Information for Greenville about STD Screening

The U.S. including Greenville 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.

Our STD Panel I test is designed to look for several of the most common sexually transmitted diseases, such as HIV, syphilis, Hepatitis B, and Herpes. We also offer a STD Panel II test that includes gonorrhea, Chlamydia and Hepatitis C for a more comprehensive testing option.

A sexually transmitted disease (STD) is an infection passed from one person to another during sexual intercourse or intimate contact where fluids with the infectious organism are passed to the partner. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, nearly half of the 19 million new cases of STDs diagnosed in the U.S. every year occur in individuals between the ages of 15 and 24. The STD Recent Exposure test can detect the presence of most STDs soon after exposure and includes tests for both viral and bacterial STDs.
