HIV the Human Immunodeficiency Virus - STD

HIV, human immunodeficiency virus, has become a very big health threat over the last
few decades. While it was almost unheard of before the 1980's, it now is estimated to
affect over 1,185,000 people in the United States alone. Anyone who is sexually active
has the potential to have been exposed to this disease, as have people who have
come into contact with infected blood or other bodily fluids. Unfortunately, when not
diagnosed early and properly treated, HIV can quickly transform into full blown AIDS
(Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome), which is very difficult to treat and can
quickly lead to death.

Because of the serious nature of HIV and the fact that an infected person can
unknowingly transmit the disease to many other people, it is essential to get tested for
HIV if you think there is any chance at all that you may be infected. By getting tested
and finding out your HIV status early, you can get early treatment if necessary and
avoid infecting future sexual partners or other intimate contacts.
If you know you have been exposed to HIV or are just unsure about whether you are
at risk of having this virus, you are highly encouraged to make an immediate
appointment for testing. However, since the nature of this disease is highly personal
and you may not want many people to know that you are being tested or what the
results are, it is important to use a trusted place for the testing that guarantees to keep
your personal information confidential. Utilize a STD testing service that is specially
dedicated to helping people get confidential testing for all types of STDs and
counseling to help with any positive results.
