In fact, the CDC estimates that 20 million new infections occur every year. If you are sexually active, regular STD testing is one of the most important ways you can protect your health. At Healthline Medical Group, we offer urgent care STD testing and STD treatment at our clinic in Van Nuys, California. Visit us today, and our compassionate staff will guide you through the process.

Types of STDs

Though there are many different sexually transmitted diseases, they fall under three general categories. These are:

  • Bacterial – Chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis are three common examples of STDs caused by bacteria. Bacterial STDs can generally be cured by antibiotics.
  • Parasitic – Pubic lice and scabies are two types of parasites that can easily spread through sexual activity. These can typically be cured with medication or creams.
  • Viral – Examples of viral STDs include HIV, hepatitis B and C, and HPV. These diseases cannot be cured but can be treated with medication.

Why STD Testing Is Important

Symptoms of most sexually transmitted diseases are apparent, but there are some cases when they are not. Indeed, asymptomatic patients may be carrying an STD and not know it. This is why some doctors use the term sexually transmitted infection (STI) instead. Though a patient may be unaware of an STI, the infection may still be causing harm to the body. STDs and STIs that are left untreated can increase the risk of certain types of cancer, HIV infections, infertility, harm to unborn babies, and transmission to sexual partners.
