While ASTDA is unable to offer direct clinical support for persons diagnosed with a sexually transmitted infection (STI), we are providing links to sites that offer clinically relevant STI information.
The goal of these sites is to provide general clinical information. They should not replace a personalized medical evaluation with a licensed healthcare practitioner.
We hope you find these sites useful.
- For resources and information about sexual health that is reliable, science-based, and stigma-free, please visit the American Sexual Health Association’s (ASHA) website. ASHA provides additional external links for persons interested in learning more about specific topics related to adolescents/teens, LGBTQ+ health, HIV/AIDS, reproductive rights and justice, sexual assault and advocacy, sexual and reproductive health, and vaccines. ASHA also sponsors a forum for questions about STIs answered by experts.
- The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) STI website offers updated detailed information about the most common STIs, including a series of STI Fact Sheets.
- For persons interested in information on substance use disorders and mental health information, the link for the U.S. Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration may be helpful: 800-662-HELP (4357)
