Understanding STDs

A sexually transmitted disease (STD) is an infection that spreads through sexual contact like vaginal, oral, and anal sex. Common STDs include gonorrhea, chlamydia, genital herpes, and human papillomavirus (HPV).

Many STDs can be asymptomatic — meaning that they don’t cause any symptoms. This is why regular STD testing and check-ups are essential for early detection and appropriate treatment. Speak to your healthcare provider for recommendations on how often you should get tested.

If you believe you’ve been exposed to an STD or if you just want to get checked for peace of mind, LifeMD is here to help. Licensed healthcare professionals can write lab orders, determine if you require testing, and provide prescriptions for any medications you may need.
