Sexual Health Awareness month

September brings us sexual health awareness month. It is so important if you are having sex that you are aware of STDs(sexually transmitted diseases).

With more and more hormonal contraceptives available: the pill, implant, coil etc people are choosing these methods over the classic condom. These contraceptives can be extremely appealing. Imagine having the implant placed in your arm and being covered for three years… sounds amazing. It is great for someone like me, I am married and have one sexual partner but if you aren’t in a regular relationship you need to also be thinking about who you are sexually active with. You can’t tell if someone has a STD by looking at them. It is important when you change sexual partners to get them/yourself checked out.

STDs should not be a taboo subject, it’s something we should talk about openly with friends, family, or medical professionals. Sex is something people should enjoy and not something people should be embarrassed about discussing.

STD tests usually vary depending on what you are being tested for but with STD Check based in the USA they can check your blood or urine and make it so simple and easy. Peace of mind is so important and it can be nerve racking going to a doctors and not knowing how a test is performed or if you need to take your clothes off or what’s going to happen.

It can be embarrassing going to the doctors for something sexual related. I remember going for a smear test and I was so terrified the nurse was going to judge me and look at my lady parts and what underwear I had, she really did not care, they are there to do a job and in a professional manner. I would much prefer if a test was needed that I could do it from home!

With online STD tests you can get results in a couple of days and it’s so convenient. It is as simple as ordering a test online and then having your sample taken at your nearest testing lab location, and then awaiting your results in a couple of days.

I wish they did something like this in the UK, I think a lot more people would get tested if it was this easy rather than having to get an appointment with a doctor or at a special clinic to have swabs and other tests performed.

    Really informative post and I wish they would make it easier to get tested, especially as a lot of people can be really shy about this kind of thing.
