What are STDs?
Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), also known as sexually transmitted infections or STIs, are very common. Millions of new infections occur every year in the United States. A recent report from CDC found that reported cases of chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis have increased for the sixth consecutive year – reaching a new, all-time high.
STDs don’t always cause symptoms or may only cause mild symptoms, so it is possible to have an infection and not know it. That is why it is important to get tested if you are having sex. If you are diagnosed with an STD, know that all can be treated with medicine and some can be cured entirely.
We can test for a variety of STDs including:
- Hep C
- Hep panel
- Herpes 1 & 2
- Bacterial vaginosis
- Candidiasis – Not an STD but an uncomfortable fungal infection in women. We can check for this as well as perform a pap smear for cervical cancer screening during a Women’s Health visit.
- HPV (human papillomavirus)
If you are sexually active, getting tested for STDs is one of the most important things you can do to protect your health. – CDC
