Breaking the taboo of getting tested for sexually transmitted diseases - that's the goal for Planned Parenthood of the North Country New York.
In honor of National Condom Week, all of their clinics will offer free STD and HIV testing.
Those with Planned Parenthood hope to get more people comfortable talking about safer sex.
"Getting comfortable talking with your partner about STDs and getting tested are all important parts of having a safe, empowered sex life. STD testing is generally very simple, quick and it's completely confidential," said Katie Ramus of Planned Parenthood.
The free testing is offered through this Thursday.
There are health centers in Watertown, Lowville, Canton and Ogdensburg.
