What is an STD/STI?
STD is an acronym for Sexually Transmitted Disease. It is also commonly referred to as an STI, or Sexually Transmitted Infection. STDs can be contracted and transferred from person to person during any sexual intercourse, including vaginal, anal, and oral intercourse.
Who should be tested?
Nobody is immune to contracting an STD, so if you are sexually active, it is very important that you be tested. Not all STDs produce symptoms, so you could be a carrier and not show any signs of it. If you are sexually active, call us today at 1-888-211-2365 to begin your testing process today and avoid any future complication.
Are symptoms the same for all STDs?
No, there are a broad range of symptoms for various STDs. Some are even asymptomatic, meaning they show no symptoms, while others will produce symptoms in as early as a few weeks after contraction. Asymptomatic STDs are still able to be transferred to other people and can cause problems later. Even more, you may miss the treatment window and have a harder time dealing with that STD in the future. Some common symptoms are body sores, a burning sensation while urinating, discharge from the penis or vagina, and darker than normal urine. If you are sexually active, get tested to make sure you are not a carrier and gain some peace of min
Can I get an STD from oral intercourse?
Yes, STD transmission is not limited to vaginal sex. It can be transferred from oral, anal, and vaginal intercourse.
What type of sample does the test require?
The fluid sample required varies for each STD. For some, it is a urine sample. These STDs include chlamydia and gonorrhea. A blood test is required to determine if other STDs are present in the body. These include Hepatitis B/Hepatitis C, herpes, HIV, and syphilis. No matter the type of sample required, the testing procedure is quick and simple for you.
