My partner and I have never had any other sexual partners. Are we protected?
I’ve been in a relationship for the past year. Is that long enough to not bother with a condom?
I’ve already had an STBBI. Am I protected for life?
In an immunocompetent person, lifetime protection can only be obtained for infections that can be prevented through successful vaccination (e.g., HPV or hepatitis A or B). Most other STBBIs (e.g., chlamydia, gonorrhea, syphilis, etc.) provide no subsequent immunity, enabling the possibility of reinfection.
For professional support, we’re here.
We provide a wide range of services related to HPV and other STBBIs. Test results for chlamydia, gonorrhea, syphilis, hepatitis B and HIV are available within 24 hours. A doctor's prescription is required.
