STI and HIV testing
Untreated sexually transmitted infections (STIs) can cause reproductive system damage and be life threatening, but many don’t have immediate symptoms.
If you’re sexually active, get tested at least once per year. It’s also a good idea to get tested with every new partner, if you had unprotected sex, if you had protected sex but the condom broke, if you had sex with someone who had an STI, or if you or a partner do have symptoms.
Talk with your health care provider for testing recommendations more specific to your circumstances. Schedule a medical care appointment to discuss STI testing available on campus.
If your test result is positive, you can find advice for how to talk to a partner about your results on the healthy sexual decision-making module in Canvas (login required).
Over-the-counter home pregnancy tests are available at Mizzou Pharmacy and other retail outlets. Schedule a medical care appointment to discuss pregnancy testing options on campus.
