If you suspect you may have an STD, you are not alone. STDs are actually incredibly common in the United States, affecting one in five American adults.
Getting tested is incredibly important to catch any issues before they become more serious. Knowing if you are infected can help you prevent the spread to another person as well. Our team at AFC Urgent Care Athens, TN will treat you with the utmost respect and can help you get to the root of your issue.
Can STDs Spread Easily?
STDs can be incredibly easy to spread because it is common to have one and not know it! Not every STD case comes with symptoms, so you can easily give it to your partner without evening knowing you are doing it. Testing frequently is important to catch any problems to help stop the spread.
Did you know that we test for a variety of common STDs right in our clinic? We can provide a prompt diagnosis and treatment plan, if needed.
