The North Jefferson Women's Center offers STD (Sexually Transmitted Diseases) testing for men and women for the three most commonly reported STD -Chlamydia, Gonorrhea and Syphilis – and HIV.

If you have ever had ANY sexual contact (including skin-to-skin, anal and oral), you are at risk for STDs (sexually transmitted diseases), and the more partners you have had, the higher your risk.

The following chart shows your exposure risk if you and your partner(s) have each had the same number of partners.

STD FACTS

-Of the estimated nearly 20 million new Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STD) cases in the U.S. each year, half will occur in people age 15-24.

-STDs increase a person's risk for contracting HIV.

-Alabama ranks #5 in the country for reported number of cases of Chlamydia and #3 in Gonorrhea, as well as #5 in cases of infants born with Syphilis.

-Over 80% of teens with STDs show no symptoms.

-Condoms do not eliminate the risk of contracting an STD and they do little to prevent many viral infections spread by skin-to-skin contact.

-Nearly 1 in 10 teen girls has Chlamydia; nearly half of all cases are girls 15-19 years old.
    -Chlamydia can cause irreversible damage, including infertility, before a woman recognizes there is a problem.

-Gonorrhea is a major cause of Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID) that can lead to serious outcomes in women such as tubal infertility, ectopic pregnancy and chronic pelvic pain.
