If you’re sexually active, the risk of a sexually transmitted infection (STI) or disease (STD) is possible. We’ll dive into how these tests can help protect you and your partners, educate you about sexual health, and provide essential support services.

Alpha Women’s Resource Center not only gives no-cost STI testing for chlamydia, gonorrhea, trichomoniasis, syphilis, and herpes – we also offer treatment. Make an appointment today. 

1. STIs Can Be Asymptomatic

Many sexually transmitted infections (STIs) can be asymptomatic, meaning they show no noticeable symptoms. This silent progression can make it difficult for individuals to know they are infected without undergoing regular screening. 

This absence of symptoms does not mean the infections are harmless; rather, they can still be transmitted to sexual partners. Regular testing and preventive measures are crucial, especially because an individual can spread the disease without even knowing they are carrying it.

2. Safeguarding Your Overall Health

STIs can be particularly concerning because they can go undetected and untreated for long periods, potentially leading to more severe health issues over time. Untreated, they can cause complications such as infertility, organ damage, and increased susceptibility to other infections.

Testing and knowledge of one’s STI status can also alleviate anxiety and provide peace of mind. It can empower women to make informed decisions about their health and sexual practices, contributing to healthier lifestyles and relationships.

3. Early Detection & Treatment

When caught early, many STIs can be effectively treated with antibiotics or other therapies. For example, chlamydia and gonorrhea can be cured with the right medication, preventing long-term health issues. 

Early detection ensures that treatment can begin promptly, minimizing the risk to your health.

The CDC recommends you get tested every three to six months. Because Alpha Women’s Resource Center offers STI testing at no cost, there’s no reason you can’t take advantage of our services today.
