HIV TestingHIV Testing

HIV Testing

HIV testing is used to determine if you are infected with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). HIV is a virus that weakens your body’s immune system, making it difficult to fight infections and certain cancers. If HIV is not treated, you will eventually become very ill and may die. HIV testing can be done easily with a small sample of blood taken from a vein or even from saliva or a finger prick. These tests screen for antibodies that your immune system produces after being exposed to HIV. If the tests are positive, the result needs to be confirmed with further tests.

Syphilis Testing Los Angeles

Are you Sexually Overactive? Get Checked by a Syphilis Testing Center in Los Angeles

A couple of years ago, an outbreak of syphilis infection were detected that even halted adult film production to make porn films. Normally, it’s considered as a sexually transmitted disease, but it can also infect someone through kissing and close body contact. Since it remains dormant after a few days of infection, having yourself tested in a syphilis testing center in Los Angeles will confirm the infection. This is a must if you have multiple sexual partners (a risk that comes when you enter the porn industry).

Syphilis is considered as a sexually transmitted disease like AIDS. While AIDS is caused by the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), syphilis is caused by an infection from the bacterium Treponema pallidum. Sores that resemble bug bites are one of the early signs of syphilis infection. After six weeks, these sores heal that may leave no signs.

Syphilis Symptoms

Infected people don’t experience signs of infection after a few weeks up to three months. In fact, some people experience no symptoms even if they already got infected. If you have multiple sexual partners, it’s very important to undergo syphilis testing in Los Angeles. This way, you can confirm whether you have the disease or not. Getting a negative result is a chance of using protective methods every time you get involved in a sexual intercourse.

The formation of chancre is the first sign of syphilis infection. These sores are painless, but these symptoms are signs that you are highly infectious of the disease. To prevent others from getting infected, it’s very important to avoid sexual intercourse until you get better from prescribed treatment methods. If these sores appear on the mouth and other parts of the body, avoid direct contact with others.

If the syphilis infection doesn’t get treated in its early stage, the infection will spread to the bloodstream. This can cause many problems that start from a skin rash and the rash usually covers the palm of the hands and soles of the feet. With a low immune system, it can also cause sore throats and mild fever.

Danger from Syphilis Infection

The danger from syphilis infection comes when the first and second stage of the infection is not treated. The final stage of syphilis infection involves the damage of the heart and brain. Although you are not contagious in this stage, it will definitely lead to more serious problems in the future. It may lead to death.

Prevention is always better than cure. This is the reason why condoms are used if you usually get involved in sexual intercourse with multiple partners. With a higher risk of infection, you must know how to protect yourself and others. Many people believe that having one sexual partner will prevent the infection – this is not always true.

Once you’re diagnosed positive of the infection, the syphilis testing center in Los Angeles may give prescription drugs for treatment. Antibiotics (such as penicillin) are used to kill the virus in your body and it’s more effective if used at an early stage. For late treatments, injected antibiotics are used.
