How often should you be tested for an STI?

“How often should you be tested for S.T.D.’s? Can you be tested at family planning, and do you have to make an appoitment?”

A: “If you are not in a long-term mutually monogomous relationship with one other uninfected person, it is a good idea to be screened for sexually transmitted infections once a year. We do screen for STIs at Family Planning and appointments are required.”
