About Us

Most STDs are preventable with the appropriate precautions and curable if caught early. This is behind the core of our mission — help stop the spread of STDs. We approach this two ways: One, we provide in-depth STD resources and guides to empower people with information for a safe and healthy sex life. Two, we advocate for annual STD testing for those who are sexually active, and more frequently for those with certain risk factors, by connecting people with inexpensive and private testing centers in their area.

OUR MISSION

Inform

Our in-depth STD resources are intended to educate on the risks, symptoms, and prevention for the most common STDs. We also provide a detailed breakdown of how each disease is tested for and any treatment options available. We believe that with the right information to take the proper precautions people can decrease their risk of contracting an STD.

Advocate

All sexually active adults should know their STD status, and the only way to know for sure is to get routinely tested. We connect people with STD testing facilities in their area that are both affordable and private, so there’s no excuse not to get tested. With early detection, most STDs are easily curable with no long-term complications.
