Sexually Transmitted Diseases
Sexually transmissible infection checks are diagnostic procedures employed for the identification of STD infections.
Sometimes the sexually transmissible infection does not cause any symptoms and the infected person can continue to transmit the infection unknowingly. Early detection of the infection may be helpful for the successful treatment and prevention of further transmission.
Screening refers to the testing of sexually transmissible infections in asymptomatic individuals who are more vulnerable to the infection.
Diagnostic procedures for the identification of common STIs include:
- Blood tests
- Urine test
- Body fluid sample test
- Specific screening tests for people prone to the infection
Blood and urine tests are helpful in identifying infections, such as advanced stages of syphilis. Fluid sample testing assists in confirming the type of infection and the causative agent.
