STDs are some of the most common diseases that lead to people seeking medical attention. There are more than 30 different parasites, bacteria, and viruses that are transmitted through sexual intercourse. According to the CDC, there are 1 million new STD infection cases every day around the world. This means that there are over 365 million cases of STD infections in a year. The most common STDs include trichomoniasis, Chlamydia, syphilis and gonorrhea. There are over 500 million people with genital herpes and 290 million women with HPV.
According to meet positives, “The STD infection rate is on the rise. This is even with the rise of Condom use according to the World Health Organization. It simply means that there are many people who are not aware of their status. When people do not get tested, it becomes easy for the STDs to spread. Additionally, some of the STD will not show any symptoms and this makes people believe that they are not infected.”
In efforts to create more STD awareness, there is a need to encourage STD testing. The problem is that there are many people who would like to be tested but they are not because they feel embarrassed or are afraid of the stigma associated with the testing process. To help solve this, Meet Positives is offering at home testing kits that are aimed at giving people the privacy they need when they are getting and STD test. The fact that people can test for STDs at home will go along way into fighting STD spread and allow people to know their status.
Anyone can get an at-home STD test kit and test for different STDs, the site says.
