What do you do if you
 think you have an STI?

Great question!  Make an appointment to visit your doctor as soon as possible. If you are experiencing symptoms (like sores, bumps, itching, burning, or a change in discharge) be sure to tell the person on the phone. This will help the office set aside enough time to see you.

In the meantime, it’s a good idea to abstain from sex until you know for sure.  Get plenty of sleep, drink lots of water, and eat a balanced diet.  Help your body stay as healthy as possible! And try not to worry. Seeing a doctor is a great way to find out for sure. You’ll have the chance to ask lots of questions and get any treatment you need.

To make an appointment at Teen Clinic, give us a call the day before you’d like to come in.  All services are either free or low-cost to those under 20.
