STDs/STIs affect men and women of all races, backgrounds, sexual orientations, and economic levels. Anyone who is having or has had vaginal, anal, or oral sex has some degree of risk for an STD/STI. In fact, some STDs/STIs can be passed through sexual play that does not involve intercourse.
You can analyze your risk for STDs/STIs with the STD Wizard—a free interactive online tool based on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC's) STD Treatment Guidelines. The STD Wizard recommends tests and vaccines based on your responses concerning some of your personal characteristics and behaviors. You can use these recommendations to start a discussion with your health care provider about your STD/STI risk and the tests you may need. The STD Wizard is available in both English and Spanish.
