How often should I get checked for stds?

How often should I get checked for stds?

Depends on activity: That depends on how often you're having sex, especially unprotected sex. It could be anywhere from never to every 3 months. I have some patients who should probably be tested every week! but remember that there's no single easy test for stds. To test broadly you may need a combination of blood tests, urine tests, and often throat and rectal swabs. ...Read more

What is the minimum age someone can get stds?

What is the minimum age someone can get stds?

There's no minimum: If sex occurs (especially if there is penile penetration tinto another person's vagina, anus, or mouth), STDs can be transmitted. Of course that means the vast majority of STDs occur in adults or teens who are sexually active, but babies and young children sometimes get STDs from sexual abuse. Also, if a pregnant woman is infected, some STDs can be transmitted to babies in the uterus or at birth. ...Read more

If my husband tests negative for stds, how could i get 1?

Who knows?: Being negative for stds on testing still does not guarantee for 100% saying no stds because all the tests have their false positive or negative result. Furthermore, many men and women are asymptomatic carriers notably for hpv, herpes, chlamydia, etc. In real life, we have to keep up good health to win the war against bacteria, yeasts, virus as much as we can through practicing healthy lifestyle. ...Read more
