April is Planned Parenthood and MTVs Get Yourself Tested Month! How will you remind yourself to get tested?
Getting tested for STDs is easy, quick, and painless.  Chlamydia and Gonorrhea are tested for with a simple urine test and HIV can be tested for with just a drop of blood from the finger. If someone is sexually active, they should get tested for STDs every 6 months, or before they have sex with a new partner.
