In 2017 we should be ready to learn, be as open about our sexual health as we are about which school we attend, which neighborhood we choose to live in and what our favourite drink is. Raising the topic of STDs should not be something we should be embarrassed about.
Unfortunately, there is still a huge majority of people who are clueless when it comes to sexually transmitted diseases. Very often people are aware of the importance of HIV testing but completely ignore other sexually transmitted diseases. How many people do you know who are sexually active but have never tested for a sexually transmitted disease that could be life threatening?
The introduction of the STD home test by UDoTest has made it “easy, discreet and convenient” for people in South Africa to do home screening with their UDoSTDTest product. The test is for both men and women over the age of 18. The unique urine-based STD test provides accurate results when screening for two of the most prevalent STDs namely Gonorrhea and Chlamydia, there is also an upgrade option offering a wide range of STDs off of the same urine sample.
Why do we still have a stigma around STDs? We are often too shy to openly talk about sex with the fear of being judged and labeled by the people around us.
Why do so few people test for STDs? People are mostly embarrassed in addressing their private parts or are too busy to make an appointment with a doctor to check on their health. Even if they do make an appointment they never ask to be tested as STD testing is not part of the routine checkup. And, sometimes people just don’t have the luxury to take time off from their busy schedules to go to a doctor’s office, the easiest way out is to sweep this topic under a carpet.
When should you get tested for STDs? When you know that you are sexually active and have engaged in unprotected sex. Most of the time, STDs have no symptoms. Testing is the only way to know for sure if you have an STD.
