Guard Your Sexual Health
If you are sexually active, you may be at risk of contracting sexually transmitted diseases or infections, (STDs or STIs). Despite what you may have heard from friends or from various media outlets, there is no birth control measure (including condoms) that is 100 percent effective in preventing the spread of STDs. That’s why it is so important to get tested for STDs if you are engaging in sexual contact.
In some cases, people who are infected with STDs or STIs do not show any symptoms at all. However, it is important to know that the absence of symptoms does not necessarily mean a person is not infected. Even without displaying symptoms, an STD/STI can still cause harm to the body and is still transmittable to a sexual partner. Regular testing is important to ensure optimal health. At Bella Women’s Center, we provide free limited testing and treatment for STD’s/STI’s. Call us today to learn more about this testing.
The Importance of STD Testing
Testing for STDs and STIs is the best way to detect infections early. If you can detect an STD early, you can greatly reduce the risk that it will cause permanent harm to your reproductive health. It is especially important to get tested for STDs while pregnant, as proceeding with either abortion or pregnancy in the presence of an STD or STI can carry negative consequences. At Bella Women’s Center, we provide limited testing for the most common STDs. Contact us today to learn more.
