What is  STD?.

Sexually transmitted diseases (STD), also known as sexually transmitted infections (STIs), are very common.  Millions of new infections occur every year in the United States.

     STDs pass from one person to another through vaginal, oral and anal sex.  They can also be spread though intimate physical contact like heavy petting, though this is not very common.

     STDs don’t always cause symptoms or may only cause mild symptoms.  Therefore, it is possible to have an infection and not know it.  That is why getting an STD test is important if you are having sex.  If you receive a positive STD diagnosis, know that all variants are treatable with medicine and some are curable entirely. 

STDs are preventable.  If you have sex, know how to protect yourself and your sex partner(s) from STDs.

    How the specimen is collected for std Testing

    Urine: Collect the initial 5-10 ml. segment of the first morning void. If the first morning void cannot be obtained, collect a 5-10 ml. voided specimen at least one hour from the previous void.
    Swab: A swab with a transport medium is used for collection.
    For men: Insert the flocked tip of the specimen swab approximately 3/4 of an inch into the urethra and turn to capture exudate and dislodge urethral cells.
    For women: Insert the flocked tip of the specimen swab approximately two inches (5 cm) into the vaginal opening. Gently turn the swab and allow it to absorb the secretions. Directly swab the base of any visible lesions.
    Blood: (HIV, HBV AND HCV testing): 10 ml. of whole blood is needed for the testing.

    Benefits of STD (STI) PCR testing

    1. The PCR test can detect STD (STI) earlier than other tests.
    Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) can directly identify small amounts of viral DNA in samples. Identifying the genetic code of a pathogen doesn’t require the pathogen to be alive—unlike a bacterial culture or viral culture. It also means the infection can be recent enough that the body hasn’t yet developed detectable antibodies for it; this means PCR techniques can sometimes detect sexually transmitted infections (and other diseases) earlier than other tests.

    2. The PCR test is highly accurate on both measures of accuracy:
    Sensitivity (the ability to identify the presence of a pathogen)
    Specificity (the ability to distinguish one pathogen from another)

    3. The sample is easy to handle. Samples don’t need to be taken at exactly the right time, and they’re easy to handle because you don’t have to worry about keeping the pathogens alive.
