Frequently asked questions
- What’s the difference between and STD and STI?
Sexually transmitted disease (STD) and sexually transmitted infection (STI) are two terms that are commonly used to describe infections such as gonorrhea, chlamydia and trichomoniasis, that are transmitted through intimate contact. While scientists may call out some technical differences between these terms, they are most often used interchangeably by clinicians and are essentially the same.
- How often should you be tested for STDs?
If you’re sexually active it’s a good idea to be tested every year for STD’s, even if you feel fine. Some STDs have no symptoms so you might not know you have one unless you get tested. You should also be tested if you start experiencing symptoms, or after having unprotected sex with a partner whose STI status is unknown.
- What treatments are available for chlamydia, gonorrhea and trichomoniasis?
If you do test positive for any of these STIs, know that they are curable and can be treated quickly with antibiotics. Virtuwell can prescribe treatment or recommend next steps if you or your partner have positive test results. Learn more about STD treatment.
