Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs)

We recommend that sexually active individuals be tested for sexually transmitted infections annually, or anytime there is a new partner. It is not uncommon to have an STI and show no symptoms. Thielen has STI tests to screen for any sexually transmitted disease.

For detailed information on signs, symptoms and treatments for all STIs, visit the Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s Sexually Transmitted Disease page.
