The World Health Organization defines sexual health as a state of physical, mental and social well-being in relation to sexuality. It requires a positive and respectful approach to sexuality and sexual relationships, as well as the possibility of having pleasurable and safe sexual experiences, free of coercion, discrimination and violence.
Healthy sexuality is linked to emotional, social, cultural and physical aspects of wellness. It encompasses values, attitudes, feelings, interactions and behaviors. Those who have a good understanding and desire for sexual wellness will be more likely to approach sexual interactions and relationships in a consensual, respectful and informed way.

The sexual health assessment is a useful tool to assist you in determining how you can stay safe in your intimate relationships. The questionnaire takes less than 3 minutes to complete, and provides you with a score that determines your risk of sexually transmitted infection (STIs). Participation in this survey is completely anonymous.
ASU Health Services provides STI testing to students.
Sexually transmitted infections are infections that are passed from one partner to another during any form of sexual activity. Some infections have symptoms while others may not. If you are sexually active, it is recommended you get tested and know your status.
Testing can be scheduled with a provider to answer your questions and determine which tests best meet your needs or performed on a walk-in basis (without first meeting with a healthcare provider).
Walk-in testing is available at ASU Health Services locations for the following tests:
For more information on STI causes, symptoms, and treatment options, please visit the patient portal or contact ASU Health Services provider at 480-965-3349.
