HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) is the virus that causes AIDS (acquired immunodeficiency syndrome). A positive STD test for HIV is a life changing result. By killing or damaging cells of your body’s immune system, HIV progressively destroys your body’s ability to fight infections and certain cancers. People diagnosed with AIDS may get life-threatening diseases called opportunistic infections, which are caused by microbes such as viruses, bacteria, or fungi. These infections do not usually make healthy people sick. Those with HIV/AIDS are also at an increased risk of developing certain cancers, neurological disorders, and a variety of other conditions. Learn more about HIV and AIDS from the National Institute of Health. According to FloridaHealth.gov, 3% of all diagnosed stds in Orange Country were accompanied with an HIV diagnosis.
Genital herpes is a sexually transmitted disease (STD) caused by the herpes simplex viruses type 1 (HSV-1) or type 2 (HSV-2). Most genital herpes is caused by HSV-2. Most individuals have no or only minimal signs or symptoms from HSV-1 or HSV-2 infection giving necessity to regular std testing for early detection and reducing the risk of unnecessary transfer of the herpes virus. When signs do occur, they typically appear as one or more blisters on or around the genitals or rectum. The blisters break, leaving tender ulcers (sores) that may take two to four weeks to heal the first time they occur. Typically, another outbreak can appear weeks or months after the first, but it almost always is less severe and shorter than the first outbreak. Although the infection can stay in the body indefinitely, the number of outbreaks tends to decrease over a period of years. Getting herpes testing is important to stopping the spread of genital herpes.

Chlamydia also can cause discharge from the penis of an infected man. Chlamydia is easily detected with a simple STD test for Orlando residents.
Gonorrhea is a sexually transmitted disease (STD).

Syphilis is a sexually transmitted disease (STD) caused by the bacterium Treponema pallidum.

A urinalysis is a group of tests that detect and semi-quantitatively measure various compounds that are eliminated in the urine, including the byproducts of normal and abnormal metabolism as well as cells, including bacteria, and cellular fragments. Urine is produced by the kidneys, located on either side of the spine at the bottom of the rib cage. The kidneys filter wastes and metabolic byproducts out of the blood, help regulate the amount of water in the body, and conserve proteins, electrolytes, and other compounds that the body can reuse. Anything that is not needed is excreted in the urine and travels from the kidneys to the bladder, through the urethra, and out of the body. Urine is generally yellow and relatively clear, but every time someone urinates, the color, quantity, concentration, and content of the urine will be slightly different because of varying constituents.
Full STD Testing Panel
Often times when one or more STD are suspected to have been contracted a STD panel is the best course of action. The leading indicator of carrying an STD is a having been diagnosed previously with any other STD. For this reason a broad panel of STD screens is usually recommended. Running a panel is standard for Orlando std testing.
