Hi, it’s Barbie with another serious post. I’ve previously stressed the importance of HIV AIDS testing, and I wanted to be sure to clarify that I believe that testing for various STD’s can be just as important as HIV AIDS testing. A variety of STD’s including Gonorrhea, Syphilis, Herpes and Chlamydia are now on the rise. This is partially due to the failure of many sexually active people to get regular STD testing. Some falsely believe that there is no place near them to get a test, but you would be surprised at how many local STD testing facilities are around you no matter how small your town is. Some STD’s can lead to other serious conditions — including cancer. This makes it paramount that everyone with multiple partners get tested — regularly. Recent studies have shown that many among us — especially young people — do not get tested. In this arena, ignorance is not bliss. Without reliable information about your STD status, you are unable to take the necessary precautions to avoid spreading the disease to others.
Local STD testing is both convenient and relatively painless. Many are scared to find out their status and consequently put off getting tested. This is not a wise strategy. Some STD’s can be insidious and develop without symptoms. By the time the disease emerges it can already have caused adverse effects and possibly lead to other conditions. Catching and treating STD’s is important for your own health — and knowing your STD status is equally important for your partner’s health. Searching online for local STD testing is very easy — if you haven’t had a recent STD test get one today for me — please?
