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 Suwannee County has trained medical professionals to examine, diagnose and treat men and women with STD infections. Early diagnosis and treatment is important and decreases the risk for complications.

The 3T's to prevent the spread of STDs:  

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.
