No one ever thinks they will be one to contract a sexually transmitted disease (STD). If you’re having sex with multiple partners or with a partner who hasn’t been tested, you’re at risk of contracting an STD.
Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) — or sexually transmitted infections (STIs) — are typically passed by any form of sexual contact. STDs are passed through bacteria, viruses, or parasites that pass from person to person in blood, semen, or vaginal and other bodily fluids.
Here are three reasons to take advantage of free STD testing at our center.
1. Prevent Pregnancy Complications
If you are pregnant, it’s essential to determine whether you have contracted an STD or not. These diseases or infections can pass from mothers to their infants during pregnancy or childbirth. In infants, pregnancy complications from STD/STIs can cause serious health problems and even death.
To prevent serious complications from STD/STI transmission during pregnancy, confirm whether you have an STD/STI with our free STD testing service.
2. You May Not Have Symptoms
While some women may experience significant symptoms due to STD/STIs, they can be present without any noticeable symptoms or signs. You may have an infection or disease without knowing it, and you could unintentionally be infecting your partners through sexual contact. Get tested to be sure.
