Getting tested for chlamydia and gonorrhea is a smart move because these two STDs have become a growing problem in Minnesota. In fact, infection rates have skyrocketed in recent years, particularly among youth and young adults.
Getting tested for these infections is also highly recommended because they are often asymptomatic, meaning you can them without having any normal symptoms such as vaginal discharge or painful urination. You could have one of these STDs without even knowing it. Getting tested is the best way to protect yourself.
STDs, including chlamydia and gonorrhea, are a common result of having multiple sexual partners – or even one partner, if he or she is infected. People who have had an STD and have been treated can get infected again if they have sex with an infected person. If you are sexually active with multiple partners or with a partner who has had multiple partners, it is important to get tested regularly for STDs. Even if you are practicing safer sex, you can still get an STD.
It is also important to get tested and treated for chlamydia and gonorrhea because if left untreated, they can cause long-term health problems including Pelvic Inflammatory Disease. Commonly known as PID, this condition can lead to pelvic pain and infertility. Having an STD such as chlamydia and gonorrhea also increases your risk for contracting HIV, the virus that leads to AIDS.
Sexually transmitted infection and disease is a growing problem, but it’s one you can avoid. It’s important to know the facts about STD so that you can avoid the associated health risks and emotional stress.
