Got a question? We’ve got answers!
How long have I had HPV? Did he give me genital herpes? What is trichomoniasis and how did I get it? How do I tell her I have herpes?
We get it, you have questions. So why not ask an organization that has 100 years of experience in talking about sexually transmitted infections (STI) and was among the the first to offer a STI helpline more than 35 years ago.
You can now speak with ASHA staff and get your questions answered by phone or chat with no wait. This is all possible through a new premium service offered by ASHA called Person2Person. Person2Person puts you in the driver seat on when you talk to our staff and for how long. Watch the video to the right to learn more about it.
This paid service enables you to bypass the long waits experienced on ASHA’s free STI helpline. The service is being offered at a price of only $20.00 for 20 minutes, phone or chat. If you need more than 20 minutes, no problem—simply purchase more time.

Meet Our Health Communication Specialists
“Just about all of us will get a sexually transmitted infection at some point in our lives. It’s totally normal. How we deal with it is what makes us sexually healthy. Give me a chance to talk through your questions about herpes, HPV or whatever is on your mind.”
Bella (Speaks English and Spanish)
“I enjoy providing individuals and families with sexual health information that enables them to have optimum sexual health. I’m excited to share my knowledge on this new service.”
“I have been employed with ASHA for over 20 years and have been responding to calls about STIs, including herpes and HPV, for most of that time. I’m proud of all of the people I’ve been able to help over the years and look forward to talking to many more.”
“Whether they know it or not (and most don’t), almost everyone who has sex will have a sexually transmitted infection at some point. That’s not a typo. Focusing primarily on HPV and herpes for 17 years, I know the value of plain-language and honest discussions.”
