When it comes to Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs), the staff at ANY LAB TEST NOW® knows that symptom free does not necessarily mean disease free, and that STDs can only be detected through laboratory testing, such as tests offered by ANY LAB TEST NOW. STD testing at ANY LAB TEST NOW is anonymous, confidential and comprehensive. The ANY LAB TEST NOW professionals explain that, left untreated, infected people not only put others at risk but may also suffer related health complications or even death.
By using the convenient walk-in services of ANY LAB TEST NOW to test for STDs, there’s no need to prolong the stress of not knowing. Even if your ANY LAB TEST NOW screening indicates that you test positive, the good news is that many STDs are treatable. Early detection by a lab test can also help in treatment. Because ANY LAB TEST NOW does not make diagnoses or treat conditions, results should be taken to your physician to discuss treatment options. The ANY LAB TEST NOW results will give you the knowledge with which you can take control of your health.
An ANY LAB TEST NOW screening is knowledge many Americans could use. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), there are some 19 million new STD infections annually. However, the CDC notes that there is some progress: continuing increases in diagnoses for Chlamydia (one of the most widespread STDs in the U.S.) likely means more people are protecting their health by getting tested, perhaps at private drug testing facility like ANY LAB TEST NOW.
An information pamphlet put out by ANY LAB TEST NOW has a page with quick points on STDs. For most of these infections, the ANY LAB TEST NOW brochure shows that the CDC recommends all sexually active persons be tested. In the case of Chlamydia and gonorrhea, the ANY LAB TEST NOW information sheet states that women usually have no symptoms. This makes having a quick ANY LAB TEST NOW screening a truly smart choice. Not noted in the ANY LAB TEST NOW brochure, however, is that the CDC can only keep track of a fraction of the STDs that exist.
The STD testing available at your local ANY LAB TEST NOW includes testing for HIV, syphilis, Herpes I and II, gonorrhea, Chlamydia, Hepatitis B and C. These can be tested on an individual basis or as part of an ANY LAB TEST NOW Comprehensive STD Panel.
