Why get tested?
Despite having become more controlled in North America, AIDS is still a terrifying prospect, and it's only one of many STDs out there. The major publicity surrounding AIDS has left us slightly more ignorant about other STDs, which may not be deadly but do pose wider threats. The major problem with any STD is its sneaky capability to go unnoticed. The symptoms can range from chancre sores, to painful urination and discharge, to flu-like aches and pains. Many men and women carry STD bacterium or viruses for years without visible symptoms, and unknowingly pass them on to their sexual partners.
