Topic Tuesday: I tested clean for STIs at my last exam a year ago. When should I get tested again?

It is possible to have an STI without having symptoms, which is why testing is so important! The CDC recommends that women less than 26years of age be screened annually. Women 26y and older should be screened for any high-risk sexual behavior including: unprotected intercourse with a new partner, multiple sexual partners, exposure to a partner with an STI, or if you are having any symptoms of vaginal irritation or discharge.
