What is an STI? It is a sexually transmitted infection that is passed during sex. Most STI’s are spread during anal, oral sex, vaginal sex. Some STI’s, like HIV, are spread by contact with infected blood. STI germs need to live in warm, moist areas and that is why they infect the mouth, rectum, penis and vagina. An STI will not just go away by itself. Many STI’s can be cured, but ALL STI’s need to be treated. The Wichita Falls Wichita County Public Health District offers confidential testing at a very reasonable fee. Most treatments are included in the fee.
If you feel you may have an STI and need treatment call 940-761-7841 to schedule an appointment.
