The number of people infected with three major STDs (chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis) is at an all-time high—yikes! Even worse: Most people between the ages of 15 to 25 have never been tested because they don’t think they’re at risk. But the reality is many STDs don't have any symptoms at all, and out of the 20 million new STIs reported each year, more than half affect young people.
The good news? Most STDs are totally treatable—as long as you catch them early. We want to #ShattertheSTIgma by opening up the conversation. Because there is nothing shameful about having an STI, and getting tested should be NBD.
