you had multiple sex partners?
7. Have you exchanged bodily fluids: semen, vaginal fluids, or blood?
8. Have you touched your sex organs after touching your partner’s sex organs?
If you answered yes to one or more of the questions in the STD quiz, you’re at risk for having a STD. If you answered no, you may still be at a lower risk. STDs can also be transmitted through indirect sexual contact between partners such as skin-to-skin contact. They can also be transferred through kissing if one partner has been infected after oral sex.
While condoms can provide some protection for a few STDs, they aren’t 100% effective for any. If you’ve been sexually active, the only to know for sure whether you have a STD is to get tested.
STD Testing and Treatment
Collage is now offering testing and treatment for girls for Chlamydia and Gonorrhea, two of the most common STDs. Guys, we’ll be ready for you in January. If you think you may be at risk we recommend refraining from any sexual contact until you have been tested and cleared. Please contact us to talk about testing options or to schedule an appointment.
