Information for Newport News about STD Screening

If you even suspect you have been exposed to an STD, you need to have that infection confirmed so that you can start receiving treatment if you need it. Untreated STDs can have serious long term consequences that include pelvic inflammatory disease and permanent damage to the heart, brain and nervous system. Untreated HIV progresses to AIDS, a disease that's almost invariably fatal. Fortunately, Health Testing Centers (Health Testing Centers) offers discreet, cost-effective testing in Newport News for a variety of STDs including HIV, chlamydia, gonorrhea, hepatitis B and C, herpes simplex virus (I/II, IgG), syphilis.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimate that 19 million people are infected with sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) every year. Young people under 25 years of age account for over 50 percent of those cases. You may be surprised to discover, though, that STDs are becoming a serious health threat in other age groups as well, especially among sexually active seniors.

STD Testing Panel Level ll includes the following tests:

Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, HIV, Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, Herpes Simplex Virus (I/II, IgG), Syphilis. Health Testing Centers also provides reliable early exposure HIV testing that can ensure infected individuals begin treatment as early as possible. Many people infected with the HIV virus are able to live productive lives that are nearly symptom-free through the regular use of medication. The sooner an infected individual begins treatment, the better his or her chances for stabilizing the virus so that it doesn't escalate into AIDS.

There is certainly no reason to feel alone, but it is completely understandable if you wish to keep the matter private. Our confidential STD tests allow you to do just that. Stop worrying and put your mind at ease today by contacting one of our medical professionals.

Sexually Transmitted Infection Stats for Newport News

Although rates of both syphilis and gonorrhea are low in terms of percentage of the overall Newport News, VA population, they illustrate a stubborn degree of stability in the number of cases. When antibiotics first came on the scene, scientists hoped that both of these sexually transmitted diseases would be totally eradicated in just a few decades. Yet, they persist in Newport News, in VA and nationwide. Newport News's skyrocketing Chlamydia rates echo a state and national trend. Although the CDC speculates that some of the reason for this is due to better screening, they contend that higher infection rates are also to blame. Nationally, Chlamydia rates are three times higher in women than men and eight times higher for African-Americans than for whites. When it comes to other forms of sexually transmitted diseases, Newport News mirrors the national data. Women are almost twice as likely to be diagnosed with herpes. New diagnoses of HIV-AIDS remain very low, although males are still more likely to contract this condition. In addition, acute hepatitis (hepatitis A, hepatitis B, and hepatitis C), has only been diagnosed in a handful of Newport News residents in the past few years.
