Chlamydia

Chlamydia infection rates have dramatically risen over the years, especially in people with vaginas.

Why get tested?

Human Papillomavirus (HPV)

HPV is a very common and highly contagious STI, with over 200 strains out there. It is estimated that 75% to 80% of sexually active adults will have an HPV infection at some point in their lives. Out of these 200 strains, there are 14 high risk strains known to potentially cause cervical cancer and 40 low risk strains known to cause genital warts.

Why get tested?

High risk strains of HPV generally do not show any symptoms of infection. The only real way to find out is to do a HPV test. Testing positive for a high risk strain of HPV does not mean that you have cervical cancer, but that there is an increased possibility of you developing cervical cancer and additional testing might be needed.

Early Detection: Getting an HPV test means you know are being very proactive with your health. A Pap test looks for precancerous cells already in your body, while an HPV test informs you whether you are at high risk or low risk of getting cervical cancer in the future.

Prevention: If you know you don’t have HPV, the likelihood of you having cervical cancer in the next 10 – 15 years is extremely low. If you test positive for a high-risk HPV strain, then you can take the necessary steps for your health and your sexual partners. This might mean additional testing to see whether the HPV infection has resulted in abnormalities, or monitoring the infection and ensuring you don’t pass the infection off to your sexual partners.
