However, STD testing is also essential for all sexually active individuals. That's because STDs don't always come with obvious symptoms. Some may produce no symptoms at all, while others may present mild ones that are easily mistaken for a cold or flu. For this reason, ensuring your sexual and overall health means getting regular screening tests for common STDs. Just how often you should schedule test days depends on your individual circumstances. If in doubt, consult a healthcare professional for an appropriate testing routine for your needs.
