Why are the sexually transmitted infections (STIs) dangerous? The first answer you will receive is that they are very infectious and the germs enter your body through sexual intercourse. This is not a full-proof answer and you don't receive all the necessary details that would help you to protect yourself from these infections. You receive only a mere glimpse of the complications that you may face through these diseases. Actually the non-detectability of the STIs at the initial stage makes them dangerous. It is quite natural that if you can't detect a disease you won't be able to start the treatment. In case of STIs, you usually start receiving symptoms of the infection at least after 2 weeks since you were infected. Moreover, those apparently harmless symptoms as well as the general tendency to protect privacy would delay starting the treatment further. Finally, when you will seriously address the situation your health condition will be highly weakened and your immunity system will be defenseless against the life-threatening infections.

You can avoid all these complications very easily if you undergo STI tests, also known as STD tests at regular intervals. Experts are of the opinion that unprotected sexual acts are major reasons that encourage the spread of STIs. In addition, people with multiple partners are also at a great risk of suffering from the consequences of sexually transmitted infections. Practically, it is not always possible to plan the time of your sexual involvement. You also cannot know for sure whether your partner is already a carrier of some infection or not. So, with help of STI tests you can confirm whether you are already in the risk zone or not. Syphilis, mycoplasma genitalium and non-specific urethritis (NSU) are some of the most common yet highly dangerous forms of STIs. The STI tests would help you diagnose the problem at the initial stage so that you can start the required treatment at the earliest.

Mycoplasma test :

The most effective way to know whether you are suffering from mycoplasma genitalium or not is to take a Mycoplasma test. This is quite a common STI that affects more than 50, 000 people all over the UK every year. The complications you may face due to this health condition are cervicitis, endometritis and pelvic inflammatory disease. The Full STI Screen Test and sending your urine sample to the GUM clinic are the easiest ways to diagnose the problem.

Non-Specific Urethritis test :

The term 'Non-Specific Urethritis' is used for the condition when the actual cause of urethritis cannot be identified. The term urethritis refers to a particular medical condition, suggesting inflammatory feeling in the urine tube. Compared to women, men are reported to suffer more from this condition. This situation is often reported to be caused by other STIs, most frequently by chlamydia. The best way to diagnose this situation is to take assistance of the GUM clinic or you can also opt for Full STI Screen Test. Once the problem is identified, proper usage of antibiotics, namely Azithromycin and Doxycycline for seven days, can give you complete relief.

Syphilis test:

Syphilis is one of the most dangerous and highly contagious forms of sexually transmitted infections. Unless you are addressing this situation at the earliest stage it may lead to life-threatening situations. The bacterium Treponema pallidum is responsible for spread of the infection and it can spread among partners in any form of sexual act. This disease affects your entire physical system in three stages. The third and last is the most dangerous for your physical condition as stains of the infection affect almost all your internal organs, including the brain. The only way to cure this infection is proper administration of penicillin. The strong antibacterial properties of this medication weaken the disease by stopping the bacteria from replicating. Naturally your physical system, afterwards, receives the scope to completely remove this infection from your body. However, like most of the STIs, syphilis cannot be traced at the initial stage unless diagnosed by a syphilis test. The Symptomatic Lesion Swab test and GUM clinic test are the most effective methods for identification of the infection.
