STD Testing in Burlington, MA
Sexual health is a major part in your overall health. If you’re sexually active, it’s important to receive regular screenings so that you can detect potential infections.
However, many patients aren’t sure whether or not they have STDs or need to get tested. At AFC Urgent Care Burlington our team of urgent care staff and providers ensures that you get accurate, same-day, and affordable STD screenings whenever you need them.
How to tell if you have an STD:
STDs, or sexually transmitted diseases, are infections or viruses that are primarily transmitted through sexual contact. However, STDs can be transmitted through other forms of contact. Getting an STD test is the only way to truly know if you do or do not have an STD.
For example, a majority of patients that have an STD are asymptomatic, which means that don’t have any immediate physical symptoms. This means STDs require a test or screening in order to fully detect them.
STD testing is recommended every six months to a year for sexually active individuals, for individuals who have a new partner since last testing, and individuals who have more than one partner. Additionally, high-risk factors such as frequent drug use during intercourse increase your risk of an STD.
