STIs / STDs

STI or STD? 
"A sexually transmitted infection (STI) is a virus, bacteria, fungus, or parasite people can get through sexual contact. Many STIs have no symptoms, so people can have an infection but not know it. A sexually transmitted disease (STD) develops because of an STI and the term implies that the infection has led to some symptom of disease. People sometimes use the terms in one another’s place. The primary goal of public health and healthcare is to prevent and treat infections before they develop into disease." -  Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

STI Fact Sheets (CDC Links): 

If you are sexually active, getting tested is one of the most important things you can do to help keep yourself and others healthy. In some cases, STD's have no symptoms, which means testing is the only accurate way to know if someone has an std and needs treatment.
