Sexually transmitted infections (STIs) are super-common: One in two sexually active people will contract an STI by age 25. But many people who are at risk don’t get tested as much as they should, or at all, which means they don’t know their status and may be going untreated and infecting their partners. To understand what’s up with people not getting tested, we partnered with DKC Analytics and surveyed 1000 Americans about their attitudes and actions when it comes to STIs.
The statistics tell a disturbing story: While the vast majority of adults believe in the importance of preventing STIs, most do not follow their own advice. We created a visual snapshot of the issues surrounding the American STI epidemic. Educate yourself on the issue, and if you need to check yourself for STIs learn about home STI testing with Nurx.
