Many people avoid regular STD testing because they are embarrassed or fear what the results will be. This sentiment is very understandable given the deeply personal nature of sexually transmitted diseases.However, avoiding or delaying testing is misplaced. You are not only risking your health but the health of your partner. In many cases, someone is infected with an STD from their partner, and neither one knew the other was infected in the first place. Regular testing not only keeps you in pristine sexual health but also protects your partner as well.
Regular testing is also important because many sexually transmitted diseases do not show symptoms until they are in their advanced stages. When they are at this stage, they are increasingly more difficult and more expensive to treat. Untreated STD’s can lead to severe complications. Depending on the exact infection, you can expect to see discomfort in the genital area, infertility, complications when pregnant, pelvic inflammatory disease, and you are much more susceptible to cancers in the reproductive system. If caught early, many sexually transmitted diseases are easily treated with a simple prescription.
Some of the sexually transmitted diseases we can test for include:
- HIV & AIDS
- Genital Warts
When you visit our facility, you will meet with our doctor one on one to discuss your concerns regarding a sexually transmitted disease. Depending on the circumstances, our doctor may want to perform a physical exam to look for any symptoms on your body. After that, samples will be collected for testing. These samples can include urine, blood, or a swab from your genitals. Some of our tests will return rapid results, but some may require several days to process. Our doctors will review with you the results of any tests and you will be sent home with copies tests results as well. We can forward these results to your primary care doctor upon request.
