The CDC recommends that most sexually active adults, particularly women under the age of 25, should get STI (a.k.a STD) tested at least once per year, even when practicing safer sex. For others, testing frequency depends on sexual behaviors and may be recommended more frequently. If you ever think you've been exposed to an STI or if you are experiencing symptoms, we urge you to seek in-person medical care right away.
