Sexually transmitted diseases, or sexually transmitted infections (STD or STI), are a real risk for you and your partner if you are sexually active. STD’s are very common, and statistics show that over half of us will get an STD at some point in our lives.

Many of these STDs do not show symptoms for a long time, but they can still be harmful and passed on during sex, and that’s why it’s important to get tested regularly. Symptoms can include: burning during urination, discharge from the penis or vagina, itching, sores on the genitals, vaginal bleeding or pain with vaginal sex, pain in the lower abdomen, or pain in the testicles.

Depending on the kind of STD, treatment options vary. If it is a bacterial STD, antibiotics are usually the best treatment option. Viral STD’s cannot be cured, but are best managed with medication. If you have had unprotected sex or are experiencing any kind of symptom, WellNow can help. Call now or go online to make an appointment for affordable STD testing and treatment.
