STI testing at Yale
Anyone who suspects that he or she might have the symptoms of an STI, or anyone who engages in any form of sexual activity should consider seeing a clinician for STI and HIV testing. STIs are detected by blood, urine or culture tests. STI tests are free to all Yale students, even those who have waived the Yale Health Hospitalization-Specialty Coverage. To schedule an appointment, call Student Health 203-432-0312 or Ob/Gyn 203-432-0222. Women under 30 should have an annual gynecological exam. Women older than 30 should have an exam every 1-2 years.
Where to get condoms on campus
Undergraduates: Condoms can be found in many College entryways, from Peer Health Educators and Freshman College Counselors.
Graduate Students: Condoms are located in the basement of the McDougal Center and from the Graduate Wellness Ambassadors.
*Condoms, latex-free condoms, lubricants, dental dams, and female condoms are all available at the Student Health Education Office at the Yale Health Center, 55 Lock Street. For pick-up hours, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sexual Harassment and Assault
- SHARE Center
- Acute Care:
Acute Care can provide medical treatment after a sexual assault. Along with tending to any injuries, they can offer emergency contraception and STI testing. They are not able to collect forensic evidence; for that, you will have to go to the Yale-New Haven Emergency Room. (If you call SHARE first, they can make sure the ER is ready for your arrival and will have a counselor accompany you.)
