FDA Clears STI Assays for Throat, Rectal Samples | Medpage Today

Great news in Sexually Transmitted Infection (STI) diagnosis. Unfortunately many doctors don’t offer any of these tests prophylactically (as a preventative measure). Being straight and/or monogamous does not make you immune to an STI. Chlamydia and Gonorrhea are the most common STIs, you can get them in ways other than sex, and both are easily cured, usually by a single dose of the respective antibiotics (since they’re both bacteria). Most common, easiest to cure. Know you status.

I know that that’s from the HIV movement. But really, it counts for every STI.


I really wish that the links I posted would replace the verbatim URL with an article preview (a la Facebook).
