What are Gonorrhea and Chlamydia?

Gonorrhea and chlamydia are sexually transmitted infections (STIs) passed through vaginal, anal, or oral sex. Consistent and correct use of condoms is a highly effective way to reduce your risk of infection.

For more information regarding gonorrhea, chlamydia, or other sexually transmitted infections, please visit the links below:

  • Gonorrhea and chlamydia are curable, however, both infections are on the rise in Michigan. The bacteria that causes gonorrhea has built resistance to many antibiotics that have been used to treat it in the past. Minimizing your risk of getting those infections again in the future is a must.

  • STI testing and treatment are readily available, and low cost, at various Southeast Michigan clinics listed in our clinic directory.

    You can even ask for the treatment of your sexual partners at clinics through expediated partner therapy (EPT).
