Sexual Health

 

Many STDs are spread because people don’t know they have them. South Central Los Angeles has some of the highest rates of chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis in the county. Men who have sex with men and women of color are at a particularly high risk of contracting those STDs.

 

Having open and honest conversations with your partners about STDs, using condoms and getting tested regularly are great ways to prevent the spread of STDs! SCFHC recommends that lesbian and bisexual women get tested yearly and men who have sex with men get tested every 3-6 months. We are happy to provide STD screenings for you in an environment that is respectful and confidential. Get tested regularly and stay safe!
