Information for Vincennes about STD Screening

The U.S. including Vincennes is still, in many respects, a sexually conservative culture. Take the subject of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). STDs are so common that public health officials estimate that half of all sexually active young adults will have contracted at least one by the time he or she is 25. One out of every four women has type 2 genital herpes, and approximately 60 to 90 percent of all sexually active young people may be harboring the type 1 genital herpes virus.

Nonetheless, it can be overwhelmingly embarrassing to admit to anyone you know that you think you may have been exposed to an STD. That includes talking to your family physician.

Other people tend to make rush judgments about those who've been diagnosed with an STD. Although it only takes having sex one time with a single infected individual to contract an STD, future health care providers reviewing your records may make assumptions about your lifestyle choices that are unwarranted.

Health Testing Centers offers two convenient STD testing panels in Vincennes. STD Testing Panel Level 1 tests your blood for the presence of HIV, hepatitis B, herpes simplex virus (I/II, IgG) and syphilis, while STD Testing Panel Level 2 checks your blood for residual evidence of Chlamydia gonorrhea, HIV, hepatitis B and C, herpes simplex virus (I/II, IgG) and syphilis exposure.

Since early HIV infection and many STDs have no symptoms, getting an STD test early is ideal. With early detection, those infected can begin receiving treatments immediately, limiting viral dissemination throughout the organs and body and reducing long-term damage. For HIV, early detection and treatment improves the long-term effects of the condition. For STDs, early treatment of the infection increases the rate of recovery from curable STDs and the reduction of severe symptoms of other STDs. Untreated STDs can cause sterility in both men and women, and women can experience further consequences of untreated STDs such as infertility, ectopic pregnancies, pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) and cervical cancer. Certain STDs can also cause health issues for newborn babies.

Sexually Transmitted Infection Stats for Vincennes

The number of infections in the United States has increased to 19 million in recent history. Though most instances occur in people between the ages of 15 and 24, the implications are still alarming particularly for local communities such as Vincennes, IN. The data suggests that syphilis rates in Vincennes have decreased markedly with the adoption of medical interventions. Syphilis was once an incurable disease that was directly linked to birth defects, heart difficulties, neurological problems, blindness, mental illness and even death. New cases of gonorrhea are also on the rise in Vincennes, IN. Gonorrhea is rarely transmitted through oral sex, but it can be passed through vaginal or anal sex. It can also be transmitted through pregnancy. Acute cases of all types of hepatitis remain consistently low in the CTIY population over the past five years. As is the case with Chlamydia, however, hepatitis often has few or no discernible symptoms. This underscores the importance of ongoing public education and testing for high risk groups, including men having sex with men and intravenous drug users.
