My STD Symptoms
Sexually transmitted diseases, or STDs, are a serious risk for anyone engaging in sexual activity. While safe sex greatly reduces your risk of contracting an STD, there is no method that is 100% foolproof. This means that getting tested for STDs is important for anyone who is sexually active, no matter what type of sexual activity you are engaging in. At My STD Symptoms, we offer free, confidential counseling for those who believe they may have contracted an STD. After you speak to one of our counselors about the your concerns, we will be able to recommend a local facility that can provide you with STD testing services.
STD Symptoms And Information
While we typically refer to them as “STDs,” sexually transmitted diseases actually start out as sexually transmitted infections. These infections are frequently asymptomatic, which means that they do not show any signs or cause any symptoms. Sexually transmitted infections are passed between partners through sexual contact. However, most people refer to these infections as STDs whether they are showing signs of disease or not.
Because STDs often do not show any signs or symptoms, it is important to get tested if you believe that you may have contracted one. If you have contracted an STD and do not know about it, you are much more likely to pass that STD on to your sexual partners. Some STDs, such as hepatitis, can even be transmitted without sexual contact, while others are sexually transmitted only. In addition, many STDs have serious long-term consequences. While some STDs are easily treated and eradicated, others are incurable. Untreated STDs can do serious harm to your body, some even causing infertility.
Practicing safe sex by using condoms or other barrier methods will help protect you from contracting an STD, but these methods are not always 100% effective, especially if they are used incorrectly. Whether you have been having safe sex or not, if you believe that you could have contracted an STD or are showing any symptoms of an STD, it is important to get tested as soon as possible.
