STD Testing Diagnosis and Treatment Information
The only real way to know for sure if you’re infected with a STD is to have a doctor test for the disease. Some STDs such as Herpes or Genital Warts can be diagnosed by a visual inspection when symptoms are present, while other STD's may need further tests done such as blood work or taking a culture from the infected area. Its imperative to see a physician at the very first sign of an STD because of the health risks that may occur if left untreated for a periods of time.
It's important to remember that when you make your first appointment that you may have an STD and that not all STD's are curable but most are treatable. When talking to the health physician make sure that you tell them absolutely everything. The more they know about you and your symptoms the better they will be able to help diagnose your condition and treat you.
