STDs (Sexually Transmitted Diseases) are infections that people usually get by having sex with someone who already has one. Some STDs can be treated and cured with antibiotic medicine. Others cannot be cured. But many of those can be treated to make them easier to live with.

Anyone can get an STD. It has nothing to do with how "clean" someone is or how the person dresses or acts. Most people who get an STD, including HIV, are not aware that the person they are having sex with has this type of infection.

Tulare County’s Visalia Health Care Center can test you for STDs. See the Contact and Location tab for details.
