Chlamydia and Gonorrhea are the two most common reportable STIs in Northwestern Ontario. They are bacterial infections that are spread through unprotected sex with an infected partner. Most people will have no signs or symptoms, but when left untreated these STIs can cause serious health effects.
Testing is easy. A simple urine test can give a person their result in a matter of days. These infections are also treatable with antibiotics that are offered free from the Sexual Health Clinic.
