No one can live comfortably if they fear that they have caught an STD. Thanks to the existence of immense sexual ignorance, the human mind achieves infinite levels of crazy trying to figure this one out. After all, too many questions remain unanswered. Some people are even unaware of the true nature of HIV and don’t know that they ought to get themselves tested. For, if you are at risk and unaware of it, none can save you! In order to create awareness, the governing body of countries like India has a National HIV testing day. There are a few other troublesome things such as hepatitis, STDs etc. that put the person at risk and hence, need to be tested. People definitely need to stop asking if they should get tested; if you feel like you should, go ahead.
Though, not everyone is aware of it, HIV AIDS is an STD too but it is an incurable one. Hence, one needs to be extra careful when it comes to things like these. One wrong move could mean a constant death threat. HIV is transmitted only when there is intermingling of fluids or direct injection of the virus into the blood stream. There are government centres that perform the HIV test for free. These government centres will also test you for STD. HIV can only be controlled and not cured.
It is recommended that everyone keeps checking themselves for STDs at regular intervals so that the risk is lower. The centre nearest to you can easily be located online and hence, nothing is too much of a worry. Usually, one is unaware of the risk of HIV and the knowledge of its existence can help you make a better decision.
There are a large number of private centres across cities as well where you can get yourself checked out at a significantly lower cost. One of the best ways of preventing STD is to have protected sex until you are absolutely sure.
You could call a doctor home and explain the situation to him or her clearly so that they may embark upon their duties; in this case, testing you.
