The CDC recommends annual STD testing for all sexually active people. If you think you have been exposed to an STD or have a new partner, it is important to get tested. Many STDs do not cause any symptoms and it is possible to spread these diseases and infections without ever having symptoms. Also, all women considering abortion should be tested for STDs even if they are not experiencing any symptoms to ensure that there are no possible complications. The Women’s Center of Northwest Indiana can test and treat women for Chlamydia and Gonorrhea (certain criteria apply).
