Since not all infections present symptoms, Dr. Kainth recommends you still get tested if you’re sexually active, particularly with multiple partners. While male and female condoms provide a barrier against infection, neither solution is 100% effective. The sexually transmitted diseases patients should test, and the frequency of these tests, vary depending on certain conditions.
Conditions depend on both risk groups and the likelihood of an STD developing without symptoms.
While home testing proves promising for HIV, chlamydia, and gonorrhea, it’s not as reliable as tests given under medical supervision. Though you can collect the samples in your own home, these must be sent to a testing facility, and more than 1 sample may be required. Further, home tests produce false-positive results more frequently than lab tests. Should you have a positive home test, schedule an appointment with Dr. Kainth to confirm the results.
