STDs impact young people the hardest. In the U.S., almost half of all new infections in 2018 were among people aged 15-24.
If you are sexually active, you can lower your risk of getting an STD several ways, including by using a condom the right way from start to finish.
Almost all STDs that can be spread via condomless vaginal sex also can be spread through oral and anal sex without a condom.
You can’t tell if someone has an STD just by looking at them. Many STDs don’t cause any symptoms, so the only way to know for sure is to get tested.
Even if you use birth control, you should still think about STD prevention. Birth control methods like the pill, patch, ring, and IUD are very effective at preventing pregnancy, but they do not protect against STDs and HIV.
The most reliable way to avoid STDs is to not have vaginal, anal, or oral sex.

All STDs, even HIV, are treatable, and most are curable. The sooner you get tested, the sooner you can take action to protect your health and the health of your partner(s).
