Many circumstances result in the need or desire for STD testing. Sexually active individuals, whether casually or in a relationship, can contract a sexually transmitted disease. However, mitigating the risks of STDs is an important part of health and wellness that is often ignored.

When you enter into a new relationship, both parties getting tested for STDs is recommended. Similarly, if you are already in a relationship where safe sex is practiced, STD testing provides reassurances when discussing taking precautions such as condoms out of the equation.

Relationships may involve multiple partners, which increases the risk of sexually transmitted diseases. There is also the issue of transmission if cheating has occurred at any point in a relationship. Regardless of whether you have confirmation that your partner has been unfaithful or not, seeking testing is recommended if either of you develop symptoms of an STD.

STD-Related Health Complications

There are several potential health issues associated with STDs. Infertility, cervical cancer, organ damage and blindness are among the serious complications that can arise from infections. The most common types of STDs that require testing include:

  • Chlamydia
  • Gonorrhea
  • Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)
  • Hepatitis B
  • Syphilis
  • Trichomoniasis

Warts or bumps in or around sexual organs or the mouth may indicate an STD. Other symptoms include pain when urinating, rash, jaundice or excessive vaginal bleeding outside of menstruation. With that said, it is important to bear in mind that STDs are often asymptomatic, so you may not realize you have an infection. It is, therefore, a better practice to get tested periodically.

If you have additional concerns or questions related to STDs, reach out to CLEAR Immediate Care today. We can arrange a consultation at our offices and provide access to the testing that you need in Chicago, Illinois.

CLEAR Immediate Care is the most beautiful medical office I have ever seen. Dr. Shah and Dr. Trivedi are extremely knowledgeable and are able to explain things in a way I can understand. It is obvious that this doctors office is very well organized and everyone is really professional and helpful!
I really like the location because it is convenient for me and has easy parking. I am so happy that I found this practice!

Clear Immediate Care is amazing. Dr Shah and Dr Trivedi spend time with their patients to best understand how to move forward in the best direction. They have… stepped up to the line during COVID, offering screenings and antibody testing. They are also still (virtually) seeing their regular patients. The space is new, beautiful and clean

Went in to clear to have COVID antibody testing done following some flu like symptoms hit back in February before the shut down. The office was so clean and warm. The staff was friendly and almost immediately showed me to a treatment room so we would be separated from others. Drs. Trivedi and Shah were incredibly personable. The blood draw was quick and painless and we’ll be getting results soon. I would highly recommend this clinic to anyone looking for primary care or pain management.

Went in for a COVID antibody test today and had a great experience. Every staff member I met was knowledgeable and kind. I got in and out quickly, all while maintaining strict social distancing guidelines. Dr. Shah sat with me and answered all my questions and gave me a realistic and helpful understanding of what the test could and could not do. The office was very aesthetically pleasing, spacious and calming. I highly recommend CLEAR Immediate Care!

Had a great experience at Clear Immediate Care. Did their COVID antibody testing which was very quick and easy, will be getting the results in a couple days. Dr. Shah and Dr. Trivedi were great and upfront with their communication. The place was clean and safe. Their whole staff was welcoming and were wearing protective equipment. Will be returning for other healthcare needs!

I’ve been suffering from chronic back pain for years. I’ve seen multiple doctors, specialists, and physical therapists. I’ve had MRIs and done acupuncture but life has never been normal for the last 15 years. Dr. Trivedi helped me tremendously with my back issues. He actually CARES about his patients! He listened to me very carefully before developing a treatment plan. I felt more like a valued customer rather than an annoying patient. If you’ve been struggling with back issues, consider seeing Dr. Trivedi.
