5 Reasons You Should be Tested for STDs

There comes a point in everyone’s lives when they should consider STD testing and realistically most people should be tested for STDs on a regular basis. The reason is simply because anyone who is having sex could be exposed to STDs. 

Knowing is Better Than Not Knowing

It’s common for people who are in a relationship to not get STD testing, especially if they have already engaged in unprotected sex.  It’s easy to assume that if they were going to get it, they would have already. No matter how long you have been having sex or in a relationship, it’s never too late to get tested.

You Can’t Tell If Someone Has an STD by Looking at Them

Many STDs cause no symptoms. For example, 70 to 95 percent of women and 90 percent of men with chlamydia show no symptoms. People with HIV typically don’t develop symptoms for 10 years. STD testing is the only way to know for sure.

Respect Yourself and Your Partners

By far, the best reason to get tested for STDs is because doing so helps you to have honest and open conversations with your sexual partners about STD risk and promoting safe sex.

Are You Considered a High Risk

There’s a lot of incorrect information going around about STDs. The truth is anyone who is having sex, even those who may not be considered “high risk,’ could be exposed to STDs.

Most STDs Are Treatable and Curable

The sooner you know if you have an STD, the sooner you can start treatment. Don’t assume you were tested the last time you saw your doctor, medical check-ups don’t normally include STD testing unless you ask for it.
