Student Health Services provides numerous opportunities for STI testing for Oregon State University students.
Who Should Get Tested
Anyone who is sexually active should think about testing for sexually transmitted infections. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends routine HIV testing. The CDC recommends annual chlamydia and gonorrhea for sexually active women under the age of 25 and recommends syphilis and chlamydia testing for sexually active men who have sex with men (MSM).
There is an interval between a potential sexual exposure and when testing will be accurate. If you take a test too soon you may not get an accurate result. Your provider will be able to recommend when to be screened.
If you have symptoms or more questions about STI’s, you can make an appointment with a clinician at Student Health Services. Call 541-737-9355 to make an appointment.
A full list of screening recommendations can be found here.
