STD Evaluation

STD EVALUATION

STD evaluation encompasses screening for all common sexually transmitted diseases such as chlamydia, gonorrhea, herpes, HIV, and trichomonas.

The Y Factor also screens for genital warts or condyloma which may carry the human papilloma virus. This condition presents as visible lesions or bumps on the genital area. These lesions transmit the virus and cause the risk of transmission to sexual partners. This virus is a contributing factor for cervical cancer in women.

STD Evaluation | Frequently Asked Questions

STD is a disease that spreads by sexual contact such as vaginal intercourse, anal intercourse, oral sex and even direct skin-to-skin contact.

Testing is done with a combination of blood, skin test, and urine tests. A physical exam of the genitalia is also needed to look for any suspicious lesions that may be a result of an STD.

There are actually STDs that cause no signs or symptoms at all. Some of the symptoms might be so mild that you would not even notice it. Some of the more common or obvious symptoms may include: abnormal discharge that may be white or yellowish-green, unknown rash, genital pain, burning or pain during urination, urinating frequently, and abnormal bumps, sores, and warts or lesions in the genital area.

Some STDs can be treated or cured, but there are also some that are life-long and require long term treatment or management.

You can protect yourself by using condoms, having fewer sexual partners, avoidance of alcohol and/or drugs with sex which can affect your awareness, and judgement.

No, condoms do not protect from viral STDs that are transmitted through bodily fluids or spread by skin-to-skin contact outside of the condom. Also, condoms can sometimes break and expose you to infected fluids.

If you are sexually active with multiple partners, it would be good practice to get tested about every six months to a year. If you have a new partner, it is best to be tested before sexual activity and 3-4 months after.

There is no evidence that proves that STD can be transmitted by touching a toilet.
