An STD is a sexually transmitted disease. STDs are very common in the United States. According to the American Social Health Organization, every year in the U.S. nearly 19M new cases of STDs are reported.
Most STDs are silent. It’s very common to have an STD and not know. All STDs are managed best with early detection, and many STDs are curable. Ask your care team at Parker Medical for more information about STD testing.
