Most people are aware that untreated STDs can lead to severe health conditions. For instance, certain STDs can cause pelvic inflammatory disease, infertility, AIDS, organ failure, and more.

Equally disconcerting is the possibility of cancer from the human papillomavirus (HPV). Although HPV is generally associated with cervical cancer, HPV’s reach is not constrained to cervical cancer, nor is it limited to females. HPV can also cause cancer of the anus, penis, vagina, throat, and vulva.

HPV doesn’t have any symptoms, so it can be years before any other bodily symptoms appear. Not only is this concerning for the individual carrying HPV, but an infected individual can unknowingly pass HPV to subsequent partners, thus perpetuating the spread of disease.

The best way to avoid HPV is the prevention of contraction. Use condoms and avoid risky behaviors such as drugs and alcohol during sex. There is also a vaccine available for HPV. Regular check-ups with your physician are also recommended.

Additionally, it’s best to test regularly for STDs of all kinds. This is where Private Testing Center comes in!
