Sexually Transmitted Diseases Testing

Sexually Transmitted Disease

Most STDs produce little to no symptoms. With 19 million new STD cases, every year it is better to be safe than sorry. To note, condoms do not protect against all STDs. For example, Herpes. Herpes is passed through direct contact with an infected area. Herpes is like a silent STD simply because most people do not know they have the virus.

Did you know most labs will not test for Herpes unless you request it?

Even after being diagnosed with Herpes it is hard for people to pinpoint when they are having an outbreak and actively shedding (when the virus is active). Hence the reason it is the most common STD any sexually active person can get and the CDC stands by that.
