STD Testing

Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) are spread through anal, oral, or vaginal intercourse.  Some STDs, such as HIV and Hepatitis B, can also be transmitted by sharing drug paraphernalia.

Testing is important because often there are no symptoms in the beginning.  STDs can have consequences ranging from mild to serious such as infertility, tubal pregnancy, cancer and sterility.
