For those in San Antonio, Texas, STD testing is often a very important health issue that you need to pay attention to. Sexually active adults are recommended by the government health department to get atleast 3 STD tests every year at a bare minimum. If you are actively sleeping around with people you should always use a condom no matter the circumstances. If you decide to finally be monogamous with your partner than you should both get tested beforehand after a period of 6 months with using condoms so you are sure that there will be no disease passed between you. The different types of STDs that exist in San Antonio are the same types of disease found elsewhere: herpes, HIV, syphilis, gonorrhea, chlamydia, you name it.
One of the main benefits about using our labs and meeting with our doctors in SA is that you won’t have to worry about your wife or neighbor or friends finding out that you had to get tested for STDs. We know that getting an STD can be a troubling and embarassing experience and our goal is just to get you the answers you need as quickly and discretely as possible. You can have the results emailed to your or you can choose to call back in around 24 hours later after submitting your blood and urine sample and you should be able to find out whether or not you are in the clear.
What to do if you are infected? Depending on the exact disease or infection that you got the medicine and treatment options can vary widely. For instance if you get HPV there is a chance that you might have genital warts (which can’t be treated other than to freeze or burn the warts off as they come and that can be extremely painful). If you get herpes you can get some medication to take but you will be dealing with that infection for the rest of your life. One of the most common things we see lately in san antonio is young ladies coming in with chlamydia infections or as they like to call it ‘the clap’. These sorts of infections can often go months without being identified or tested for and by that time the young female individual has already spread the disease around to hundreds if not thousands of unsuspecting virgin boys.
Gonorrhea is another horrible disease that a lot of people in San Antonio find themselves facing at one point or another. This is the stereotypical disease that causes your genitals to burn after urination. Usually an over the counter (OTC) drug can be procured from the doctor and filled at your local pharmacy and then you will only have to wait one or two weeks for the medicine to take action and for you to be disease clear. During this time you should make sure not to engage in any sexual activity even with a condom because you risk transferring the disease through your scrotum or other thin skin layers near the genitals. Be sure to pay special attention to any partners that may have HIV as that could lead to a horrible experience of pain before eventually dying from the aids virus.
