If you think you might have a sexually transmitted disease, it is important that you visit your doctor or clinic. The resources below may help answer your questions, but only a health care provider can diagnose and treat such infections.
The New Jersey Department of Health has a Sexually Transmitted Disease Program which provides:
- Technical support and consultation
- STD education
- Screening services
- Intervention and prevention
The link to this program is http://nj.gov/health/cd/stdhome.htm. You may also click onto “Links to Centers forDisease Control and Prevention, Division of STD Prevention” or go directly to http://www.cdc.gov/std. CDC provides national Hotlines in English, Spanish, and TTY for hearing impaired which provide anonymous, confidential information on STDs and how to prevent them. They also provide referrals to clinical and other services.
