STD Testing Beverly Hills, CA

Sexually transmitted diseases are infections caused by bacteria, viruses or parasites. These infections can be transmitted through skin-to-skin contact or sexual activity. You can have these conditions without being aware you are infected. Sexually transmitted disease (STD) testing can help provide an accurate diagnosis for individuals experiencing signs and symptoms.

Los Angeles STD/STI Screening

Testing is highly recommended over all individuals over the age of 13 years old. STD/STI screening is best suited for individuals who are at high risk for developing complications or spreading the disease. There are several types of tests available. While STDs are common, the type of testing you need may depend on your risk factors.

Your doctor may perform a physical exam to look for signs of infection and review your medical history. Other common tests detect chlamydia, gonorrhea, HIV, syphilis, hepatitis, HPV and genital herpes. Your primary care doctor can determine the best options best suited for your needs.

STD Symptoms

Symptoms of an STD can create pain during sexual intercourse and urination. You may notice discharge, swelling, itching or sores and bumps around the genital area. Other symptoms can include fever, fatigue and body aches. When getting tested, inform your doctor about what kind of sexual activity you engaged in and any protection methods used. Some individuals can be infected and transmit infection without any visible symptoms.

STD Treatment

Treatment options will vary depending on the sexually transmitted disease. You may be required to abstain from sexual activity and inform any recent partners within the last year of your diagnosis. Common treatment options include antibiotics and antiviral drugs. You may need to complete additional sexually transmitted disease testing after treatment. Some sexual infections can be managed but not eliminated entirely.
