Monkeypox, or mpox, is a disease that causes a rash and spreads through close contact in some communities.

Why should I get tested for STIs?
- The most common STI symptom is no symptom at all, so the only way to know your status is to get tested.
- Many STIs like gonorrhea, chlamydia, and syphilis are treatable and able to be cured, but if left untreated, these infections can cause serious health problems.
- Young people in Santa Clara County and nationwide are affected by STIs surprisingly more than you would expect.
The good news is that getting tested for STIs is one of the most important things you could do for your health, and our process is fast and easy at the Crane Center.
