STD Testing

STD Testing

Sexual activity not only puts you at risk for pregnancy but also for STDs. You may be surprised to learn that nearly half of all Americans will contract an STD at some point in their life. But many people infected with STDs don’t experience any symptoms. It’s important to be tested to know for sure. Make an appointment for free STD testing and treatment at Morning Star today.

Why Get Tested?

Many people with an STD don’t have any symptoms, so they may not know they’re infected. Even if you’ve had just one sexual partner, it’s important to be tested to know for sure if you have an STD. Make an appointment for free, confidential STD testing and treatment at Morning Star. You will also receive information on safe sex practices and how to reduce your risk of contracting an STD.

Free STD Testing

Am I At Risk For An STD?

  • According to recent statistics, half of Americans will contract a STD at some point in their life.
  • Every year in the U.S. there are an estimated 19 million new infections.
  • Nearly half of all new STD cases occur in people aged 15 to 24.

STDs And Abortion

If you’re considering abortion as a solution to an unplanned pregnancy, it’s important to be tested for STDs before making a decision. Many women with STDs are asymptomatic and don’t realize they’re infected. But women who undergo an abortion with an untreated STD are up to 25% more likely to develop Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID) following the abortion procedure. PID can lead to serious health issues including infertility, ectopic pregnancy, abscess formation and chronic pelvic pain. Make an appointment for free STD testing and treatment.

Gonorrhea

More than 700,000 people annually in the U.S. are infected with gonorrhea. Many men and women with gonorrhea do not have any symptoms. Those who have symptoms often experience a burning sensation when urinating. In women, these symptoms are often mistaken for a bladder or vaginal infection. Untreated gonorrhea can cause serious and permanent health problems in both men and women.

 

Chlamydia

Chlamydia is the most frequently reported bacterial STD in the U.S. Any sexually active person can be infected with chlamydia. The greater the number of sex partners, the greater the risk of infection. Because the cervix of teenage girls and young women is not fully matured, they are at particularly high risk for infection.
