Do You Know Your Status?
NEARLY 2.3 MILLION DIAGNOSED CASES OF STIS IN US IN 2017, ACCORDING TO CDC.
Could You Be Affected?
My Home Tests has partnered with kathy ireland® Worldwide to bring awareness of the availability of innovative, affordable and convenient at-home sexual health testing kits and help in taking an active part in reducing the spread of sexually transmitted infections.
While STIs affect individuals of all ages, young people between the ages of 15-24 account for nearly half of the 20 million new sexually transmitted infections that occur in the US each year according to CDC.
Gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men are disproportionately impacted by syphilis, HIV, and other STIs, according to CDC.
Women who are pregnant can become infected with STIs. Many STIs have no symptoms so you may not know if you are affected, according to CDC.
Are You Aware?
Knowing Your Status Is A Critical Step to Stopping STI Transmission, According To CDC.
If you know you are infected, you can take steps to protect yourself and your partners. Many STIs are diagnosable and treatable. We are on a mission with Kathy Ireland to spread the word, in her own words:
Please know your status. Easier access to infection testing is such an important need for our society, as early diagnosis often leads to early treatment, which can save one’s life and the lives of the people they love.
