Brecksville, OH (PRWEB) April 01, 2014
This April, Request A Test, a leading national provider of direct to consumer lab testing, is offering a 10% discount on all STD testing. Customers can take advantage of this discount by using promo code SXHLTH10 when placing their order. April has been designated STD Awareness Month by the health and medical community. This month is a great time to put a focus on sexual health and raise awareness of the risks posed by sexually transmitted diseases. Many STD's can display symptoms which are similar to other conditions or no symptoms at all. Getting routinely checked for common STD's is an easy way for a person to take charge of their health and identify concerns before they cause serious complications. Request A Test offers a wide selection of STD lab tests for HIV, Herpes, Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, Trichomonas, Hepatitis and more. These tests can be ordered individually or in cost saving packages like the popular Peace of Mind or Standard STD Panel. The order process is quick, easy, and anyone can get the tests they need without going through an insurance company or making an appointment with a doctor. Customers can choose from 1000's of lab locations across the country and many tests see results in as little as one business day.
Research conducted by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) shows that there are about 20 million new STD infections in the United States every year. Among the most common STD's are Chlamydia with an estimated 2.9 million new infections each year, Trichomonas with 1.1 million new infections, and Gonorrhea with over 800 thousand new infections. It is currently estimated that there are more than 110 million men and women with STD's across the country. Sexually transmitted diseases account for $16 million in medical costs every year. While STD's such as Chlamydia, Gonorrhea and Trichomonas can typically be treated and cured when caught early, many infections go undetected because they show no symptoms. In all cases, it is best to be made aware of an STD as soon as possible. Early treatment gives the highest likelihood of avoiding health complications from chronic infections. Simple blood and urine tests can typically detect most common STD's in as little as 3 months after exposure and some people may be detectable even sooner. Anyone who is sexually active can benefit from periodic STD testing especially those who engage in high risk behaviors. Getting tested is not only important for the health and wellbeing of the person being tested, it can also help to prevent the spread of STD's by cutting down on infections that would otherwise go undetected.
"Getting STD testing is an important part of preventive health care," says Noelle Perez, founder and president of Request A Test. "We hope this discount gives people who may have been putting off getting tested a reason to get themselves checked. Request A Test is committed to providing everyone an easy, affordable way to get the testing they need whenever they need it."
