Sexually Transmitted Diseases: A general overview

Just within the United Kingdom alone, more than 400.000 people get diagnosed with STIs and the number of those affected is even higher when we take into account that many STIs can remain dormant and completely asymptomatic for long periods of time, making it impossible to detect them without proper STI testing. Of those 400.000 new cases, roughly 50% are diagnosed with chlamydia, undoubtedly the most common STI in the UK. Additional 10% are diagnosed with gonorrhoea. Genital herpes holds the title of the third most common STI in the UK with approximately 33.000 new cases diagnosed annually.

While the majority of bacterial STIs are transmitted through unprotected vaginal, oral or anal sex and can thus be prevented with the proper use of barrier contraceptives, some other conditions can be passed on via different routes, making condoms only partially successful in preventing infection. This is the case with, for example, genital herpes which is a viral condition that can be transferred from one person to another through a contact with an infected sore (skin-to-skin contact), thus significantly increasing the risk.

However, not all STIs will cause noticeable symptoms. For some, the first symptoms can appear days, even weeks following contraction, while others can lay completely dormant and remain asymptomatic for very long periods of time, possibly indefinitely. This is why STI testing is absolutely crucial for your sexual health and is highly recommended to anyone who is sexually active and not involved with a single long-term partner.

Why should I take STI test?

When left untreated, STDs can lead to a number of other more severe health conditions and complications. For example, both chlamydia and gonorrhoea can lead to infertility, while conditions such as HIV, syphilis or hepatitis C can even end with a lethal outcome. In order to prevent these complications, proper and timely treatment is absolutely necessary. And when you keep in mind the already mentioned fact that a significant number of STIs can remain asymptomatic for long periods of time while still increasing the risk of further complications, it is perfectly clear that taking an STI test is the only way to be absolutely sure that you are safe and STD-free. Alternatively, STI test is still the only way to diagnose a symptomless STI and commence treatment in time.
