Sexually transmitted infections may be referred to as either an STD (sexually transmitted disease) or an STI (sexually transmitting infection).
STDs are infections that can be passed from person to person during sexual activity. Sexual activity may include vaginal, anal, or oral sex or simply intimate skin-to-skin contact where body fluids are present.
You can have an STD without any symptoms. Up to 75% of people with an STD have no symptoms and don’t know they are infected!
There are currently more than 25 infections that are transmitted during sexual activity, including HIV, chlamydia, gonorrhea, syphilis, herpes, genital warts, and many others.

We provide a friendly, comfortable, and nonjudgmental environment to help you remain sexually healthy, and you do not need to be a resident of Salt Lake County to visit our clinic.
