Get Screened for STIs/STDs Today!
Sexually transmitted infections (STIs)—also commonly referred to as sexually transmitted diseases (STDs)—are spread via close, intimate contact and caused by viruses, bacteria, yeast and/or parasites. While some STIs present symptoms, others go entirely overlooked for years while silently causing damage within the body as carriers are unaware of their illness.
For these and many other reasons, ConvenientMD recommends regular STI/STD screening for patients who are sexually active.
There are over 20 commonly transmitted STIs/STDs, with the following being some of the more oft-seen illnesses:
STI/STD Screening: What to Expect
Because STIs/STDs can often be picked up via testing prior to symptoms developing, there’s no need to wait until you aren’t feeling good to get tested. Anyone who has ever had intercourse (especially unprotected) with another person should get checked. Since testing is not typically included in regular primary care visits, ConvenientMD recommends regular check-ups for those who remain sexually active.
Testing may include:
- Urine samples
- Blood samples
- Physical exam
- Overview of patient history
