STD tests are usually quite accurate and rarely give a false negative. False results may occur from home tests where users do not correctly administer the test. Contact your local health center or physician immediately if you suspect you received a false result.
What Is An STD?
An STD stands for Sexually Transmitted Disease, an infection caused by a virus, bacteria, or parasite. These diseases can significantly harm your health, especially as more time passes.
Often, these infections have silent symptoms, leaving those infected to believe they are STD-free. Unfortunately, just because there are no manifestations does not mean you do not have a sexually transmitted disease.
It’s essential for your health and the health of others to receive testing and proper treatment if you’re at risk. Don’t wait to get the care you need.
How Does My STD Affect Others?
Others are at risk of contracting an STD when they’ve been exposed to the pathogen. Depending on the type of disease present, these infections can be passed from person to person during contact, even if only exposed for a short time.
Most times, bodily fluids carry these pathogens. Those at risk of contracting an STD include but are not limited to:
- Those who participate in unprotected sex.
- Those who have sexual contact with multiple partners.
- Those who have a history of STIs.
- Those forced to engage in sexual activity.
- Those who inject drugs.
Additionally, pregnancy does not protect you against STDs, and infected women may pass their infections on to their child.
