Did you know that the majority of women who have a sexually transmitted infection are unaware they have it? That’s because most STDs in women do not cause symptoms. Even if they do, the symptoms are vague and usually do not appear to be life-threatening. Here are the seven most common diseases that you can easily detect with affordable rapid testing facilities.
Chlamydia is the most common sexually transmitted disease in women. It is transmitted through vaginal, oral, or anal sex and is caused by the bacteria Chlamydia trachomatis. While most women have no symptoms, some may develop cervicitis, which is a severe case of cervix inflammation. If left untreated, it may cause fallopian tube damage, resulting in infertility or pregnancy complications. Keep an eye out for symptoms such as sex pain or bleeding, abdominal cramps, or unusual vaginal discharge. Get tested on time so that you can diagnose and treat it easily with antibiotics.
At Affordable Rapid Testing, our female premium STD panel testing provides a quick result. Schedule an appointment online or we also accept walk-ins as well.
Gonorrhea is the second most common sexually transmitted disease in women. It is caused by the same bacteria as Chlamydia and has no symptoms. In some cases, women may experience symptoms that resemble a urinary tract infection. This could result in a burning sensation when peeing, increased vaginal discharge, and bleeding between periods. Get STD tests on time to ensure the fastest cure.
Genital herpes, which is caused by two different viruses, is extremely common. It is estimated that one in every six people between the ages of 14 and 49 have genital herpes, and approximately 90% of women are unaware of it. Blisters that can turn into painful sores around the genitals are the symptoms. However, before the blisters appear, you may experience a fever and body pain. Although there is currently no cure, medication can help reduce the severity and duration of outbreaks.
Syphilis, one of the oldest known STDs, is caused by a bacteria known as the spirochete. Syphilis is caused by spiral-shaped bacteria in three stages. Sores around the mouth or rectum would indicate primary syphilis. Secondary syphilis is characterized by fever and swollen glands. You would also have a skin rash that isn’t itchy. Tertiary syphilis causes no symptoms but can be fatal to the eyes, heart, blood vessels, and brain. It is treatable with the right medication if you detect it with a rapid STD test.
HPVs (Human Papillomaviruses)
HPV, which almost every sexually active person encounters at least once in their lives, has the potential to be harmful to your health. In many cases, HPV goes away on its own, but in a few cases, it can lead to genital warts and even cancer. It is, in fact, the leading cause of cervical cancer. However, cancer may take years to develop after the initial contact with the virus. When women get a Pap test for cervical cancer screening, they usually find out if they have HPV.
With affordable rapid testing, you don’t have to wait till your cancer screening to find out if you have it.
This particular sexually transmitted disease needs to introduction. It can spread through unprotected sex, and women are more likely than men to become infected during vaginal sex. Symptoms include recurring yeast infections, diarrhea, breathing difficulties, vaginal sores, and menstrual irregularities. Because the symptoms are hazy, most women are diagnosed much later. Take an STD test and be sure of your health.
Most people are unaware that sexual contact, particularly anal sex, can cause hepatitis B. Hepatitis B is caused by a virus and causes a serious infection of the liver. Weight loss, fatigue, loss of appetite, and painful joints are all symptoms. Hepatitis B usually clears up in a few months with little treatment.
