What Is the Difference Between an STI and an STD?

The difference between STDs and STIs is mainly in the name. STIs are infections contracted during sexual contact and are caused by viruses, parasites, or bacteria. While many people contract STIs and never experience symptoms (the reason it’s so important to be tested regularly), when one does have symptoms, it’s referred to as a sexually transmitted disease (STD). It’s preferable to use STI, as it encompasses most cases, and the term “disease” can perpetuate stigma.

STI Screenings for Common Conditions

It’s vital for all sexually active people to receive regular STI testing to stay healthy and safe in their sexual lifestyles. It is recommended that people with one partner be tested annually and those with multiple partners be tested every 3-6 months. It’s essential to be tested immediately if you think you’ve been exposed to an STI.  

We test for the following STIs:

  • Gonorrhea  
  • Chlamydia  
  • Genital herpes
  • Trichomoniasis  
  • Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)  
  • Syphilis

What You Can Expect at Your Appointment

When you visit us for STI testing, we will ask about your health concerns, symptoms, sexual history, and overall health history. After taking this information, we will proceed with testing, which may require urine, blood, or swab samples. These tests are generally quick and painless, and you will usually receive results that same day.

Once we get your results, our medical team will discuss the next steps. If you test positive for an STI, we will build a treatment plan to resolve your condition and, if necessary, guidance for informing your partners. You can schedule a follow-up visit with us or share your results with your primary care.

"We have a special needs daughter who needed her foot looked at. Thankful that Affinity accepted her Medicaid first of all. Staff was nice, did not have a long wait, doctor was knowledgeable and understanding with our daughter, which means a lot. She was able to get x-rays done on her foot and received the results before we left. A great place to go on short notice."

"The Affinity care clinic in Galveston was wonderful. I walked in Memorial Day (without an appointment) and was seen by a very courteous and helpful staff. I highly recommend them."
