- To Protect Your Health Just like regular visits to your primary care physician can help prevent common health issues, regular STD testing can prevent sexual health issues. Your sexual organs are important parts of your body! If you don’t practice the same preventative care there that you do on the rest of your body, you’re putting your health at risk.
- STDs Are Treatable And in some cases, curable. The sooner you visit STD testing centers and have the procedures done, the sooner you can receive treatment if your results are positive. And remember: not all medical visits include STD testing, so make sure you ask your doctor to perform the tests.
- STDs Often Don’t Have Visible Symptoms More often than not, you can’t tell if you have an STD just by looking into the mirror. In fact, 75-90% of women who have chlamydia have zero symptoms. The only way you can be certain you don’t have an STD is to be tested regularly.
- STD Testing Procedures Are Quick and Simple It’s not a huge production to get tested for STDs. Some exams require a small amount of blood and others require a simple urine sample or oral swab. Wait times at the ER have increased from 46.5 minutes to 58.1 minutes, but some at home STD testing kits can yield results in as little as 20 minutes.
