I'd know if I had an STD. Right?
If signs and symptoms do occur, it may be within a few days to weeks or even months after infection.
STD Test: Chlamydia and Gonorrhea
Chlamydia and gonorrhea are among the most common sexually transmitted
diseases (STD) in the U.S. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
(CDC) estimates that more than 2 million people between the ages of 14-39
are infected every year. Any sexually active man or woman can get an
STD like chlamydia or gonorrhea – even if they have been diagnosed and treated
for an STD before.
As much as 75% of infected women and 50% of infected men have no signs or symptoms. Simply put, you can have an STD, like chlamydia or gonorrhea, and not even know it. STD testing is critical in identifying if you are infected with an STD as signs and symptoms are not always detectable or a reliable indicator of an STD.
