Common "Std Test" queries answered by top doctors | iCliniq

Std Test

STD test, also known as sexually transmitted infection (STI) testing, is a medical procedure that checks for any sexually transmitted diseases in the body. It typically involves a physical examination and laboratory tests, such as blood, urine, or swab samples, to detect the presence of STIs such as chlamydia, gonorrhea, syphilis, herpes, and HIV. Early detection and treatment of STIs can prevent long-term health complications and the spread of infections to others. It is recommended that sexually active individuals get tested regularly, especially if they have multiple sexual partners or engage in unprotected sex.
