Do you know your STBBI status? If not, GET TESTED.
1. If testing for one STBBI, test for all. (HIV, Syphilis, Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, Hepatitis B and if indicated, Hepatitis C too!).
2. All of the STBBI’s have phases with no symptoms.
3. Do not wait for symptoms to test.
For more information about STBBI's and where to get tested contact your local Public Health Office.
