Of course, maybe you’re opting for a 10 panel test because you’ve developed some kinds of symptoms that you find to be troubling. Contracting an STD can be common when you have an active sex life. It’s not always a big deal, but it is important to know what you have so you can find the appropriate treatment. The 10 panel test is perfect for those who may have symptoms that could be associated with multiple STDs. It can be used to narrow down exactly what you may be experiencing, so you can get treated and move on with your life.
What Symptoms Should I Look For?
While STD symptoms vary by disease, there are a few that are most commonly experienced by those with sexually transmitted infections.
- No symptoms
- Blisters on or around penis or vagina
- Bumps, spots, or lesions on the penis or vagina
- Clear, white, or yellow discharge
- Discharge from the the penis or vagina (thick or thin)
- Painful urination
- Painful ejaculation
- Rash on the penis, testicles, or around the groin
- Itching on the tip of the penis or vagina
You may have noticed that one of the most common symptoms is having no symptoms at all. That is why it can be so important to get routinely tested. Ordering a 10 panel test is perfect for any of these symptoms – noticeable or not – because it can help reveal such a wide variety of STDs.
How Soon Should I Wait Before Getting Tested?
How long it takes for an STD to show up on a test can vary. Many STDs will show up on test results after 2 or 3 weeks from initial exposure; some can takes months! Your Care Counselor can answer any questions you may have about your exposure and when you should get tested.
At Priority STD Testing, we do offer Early Detection Herpes Testing, as well as Early Detection HIV Testing. These are separate tests from the 10 panel test, but can be useful for those who are more eager to get tested for these two STDs.
What Are The Benefits of a 10 Panel Test?
If you can get tested for specific STDs, what is the benefit of getting tested for all of them at once? There are a few reasons that it’s worth getting a 10 panel test over individual tests, detailed below.
If you think it’s possible that you have been exposed to one STD, it’s very possible that you’ve been exposed to several. Having an STD can often leave your body vulnerable, making it easier to contract others through open sores or a compromised immune system. Instead of getting tested again and again as symptoms begin to develop, it’s often easier to just get tested for all of the most common STDs in one visit.
Peace of Mind
If you’re uncertain which STDs you may have been exposed to, it can be nerve-racking. You’re sitting around waiting for symptoms to develop – and many STDs can show no symptoms at all! By getting a full 10 panel test, you can put your mind at ease and receive any treatment that might be necessary for a return to full health. The sooner you know your status on the most common STDs, the sooner you can relax.
While Priority STD Testing always strives to be an affordable option, it can no doubt become a costly endeavour to get tested for each of the 10 most common STDs separately. If you think you may have been exposed to a sexually transmitted disease, it can be the cheaper route to simply get tested for everything rather than risk needing to come back and get tested again and again. The 10 panel test is great, because it bundles all of the most important tests into one affordable package.
