Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs) are infections that you can get by having sex with someone who has an STD. You get an STD by having sex only one time with an infected partner. Many of the warning signs of an STD are not visible and you may not know your partner is infected.

The Florida Department of Health in Lafayette County has trained nurses and doctors to examine, diagnose and treat men and women with STD infections. Early diagnosis and treatment is important and decreases the risk for complications.

Talk:  Talk to your partner and your health care provider about risk factors, safer sex methods and testing.

Test:  Make an appointment for STD testing.

Treat:  Treat the disease and avoid additional health problems.

The most common symptoms of an STD are:

  • Genital Burning
  • Genital Itching
  • Genital Discharge

If you have these symptoms contact your health care provider right away for an evaluation.
