It is very important to know if you have STD before having sex with another partner. There many different types of STDs. Everyone, men and women who are sexually active must get tested for STDs regularly
. Some STD’s don’t show any signs or symptoms. Condoms will save from getting infected with many conditions, such as HIV/AIDS, chlamydia, gonorrhea and others. Infections like chlamydia or genital herpes may travel during unprotected oral sex as well.
For example chlamydia in women destroys tubes and sooner it is treated, more chances woman has to be able to have children in the future.
When HIV remains untreated, individual will develop AIDS a lot faster. AIDS destroys immune system CD4 cells and longer individual waits for treatment, more CD4 cells will be destroyed and faster individual’s HIV will develop in to AIDS.
Routine STD test
involves finding local clinic that test for the particular STD. We have many local STD clinics’ that test for all of the STD conditions.
Women must get at least pap smear test done once a year. Pap procedure is done by the gynecologist and it helps with determining if woman is infected with HPV. Gynecologist may also see symptoms of other conditions (if any), but you must remember that some of the STDs show no symptoms or signs and it’s very important to get STD test done routinely.
For gay men annual STD test for HIV
and other infections is unavoidable
, especially if sexually active with more than just one partner or your partner is sexually active with others. It takes only ones to get infected with STD and pass it on to others. Using condom is very important, but if it’s not “on top of the list”, STD testing
must be done before having sex with new partner. Please keep in mind that the most common STD for gay men is HIV and the only way to detect HIV is after 23 days from getting infected with it. HIV may still be passed from one to another before 23 days period. Only being careful about it may save someone else from getting infected with HIV.
If you see something unusual, such as some type of sores around your genital area or some type of fluid discharge from your penis or vagina or if you feel burning sensation during urination – you have STD and you need to get STD test done immediately.
Gonorrhea and Chlamydia test is vital for the sexually active girls who are under 25 or gay men having sex with other men. All we need is urine sample and our lab healthcare professionals will test it for presence of STD antibodies.
