At Piedmont Women’s Center, we test for and treat Gonorrhea and Chlamydia for both women and men. STD’s and STI’s are passed from person to person through any sexual activity. They don’t always cause symptoms, or the symptoms may be mild, so it is possible to contract an infection and even spread it others without knowing that you have been infected. This is why it is important to be tested for STD’s and STI’s if you are sexually active.
Approximately 20 million new cases of Sexually Transmitted Diseases and Sexually Transmitted Infections (STD/STI) occur every year in the US. Of the millions of affected people, over 50% of them are aged 15-24!
Additionally, the CDC has released a list of diseases and related conditions, as well as a fact sheet of ways young adults can prevent STD’s and stay healthy.
The Center for Disease Control (CDC) states that “if you are diagnosed with an STD, know that all can be treated with medicine and some can be cured entirely.”
