LOS ANGELES, July 17, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- STDTestInfo.com has recently launched to provide another avenue for people
STD testing is important. The Center for Disease Control noted in a 2016 report that Americans were infected with more than 2 million new cases of gonorrhea, syphilis, and chlamydia, the highest number of these sexually transmitted diseases ever reported.
The CDC reported in their annual Sexually Transmitted Disease Surveillance Report that more than 1.6 million of the new cases were from chlamydia, 470,000 from gonorrhea and close to 28,000 cases were primary and secondary syphilis, the most infectious stages of the disease.
States are seeing increases of STDs cases at local level too. In May 2018, the California Department of Public Health released a report showing a 45 percent increase in cases of chlamydia, gonorrhea, and early syphilis between 2012 and 2017. In 2017, California saw the highest level of incidence of chlamydia since 1990 with 218,710 documented cases.
Both the lack of readily available information about STDs and embarrassment over testing has been suggested as some of the cause of the increase. Both of these issues are covered with STDTestInfo. In order to stop the spread of STDs people have to be empowered with knowledge as well as understand the importance of testing. Once they do, they can easily access confidential testing online. STDTestinfo offers educational information about common STDs, how they are contracted, prevention information and links to ordering tests.
"Whether it's fear of testing positive, not understanding the importance of testing or even not knowing where or how to access a test, many Americans are left without a proper diagnosis and untreated," says Stephen George, owner of STDTestInfo.com. "This new website provides both education about the different STDs and symptoms along with information on how to order STD testing online."
STDTestInfo does not endorse any particular products, services or websites. Its main purpose is a source of information only so any sites that are linked are not endorsed by STDTestInfo. To learn more about the STDs and access all of the STD testing online resources, visit STDTestInfo.com.
