STIs and HIV

Sexually transmitted infections (STIs) are infections you can get by having sex with someone who has an infection. These infections are usually passed from person to person through vaginal intercourse. They can also be passed through anal sex, oral sex, or skin-to-skin contact. STIs can be caused by viruses or bacteria. 

If you would like to be tested for STDs or HIV call the Oswego County Health Department at 315-349-3547.
