STD or sexually transmitted disease is usually an infection which spreads from one person to another during sexual contact. Some STDs can also be transferred through touch, since they spread by skin contact. People hardly like to talk or discuss STDs, but it is very important to rule out the possibilities of STD. Whether one likes it or not, if STD testing is ignored, then it can lead to long term consequences.
Why STD Testing is Important?
Often STDs have no signs and symptoms, and the only way to know that are you suffering from a STD is to get tested for it. So it is a good idea to get yourself tested, as you never know if you might have a STD even though you don't show symptoms. Also, when STDs are diagnosed, most of them can be cured.
Consequences of Not Getting Tested
If one has STD and is not getting tested for the same, then it could lead to health problems which can cause permanent damages or might prove to be fatal. Some of the problems are:
- Undiagnosed and untreated STDs can lead to damaged reproductive system leading to sterile men and women.
- Chlamydia, if untreated can lead to epididymitis and shrinkage of testicles and infertility in men. It also leads to pelvic inflammatory disease. But good news is, it can be treated easily.
- Syphillis can make a person blind and deaf, and can also be passed on to babies.
- Gonorrhea which can also be treated easily with antibiotics, can lead to infertility or death if untreated.
- Even HIV/AIDS if diagnosed in early stages, can enable the patient to lead a normal life and does not mean only death, contrary to conventional perceptions.
Symptoms of STD
While, gonorrhea, chlamydia and human papilloma virus ((HPV)) have no symptoms, the common symptoms of STDs might vary.
- Women, the common symptoms are pain and burning sensation during urination, bloody and abnormal vaginal discharge, abdominal pain, blisters, warts, and swollen glands.
- Men often experience inflammation of the testicles, prostate, sores, fever, urethral discharge and pain during urination.
If these symptoms are observed, it is vital to get tested for STDs. Also, the best way to protect your partner is not to practice unsafe sex and to refrain from the same until diagnosed and treatment is complete. Getting yourself tested for STD is also beneficial, as it can prevent complications like cancers and infertility.
The standard STD panel of tests consists of Herpes IgG antibody and HIV antibody blood tests, along with a blood test for syphilis antibody and DNA urine test for gonorrhea and Chlamydia.

Have you been getting emotionally dependent on other people? Are you not being able to make your own decisions and feel like taking suggestions or advice? These symptoms signify dependent personality disorder, which is a common form of personality disorder. This disorder may occur in both men and women, especially during young adulthood. It is caused due to a combination of biological, developmental, psychological and temperamental factors. It is also likely to develop in people whose parents are authoritarian and overprotective.
People affected with dependent personality disorder may experience the following symptoms:
The inability of making the pettiest of decisions without consulting other people.
The person may avoid all responsibilities and be helpless or passive. He or she may get dependent on their spouse or friends.
The person has a great fear of getting abandoned by friends and loved ones. A sense of devastation develops when a relationship ends.
The patient gets extra sensitive to any form of criticism.
Self-confidence and self-reliance are lost, and the person becomes pessimistic. They may feel that they cannot take care of themselves.
The person will tend to avoid disagreeing with others as they fear of losing approval or support.
Difficulty is experienced while being alone.
The patient develops a willingness to tolerate any kind of abuse or bad behavior from others.
The patient is unable to start any new project owing to lack of confidence.
A tendency to fantasize and be naïve develops.
In major cases of dependent personality disorder, the affected people usually do not seek treatment for the disorder. Instead, they would want treatment when a certain problem in life becomes overwhelming and they cannot cope with it. The symptoms of depression and anxiety are treated.
Psychotherapy is the primary method used in the treatment of dependent personality disorder. Psychotherapy aims at making the affected person independent and active. He is taught how to form and maintain healthy relationships. Regular sessions with a therapist are good for making the patient better. Cognitive behavior therapy and assertiveness training may also be used.
Several medicines may be prescribed for treating people with dependent personality disorder. The medicines help in the management of depression and anxiety, which are common symptoms. The medications must be monitored well, as the patient may abuse these prescription drugs or use them inappropriately.
People affected with dependent personality disorder are at an enhanced risk of substance abuse. They are also prone to being abused by other people as they are willing to do anything in order to maintain a relationship. You should visit a psychiatrist in case you experience any symptoms of this condition. If you wish to discuss any specific problem, you can consult a psychiatrist.
