STD and STI – It is better to be safe than sorry...
The number of cases of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) and sexually transmitted infections (STI) is continually increasing and affecting a younger and younger population. STDs or STIs are caused by microorganisms capable of being transmitted from one person to the other during sexual contact. Some of these don’t cause any clearly identifiable symptoms and can be passed on without anyone’s knowledge. However, they can activate at anytime and can be associated with preventable complications.
Why should you get tested ?
- To know your status when faced with STDs/STIs so you can reduce the risk of disease transmission.
- So you can be treated as soon as possible when dealing with diseases that sometimes have no symptoms, thus avoiding complications or the aggravation of the disease.
- To clarify your health status and start a new relationship in total peace.
