Sexually transmitted diseases are a serious problem in the United States of America. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) estimates that more than 19 million people are infected with these diseases every year, with many of them having no knowledge of the infection.
This is why it is so important to protect yourself from contracting a disease by arming yourself with the knowledge of how to prevent transmission and how to recognize common symptoms. Getting tested regularly is the only truly effective way to determine whether or not you have a sexually transmitted disease. We recommend getting checked annually. Many of the most common STDs do not cause any symptoms at all. You cannot rely on the presence of symptoms in order to determine whether or not you have a sexually transmitted disease. Undergoing a screening is the only way to know for sure whether you are infected or not.
By getting tested regularly, you can promptly identify any hidden diseases that you may be unknowingly infected with. This prevents the diseases from becoming chronic and causing sometimes serious complications for your health and wellbeing, including infertility, Pelvic Inflammatory Disorder (PID), and organ damage. Some of these complications are reversible, and some are not. Why put your health at risk? Protect yourself by getting checked for sexually transmitted diseases regularly. Our mission is to provide confidential, affordable, and convenient STD testing services to our patients and to simultaneously provide information to help facilitate education about these extremely common diseases. This guide is designed to help individuals identify possible symptoms of common diseases and determine if it is necessary to undergo testing immediately to identify the cause of symptoms.
