Why Tests For STDs Are Important
The most popular tests for sexually transmitted diseases are the urine test, the VDRL test and the urethra smear. These tests can be used to diagnose STDs like gonorrhea, syphilis and genital herpes. Now, it is important to point out that the male STD test is not always the same as the female STD test. This is because men have the same opening for urination and semen ejaculation. It follows that if a man has any sexually transmitted disease, the symptoms will show almost immediately.
In women, the opening for urination is quite different from the vagina. This is why some women may have a sexually transmitted disease without feeling the classic painful urination that tells male patients that they have contracted a sexually transmitted infection.
In any case, it does not matter if the patient is male or female. Improperly treated sexually transmitted infections can lead to serious complications. This is why it pays to get the right diagnosis and treatment without delay.
