If you believe that you may have a sexually transmitted disease, it's important to know that STDs are actually quite common. You are certainly not alone. It's estimated that more than half of all people will contract a sexually transmitted disease at some point in their lifetime. While diseases such as chlamydia, gonorrhea, hepatitis, herpes, syphilis and HIV are far too common, the consequences can be serious, so you should be tested as quickly as possible if you believe you may have been exposed. Many STDs are asymptomatic. You may not even know you were exposed until after a sexual encounter takes place, and you may not even know what specific STD you were exposed to.
Health Testing Centers offers two convenient STD testing panels in Beaumont. 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.
Gonorrhea: If left untreated, gonorrhea often progresses into pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) in women. PID is one of the leading causes of infertility. In men, gonorrhea can develop into a painful inflammation of the scrotal lining called epididymitis.
Chlamydia: Every year, approximately one million people are diagnosed with the disease and treated. Public health officials believe that just as many individuals, if not more, go untreated because the disease does not produce dramatic symptoms.
Herpes (HSV1 and HSV2): A very common virus that has no cure. Herpes is spread through sexually contact where bodily fluids are exchanged.
Syphilis: Antibiotics can halt the progression of syphilis if treatment is provided early in the disease course, but they can't reverse damage to the body that's already occurred. That's why it's particularly important to get tested and treated for syphilis as soon as you suspect you may have been exposed.
HIV: HIV is a blood born virus that can be contracted by both men and women during vaginal, oral and anal sex.
Hepatitis B / C: viral infections with mild symptoms that is transmitted commonly through sexual intercourse.
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 Beaumont, TX. The data suggests that syphilis rates in Beaumont 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 Beaumont, TX. 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.
