Talk, Test, Treat in April

April is Sexually Transmitted Disease (STD) Awareness Month. Help fight STDs with 3 simple steps — talk to your health care provider about STDs and how to prevent them, get tested for STDs like chlamydia, gonorrhea, syphilis, and HIV, and if you discover you are living with an infection, get treatment. Most STDs are curable, and getting treatment early not only improves your own health outcomes but can also help protect others.

The number of chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis cases both nationally and locally have been on the rise. Antibiotic-resistant strains of these diseases are always a concern. So talk to your health care provider about risk factors and prevention. if you haven’t been tested, make an appointment today. Call us at (360) 676-6177.
