Did you know? By the age of 25, 1 in 2 sexually active folks might snag an STI. Many won't have a clue. Don't be that statistic.

Let’s get real — testing for STIs, including HIV, is where it's at. It’s not just a smart choice; it’s essential self-care. So, why should you bump an STI check to the top of your to-do list? Because knowledge is your right and taking action is your strength.
