Do I Need STD Testing?
If you are sexually active, you should receive an STD test on a routine basis to ensure the health of you and your partner. This is because STDs are on the rise in the United States, with almost 20 million new cases recorded every year according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Furthermore, many STDs don’t cause obvious symptoms in their initial stages, or ever.
Some people with STDs do experience noticeable symptoms, however. A few of the most common include:
- Swelling, redness, bumps, blisters, warts, or rashes around the genital area
- Painful urination
- Abnormal discharge or bleeding
- Jaundice (yellowing of the skin or eyes)
- Flu-like symptoms, including fever, aches, and chills
- Pain during sex
