Dont Guess. Get a Test.

Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) often have NO symptoms, or can masquerade as other things. You may have an STD and not know it. That’s why we say, “Don’t guess. Get a test.”

Get the Facts.

There are more than 20 million new STD cases per year. Half of all new STD infections are between the ages of 15 and 24 years old. Chlamydia is the most frequently reported STD and gonorrhea the second. Rates have been increasing nationally and locally for three years in a row. Two-thirds of all reported gonorrhea and chlamydia cases in suburban Cook County are between 15 and 24 years old.
