Any time you are sexually active, especially with more than one partner, it is important that you are tested for STDs every six months. If you have already begun experiencing symptoms of an STD, you should take advantage of clinics that have same day STD testing. This gives you the answers you need quickly, and allows you to begin treatment for the disease.
STDs are Highly Contagious
Any time you have unprotected sexual contact, you are risking exposure to a disease. In New York City, the prevalence of these diseases is high. It has been concluded that one out of two people will be infected with one of the common sexually transmitted diseases at some point in their life. This means that your odds of contracting one doubles with every sexual partner you have.
Knowledge Stops the Spreading of the Disease
Finding out that you have an STD and talking to your partners is the most effective way of stopping the spread of disease. The faster you are diagnosed, the fewer people will be infected. Going to an STD clinic in Manhattan that can give you the results of your test that same day means you will have the knowledge you need to keep from infecting more people. Depending on how many partners you may have had between being exposed and being diagnosed, you could be saving many people from the disease.
