Sexually Transmitted Infection (STI) Prevention

Take Control!
Use condoms
  • Correct and consistent use of latex male condoms is a highly effective way to prevent the spread of sexually transmitted infections and pregnancy.
  • Condoms should be used every time you have vaginal, anal, or oral sex
  • What if I have a latex allergy? Non-latex (polyurethane) condoms are available for purchase but are about eight times more likely to break or slip during sex than latex condoms. However, non-latex condoms were still 94% effective with perfect use.


  • Vaccines are a safe and effective way to prevent human papillomavirus (HPV) (link to HPV info page)
  • HPV vaccinations for children
    • The CDC recommends that children ages 11-12 receive two doses, 6 to 12 months apart. Vaccinations can be given as early as 9 years old, for early protection and before exposure to the virus.
  • Teens and Young Adults
  • Females through age 26 should receive the HPV vaccine
  • The CDC does not recommend the HPV vaccine for anyone over the age of 26, as it offers less benefit. Most people in this age group have already been exposed.
  • STI Vaccination on Base
  • Vaccinations available for HPV for active-duty members and dependents ages 9 to 45.
Mutual Monogamy: Being sexually active with only one partner who is only sexually active with you (mutual monogamy) and is STI-free is one of the most reliable ways to avoid infection. This can require open and honest communication as well as trust among partners.
Reduce your number of sex partners: Reducing the number of sex partners can decrease the risk of getting an STI. Even with fewer partners, regular testing is an important way to avoid the continued spread of STIs and/or to receive timely treatment, for both you and your partner.
Abstinence: The most reliable way to avoid STIs is to not have sex (vaginal, anal, or oral).

STI Testing  

Who should test?

Those with two or more risk factors:
  • You are sexually active
  • You are under the age of 25
  • You have multiple sex partners
  • You engage in high-risk sexual behaviors
  • Unprotected sex or share IV drug equipment
  • You have had an infection in the past
  • You have STI-like symptoms
 Other populations:
  • All adults and adolescents from ages 13 to 64 should be tested at least once for HIV.
  • Everyone who is pregnant should be tested for syphilis, HIV, hepatitis B and hepatitis C at the start of pregnancy. Those at risk should also be screened for chlamydia and gonorrhea.
  • Women ages 21 and older should receive routine Pap smears, to test for cervical cancers. In addition to a regular Pap smear, women ages 30 and older are screened for human papillomavirus (HPV), which can also cause cervical cancer.
How do I get tested?
