According to the CDC, an estimated 1.1 million people in the United States are living with HIV, including about 166,000 people who are unaware of their status. Thirty percent of new HIV infections are transmitted by people who are living with undiagnosed HIV. For those who are living with undiagnosed HIV, testing is the first step in maintaining a healthy life and reducing the spread of HIV.

Sexually Transmitted Infections (STI)
STI's infect 1 in 4 adolescents and adults.
There are many STI's, bacterial and viral. STI's are serious, sometimes painful, and can cause a lot of damage. There are some STI's that will only infect your reproductive organs, but other STI's such as HIV, Hepatitis and Syphilis can cause infections throughout your body. Many do not cause any symptoms at first; however, regardless of symptoms you may still spread the STI to another partner until you are properly treated.
Viral STI's cannot be cured, but with proper treatment, symptoms can be controlled. The ONLY way to know if you have a STI is through medical testing.
