Q: Why should I get tested for STI ?
Ans: Three reasons: health, safety and peace of mind. According to the Centers for Disease Control, around 19 million people will become infected with an STI this year. Many of these people won't even know it unless they experience symptoms. If you have an STI, getting tested can get you quickly connected to treatment and ongoing care, when appropriate. You'll be taking an important step to protect your sexual health and the health of your partners, too.
Q: Do I have to do full panel of STI testing or I can test for specific STI also?
Ans: Our Board certified physician will decide and customize the testing according to the sign and symptoms. And if any specialized test is recommended then it can be done along with regular STI testing.
Q: Can I get the same STI more than once ?
Ans: It's possible for example, you can be re–infected with chlamydia, gonorrhea or syphilis if you have unprotected sex with a partner who has the infection. If you are infected with an STI such as HIV or herpes, typically you will carry the virus for life. However, viral STIs can be managed successfully with ongoing treatment and care.
