HIV and STI Testing

HIV and STI Testing

Some STIs can go unnoticed or have symptoms that can be mistaken for a minor illness. So the only way to know for sure that you have an infection is to get tested. To find out more about a wide range of STIs, symptoms, and treatment, go to the CDC’s STI information page.

It is suggested by the CDC and the Pennsylvania Department of Health that individuals who are sexually active get a regular screening for STIs at least once a year. You can find HIV and STI testing in your area by entering your zip code at gettested.cdc.gov (or click on the image below). If you don’t get a list of results on your first try, you can broaden your search area beyond the preset ten mile radius. A lot of testing locations are free.

If you still need help in finding testing, or have basic questions about STIs, you can send a message to our online outreach program manager at rgy2@pitt.edu with the word “question” in the subject line.
