STD Testing for Teens: Protect Your Child's Health

  • What is STD testing? It's the process of checking for sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), infections spread through sexual contact.
  • Why is it important? Many STDs have no symptoms, especially early on. Untreated STDs can cause serious health problems, including infertility and chronic conditions.
