What are STDs?
STDs are infections that are passed from one person to another through sexual contact, and causes can include bacteria, viruses, or parasites. Some common STDs include chlamydia, gonorrhea, syphilis, herpes, and HIV. Symptoms of STDs can vary, but they may include discharge, sores or bumps, pain during sex, or a burning sensation when urinating, yet some people with STDs may not show any symptoms at all.
Why is STD testing important?
Getting tested for STDs is important for many reasons. First, it can help you maintain your health. Many STDs can cause long-term health problems if left untreated. Additionally, if you have an STD, it’s important to get treatment as soon as possible to prevent the spread of the infection to others. Finally, getting tested for STDs is an important part of responsible sexual health.
How often should I get tested?
The frequency with which you should get tested for STDs depends on some factors, including your age, sexual activity, and whether you’re in a monogamous relationship. Generally, if you’re sexually active, you should get tested for STDs at least once a year. If you have multiple sexual partners, you should get tested more frequently.
What to expect during an STD test?
STD testing is generally quick, easy, and painless. Depending on the type of test, you may need to provide a blood or urine sample, or have a swab taken from the affected area.
