CDC estimates that there are approximately 19 million new cases of STDs each year in the United States, almost half of them among people ages 15 to 24. Many STDs do not have any symptoms, so many of those who are infected don't know it. The only way to know for sure is to get tested. To reduce the impact of STDs, it is important to increase knowledge about sexually transmitted infections and make STD testing a part of routine medical care. Because many STDs have no symptoms, those at risk need to get tested and find out if they are infected. So go get yourself tested and know your status!
