Who is at risk for a sexually transmitted disease?

Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) are possible in anyone who has ever had unprotected sex, meaning sex without a male or female condom.

You may have only one partner, but if they have had multiple partners and don’t use protection, then you’re at risk. Some STDs can even be transferred via oral or anal sex.

Even if you have sex with someone who doesn’t have outward symptoms of a sexually transmitted disease, they can still be a carrier.

How can I stay safe from contracting an STD?

Condoms aren’t a guaranteed protection against STDs either, but they greatly reduce your risk. And if you aren’t in a committed, trusting, long-term relationship, it’s best to get tested regularly.

Before you stop using condoms in a relationship, both partners should also get tested to ensure good health.

What are the symptoms of an STD?

Many types of STDs exist and they all look a little different. Some symptoms that should raise concern include:

  • Painful urination
  • Abdominal pain
  • Genital discharge
  • Pain during sexual intercourse
  • Irregular periods
  • Painful bowel movements
  • Anal itching
  • Warts or lesions on the genitals

Some STDs, specifically HIV/AIDS and hepatitis, can cause whole-body symptoms, such as nausea, loss of appetite, fatigue, or joint pain.

What happens during STD testing?

No single comprehensive test checks for all STDs. Lifetime Primary Care review your symptoms, sexual history, and concerns to decide how to proceed with testing. You might undergo a:

  • Urine test
  • Blood test
  • Physical exam of your genitals
  • Cheek swab
  • Swab to collect cell samples from your vagina, cervix, or other pelvic organs

The doctors may also test any sores or blisters you have on your body to check their origin.

How are STDs treated?

Treatment for STDs depends on what you have. Antibiotics, rest, and abstinence are common treatments. Some serious STDs require long-term management with medication and full disclosure with future partners. The doctors educate you on how to deal with your particular infection and how to avoid future infection.

If you’re concerned about STDs, call one of the offices to get tested or book an appointment online.
