Sexually transmitted infections (STIs) are viruses or bacteria spread through sexual contact with an infected individual. Some of the most common STIs are chlamydia, gonorrhea, trichomonas vaginalis, human papillomavirus (HPV) and mycoplasma genitalium (M. gen). An estimated 26 million new STIs occur every year in the United States.

 Since many STIs don’t always show signs or symptoms, it is important that patients are tested if they are sexually active and at risk of potential exposure to STIs. It is especially important to test women for STIs as they may cause severe health and reproductive problems if left untreated. According to the CDC, all sexually active women younger than 25 years should be tested for chlamydia and gonorrhea every year. The CDC also recommends that women who are pregnant should be tested for syphilis, HIV, hepatitis B, and hepatitis C in the early stages of pregnancy.

PathGroup offers laboratory tests that allow healthcare providers to learn more about their patients’ sexual health.
