Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), also known as sexually transmitted infections or STIs, are very common. According to the Centers for Disease Control, (CDC), one in two sexually active persons will contract an STI by age 25. The CDC estimates that nearly 20 million new STIs occur every year in this country, half of those among young people aged 15–24. Infection rates for STD’s for have significantly increased among older Americans as well.
STDs don’t always cause symptoms or may only cause mild symptoms, so it is possible to have an infection and not know it. CDC estimates that undiagnosed STIs cause 24,000 women to become infertile each year. That is why it is important to get tested if you are having sex.
Express Care Lab recognizes the importance of early detection and treatment of STDs to prevent complications and the spread of the disease.
