About This Test

HIV

HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) is a viral, sexually transmitted infection that without appropriate treatment will progress to acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). HIV attacks the immune cells and weakens the body’s defense against infection. Initially, men and women infected with HIV may have no or mild symptoms for many years, which makes it easy to spread through unprotected sex. The virus can pass from person to person through contact with HIV-infected semen, vaginal fluid, breast milk, or blood. Testing for HIV is done with a sample of blood. There are 2 types of HIV: HIV-1 and HIV-2. Although HIV-1 is the most common, our test checks for both.

There is no cure for HIV or AIDS, but there are treatment options that can slow the progression of the disease. HIV does not go away on its own. If left untreated, HIV can cause damage to the immune system and may develop into AIDS.

RPR [Syphilis]

Syphilis is a bacterial sexually transmitted infection caused by Treponema pallidum. Men and women may never experience symptoms of syphilis, which makes it very easy to spread from person to person. It can cause infection in the genitals, throat, and rectum and can lead to sores, rashes, and lesions on your body. Testing for syphilis is usually done with a sample of blood (collected by finger prick). Syphilis is treatable, but usually will not go away on its own. Treatment with antibiotics is very effective; however, if your test results are positive, it is important to start treatment immediately and get tested frequently. If syphilis is not treated, it can cause damage to the brain, eyes, heart, nerves, bones, joints, and liver.

Gonorrhea

Gonorrhea is a sexually transmitted infection caused by the bacteria Neisseria gonorrhoeae. Gonorrhea is the second most commonly reported STD in the United States.1 However, some people with gonorrhea may never have symptoms, which makes it very easy to spread from person to person. It can cause infection in the genitals, throat, and rectum. Gonorrhea is easily treatable, but usually will not go away on its own.2-5 If gonorrhea is treated early, it is unlikely to lead to complications. However, if it is not treated, it can spread and may cause serious complications. In people assigned male at birth, untreated gonorrhea can spread to the testicles and prostate gland and cause infertility. In people assigned female at birth, untreated gonorrhea can spread to reproductive organs and can cause pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), ectopic pregnancy, and infertility.

Chlamydia

Chlamydia is a sexually transmitted infection caused by the bacteria Chlamydia trachomatis. Chlamydia is the most commonly reported STD in the United States.1 However, some people with chlamydia may never have symptoms, which makes it very easy to spread from person to person. Chlamydia can be treated with antibiotics. If chlamydia is not treated, it usually does not go away on its own. It can stay within the body for years without symptoms and may flare up and cause serious complications. In people assigned male at birth, untreated chlamydia can spread to the testicles and the tubes that carry sperm from the testicles (epididymitis) and cause infertility. In people assigned female at birth, untreated chlamydia can spread to reproductive organs and can cause pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), ectopic pregnancy, and infertility.
