What do I do if I have signs of an STI or am at risk for an STI?

If you have signs of an STI or think you are at risk for an STI, you should start treatment right away. Unfortunately, tests for STIs are not available in many places, may be expensive, and are not always accurate. The lack of low-cost, accurate testing for STIs is a major problem for women. It may lead to women taking medicines they do not need, cannot afford, and that cause side effects.
