STD's can be a risk to your health even if you're not experiencing any symptoms. Request A Test has a full selection of lab tests for common STD's like Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, and Herpes. They also offer testing for HIV as well as bacterial infections such as Trichomonas and Mycoplasma Genitalium which are quite common even though public awareness of them is not as high. For those just looking for a routine check, Request A Test has several packages such as the Peace of Mind and the Standard STD Panel which provide a screening for multiple STD's. These tests are available for anyone to order without having to schedule a doctor's appointment or go through an insurance company. Orders can be placed quickly online or over the phone. Customers can choose from 1000's of lab locations across the United States and many tests see results in as little as one business day.
Sexually Transmitted Diseases continue to be one of the largest health concerns in the United States. The Center for Disease Control estimates that there are nearly 20 million new STD cases in the U.S. every year. STD's account for $16 billion in annual health care costs. More significant is the amount of STD infections that go unreported. Many types of STD's can go long periods without showing any symptoms. When they do display symptoms, they are difficult to diagnose because they are often common to other illnesses. An unrecognized STD infection is a health risk not only for the person infected, but every person they may spread the disease to. While high risk behaviors like unprotected sex, sex with multiple partners, and intravenous drug use increase a person's likelihood of contracting an STD, anyone who is sexually active can be at risk. Most STD's are treatable and early treatment can help people avoid many of the long term health complications that many STD's can cause. The best way to identify an STD infection is through lab testing. Early detection can help a person and their doctor determine what their best course of action is. Awareness is the key to both successfully treating and preventing the spread of STD's.
"Taking time to remember the benefits of preventative STD testing is always important," says Noelle Perez, founder and president of Request A Test. "Request A Test is committed to providing the most comprehensive and affordable selection of STD lab tests that anyone can order for themselves. We hope this special chance to save will remind people to take a little time to focus on their health before they get swept up in the holiday rush."
