STD Testing & Treatment

Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs) are almost always spread from person to person by vaginal, anal and oral sex.

If you think you may have a STD, get a test from a healthcare provider. Some STDs can be cured using medication prescribed by a medical provider. Do not use home remedies. Remember! Many STDs have no signs and symptoms. Sometimes, the symptoms go away but the STD is still present. Make sure your partner(s) are tested and treated at same time to prevent re-infection.   See our brochure for testing sites located in Racine County.
