STDs

STD's are typically transmitted through contact (usually of a sexual/intimate nature), with an infected person or object (ie. needles). Student Health can test you for commonly contracted STD's such as: Gonorrhea, Chlamydia, Syphillis and Herpes. Each test has a different fee so contact us for more information.

SCAN and STCADA are now performing free STD and HIV testing on campus twice a month. Click here for detailed information.

Condom Safety

ONLY 93% of condoms used are effective in pregnancy or STD's
Condoms expire…CHECK THE DATE!
Store them away from direct sunlight or heat.                                                                         Never re-use a condom.

  • Usual places that condoms are kept that may result in failure:

    • Glove compartment

    • Wallet (males)

    • It deteriorates quickly because of body temp (98.6 degrees).

    • Purse

  • It protects against transmission of STD's only on the parts it covers.

  • Natural skin condoms DO NOT protect against the transmission of viruses. Latex is the preferred condom material, however some people may be allergic to latex.

  • If a small space is not left at the tip, it is more likely to rupture.

  • Condoms with spermicide have been shown to increase the risk of vaginal infection.

  • Water based lubricants, instead of oil-based, are best!

  • Latex is weakened if it comes into contact with oil based products such as lotion.

  • At least 50 million people in the U.S. have genital herpes. The majority are undiagnosed. The virus is spread even when ulcers/liaisons are not present.

  • Syphilis can bore through intact skin.

  • Chlamydia is the most frequently reported infectious disease. It occurs the most in people 25 and under.

  • Gonorrhea is the 2nd leading reported STD.

  • Annual screenings for sexually active women is recommended.
