STD Definitions/Descriptions

STD stands for Sexually Transmitted Disease, also known as STI or Sexually Transmitted Infection, meaning that these diseases are most often, but not exclusively, spread by sexual intercourse.

STDs are passed from one person to another through sexual activity which can include vaginal intercourse, anal intercourse and/or anal intercourse. Though not as common, STDs can also be transmitted through intimate physical contact such as heavy petting.

STDs do not always cause symptoms, or they may only cause mild symptoms. This makes it very possible to have an infection and not know it. Therefore, if you are sexually active it is important to get tested at least once a year. You will find the most common types of STD and STI testing below.

HIV - HIV is a sexually transmitted disease (that can be spread outside of sexual contact) known as Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV). It is the virus that causes AIDS and interferes with the body's ability to fight infections.

Herpes 1 and 2 - Herpes is an infection caused by HSV (herpes simplex virus). This virus affects the external genital, anal region, mucosal surfaces and skin in other parts of the body. There are two types of herpes simplex viruses: HSV-1 9 herpes type 1, or oral herpes) and HSV-2 (herpes type 2, or genital herpes).

Gonorrhea - Gonorrhea is a common sexually transmitted disease that can cause infections in the genitals, rectum and throat for both men and women. If untreated it can cause serious health issues, however, if it is caught in time it can be cured with the right medicine.

Chlamydia - Chlamydia is a common sexually transmitted disease that may not show symptoms. However, those that do show symptoms may experience genital pain and discharge from the vagina or penis. If left untreated it can cause damaging effects to the woman's reproductive system.

Syphilis - Syphilis is a sexually transmitted disease that develops in different stages. The first stage involves a painless sore on the genitals, rectum or mouth. After that initial sore heals, the second stage is a rash. Then, there are no symptoms until years later which is the final stage - damaged brain, nerves, eyes and/or heart.

Many STDs can be easily cured with medication, so you can just finish your treatment and get on with your life. And even though some STDs can't be cured, there are lots of ways to treat your symptoms and prevent you from giving your STD to anyone you have sex with.

People with STDs can be in relationships, have sex, and live totally normal lives. Most people get an STD at least once, and millions are living with STDs now. Having an STD is nothing to feel ashamed of, and it doesn't mean you're "dirty" or a bad person , it just means you're a pretty normal human who got an infection. The reality is that STDs can happen to anybody who's ever been sexual with someone, which is almost everybody on earth. And a few STDs can be spread in non-sexual ways, too.

AI Overview

Overview of STD Testing

Sexually Transmitted Disease (STD) testing is a critical component of healthcare, essential for detecting and managing infections transmitted through sexual contact. STD testing is recommended for anyone who is sexually active, as early detection and treatment can prevent serious health consequences and limit the spread of infections to others.

Importance of STD Testing

Regular STD testing is vital because many infections often do not show symptoms immediately, or symptoms may be mild and go unnoticed. Untreated STDs can lead to severe health issues, including infertility, complications during pregnancy, and increased risk of acquiring other STDs, including HIV.

Common Types of STD Tests

  • HIV Testing: Performed through blood or saliva samples to detect the presence of HIV antibodies or antigens.
  • Chlamydia and Gonorrhea: These bacterial infections are typically tested via urine tests or swabs of the genital area.
  • Syphilis: Diagnosed through blood testing, which can detect antibodies produced in response to the infection.
  • Herpes: Although no cure exists, testing for herpes involves blood tests or swabs from an active outbreak.
  • Hepatitis B and C: Blood tests are used to diagnose these viral infections, which affect the liver.

When to Get Tested

  1. After Unprotected Sex: It's advisable to get tested if you've had unprotected sexual contact with a new partner or multiple partners.
  2. If Symptoms Occur: Symptoms such as sores on the genitals, pain during urination, or unusual discharge are indications for testing.
  3. Regular Screenings: Annual or more frequent STD testing may be recommended for active individuals, especially if they have multiple partners.

What to Expect During STD Testing

The testing process is straightforward, involving a physical examination, the collection of samples (blood, urine, swabs), and sometimes a visual inspection of affected areas. Confidentiality is a cornerstone of STD testing, ensuring privacy and discretion in handling patient information and test results.

Benefits of STD Testing

  • Early Detection and Treatment: Allows for timely treatment that can effectively manage symptoms and prevent transmission to others.
  • Peace of Mind: Provides reassurance and helps maintain your health and the health of your partners.
  • Prevention of Complications: Reduces the risk of the long-term health issues associated with untreated STDs.

Understanding the importance of STD testing and participating in regular screenings can significantly impact personal health and public health outcomes. It is an essential step in responsible sexual health management.

Mount Solon is an unincorporated community in Augusta County, Virginia, United States, 22 miles (35 km) southwest of Harrisonburg and 20 miles (32 km) north of Staunton. Mount Solon is located in the 6th US Congressional District. It is part of the Staunton–Waynesboro Micropolitan Statistical Area.

The earliest settlers of Mount Solon were the Scots-Irish and the Germans. In 1799, James Cochran, of minor notable political fame further south in North Carolina, established a small mill and residence on the small creek, which would eventually run through the center of town. Owing to the mill's and the town's centrality between the two growing markets of Harrisonburg and Staunton, several businesses sprang up, and the once-isolated town began to prosper. In the early 1900s, there existed a Ford dealership, a gas station, the Mount Solon Bank, Cochran's mill, and a few other shops gathered around an expanding downtown. Moreover, the ill-fated Chesapeake and Western Railroad (C&W) ran an important rail line through Mount Solon, thus ensuring secure connections to a variety of external agricultural markets throughout the region. The Great Depression, however, severely impacted both the Shenandoah Valley and the town of Mount Solon. Following the closure of the old mill in the late 1930s, many townspeople left Mount Solon in search of better jobs. When the C&W withdrew its support, and was later consolidated with Norfolk Southern, the once-thriving little town became a ghost town virtually overnight. Today, only a few dilapidated local shops remain in town and few indicators of Mount Solon's former glory days remain intact. The Old Mount Solon Bank presents a fine example of postbellum architecture and the recently restored Lincoln Manor House at Spring Meadows Farm provides an excellent illustration of a Shenandoah Valley plantation house.

Local lore says that around the first quarter of the 20th century, explosives were used to blow a hole in the northwest corner (newer brickwork repair visible in photo) during a robbery.

Long Glade Farm and the Mt. Zion Schoolhouse are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
