Your sexual health is a critical component of your overall health, and many infections may not exhibit outward symptoms for you to determine something is wrong. The most effective way to stay aware of your sexually transmitted disease status is by undergoing periodic screenings and tests at AFC Urgent Care South Portland, so you can treat any internal symptoms as well as prevent the transmission of the infection to your partner. The majority of STDs do not have outward symptoms and can have long term effects on your body if left untreated for long periods of time.
Symptoms of STDs
Most STDs are spread through either sexual contact or contact with bodily fluids. Since many infections do not have symptoms, you could have an STD for quite some time without realizing it, so you could be transmitting it without even knowing. Periodic testing is recommended for anyone who is sexually active when switching partners, with multiple partners or at least every six to twelve months.
