Dane County – We´ve got a Problem – with STIs
And it Won´t go Away without Action

Madison WI – December 3, 2013 – Many people in Dane County might find it surprising that every year, we have over 2000 reported cases of sexually transmitted infections (STIs or STDs).   According to the CDC, a large number of cases are not counted because most people with STIs do not have symptoms and may not seek testing. One in two sexually active young people will get an STI by the age of 25. Most won't know it.

People can get tested at their regular clinic. Also PHMDC operates a clinic for Dane County residents to get STI testing and treatment. This walk-in clinic is free for all teens and free or low cost for any uninsured adults who live in Dane County. Dane County residents with Medical Assistance/Badger Care may also attend.

Untreated STIs can cause a number of problems ranging from the uncomfortable to the serious.   Untreated STIs can cause unnoticed and permanent damage to the reproductive tract and infertility. In women, they additionally may contribute to premature births or low birth weight babies.

If you think you may have been exposed to an STI, it is very important to get medical attention. 

The Public Health STI Clinic is located at
2705 E Washington Ave, Madison, above Hawthorne Branch Library.
Clinic hours are
Monday, noon – 3 pm
Wednesday, 3 pm – 6 pm
Friday, 9 am – noon    
                    No appointment is necessary.

For more information about the clinics or questions about STIs, call our confidential STI Line at (608) 243-0411.  You can also find additional information about local resources at

For more detailed information about STIs see the CDC´s web pages at
