Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs)

Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STD) are the most commonly reported diseases in Washington State. Many are curable, others are treatable, all are preventable. Most people with STDs don't have obvious symptoms, but without treatment they can spread disease and possibly develop serious complications.

Testing Info
