Sexually Transmitted Infections

Sexual health is an important part of your general health. However, it is often neglected, in some cases out of embarrassment or apprehension about the process of being diagnosed and treated. That is why many people are unaware that they have been infected with a sexually transmitted infection (STI).

Without knowing, you may be at risk for developing complications or could pass an infection to a current or future partner. Whether you are starting a new relationship or in an existing relationship and having unprotected sex, there are test options available that can help you make informed decisions about your sexual health.

GenPath offers a convenient list of tests that can provide your physician with timely results for multiple infections from easy-to-collect samples. These tests allow you to be aware of your status, actively treat infection, and potentially avoid further complications.

Examples are:

  • Chlamydia and gonorrhea
  • STI urine profiles (male and female)
  • Hepatitis B
  • Hepatitis C
  • Herpes simplex virus (HSV)

What Testing Would my Healthcare Provider Order?

If you are experiencing symptoms and your doctor suspects you have contracted an STI, using a simple urine, blood, or tissue specimen, GenPath can perform testing to assist in screening, diagnosis, and management of your sexual health.
