Where is the STD testing service available?
STI refers to the infection caused by sexual intercourse, while the term STD is used to refer to the disease caused by this infection.
Not always do STDs symptoms show up, or they may take a long time to develop. Therefore, early detection of this type of diseases is crucial in order to avoid serious consequences and spreading them to other people. If symptoms appear, the most common usually are:
- Sores in genitals or around the mouth.
- Pain when urinating.
- Pain during sexual intercourse.
- Unusual or foul-smelling discharge from the vagina.
- Discharge from the penis.
Early detection of sexually transmitted infections is crucial to be able to adopt the necessary measures on time and prevent other healthy people from being infected and the development of a serious illness in the future. Therefore, when in doubt or after having risky sexual intercourse, it is recommended to get tested for STDs.
Most of STIs have an incubation period after a sexual encounter. For this period, it is possible that the infection is not detected. If you suffer from any symptoms, we advise you to get tested immediately. If you have no symptoms but suspect to be infected, wait for a time frame before getting tested (always refer to the window periods recommended for each disease).
They are. The STD tests performed at Fly COVID Test are suitable both for men and women.
Depending on the pathogen causing the disease, there are treatments that can clear up the infection completely, delay the disease development or avoid future complications. Those diseases caused by bacteria, such as chlamydia or syphilis, have antibiotics available to fight infection.
