If you are sexually active, it is usually recommended that you take an STI check to ensure that you are well aware of your sexual health. Although most people usually think that that STIs are easy to spot through the known symptoms, it is possible for you to contract and carry an STI without even realizing it. This is why it becomes important for you to take an STI test just to be sure. By taking the test, you get to learn the status of your sexual health and protect those you are sexually interacting with as well.
Who should take an STI Check?
As soon as you become sexually active, it is upon you to monitor your sexual health by taking STI tests from time to time. This is because each sexual interaction you have comes with a certain level of risk of contracting these infections. Some situations also call for an STI test as well. These include when you are about to start a new sexual relationship with someone new; after you have sexual relations without using protection; when the condom you are using during sex breaks or comes off. All these situations expose you to sexually transmitted infections, and make an STI test essential.

There are different STIs out there; the common ones include gonorrhea, HPV, trichomoniasis, HIV, Chlamydia, and syphilis among others. All STIs are usually checked using different tests including blood, urine and swab tests. The specific STI test to be conducted relies on the infection being tested for. As such, the medical practitioner conducting the test will have a variety of testing kits to collect the different bodily fluids on which the tests are to be conducted on. Once the test samples are collected, you will only have to wait for a short while before the results are communicated.
When taking an STI test, it is worth noting that some infections usually take longer to show in the blood or other bodily fluids. Some of the infections included here hepatitis and HIV. This means that you will have to take another test after a given amount of time to be sure. It is also worth stating that STI tests tend to be highly accurate. Where the test is negative, you can be sure that it is accurate; the reverse is also true. Once the test is done you and the results communicated, you can start planning for the future.

This test is used to gauge whether someone is suffering from folate or Vitamin B12 deficiency.
For people with a history of heart disease in the family in the absence of other risk factors such as being overweight or obese, high blood pressure or smoking; the test can be used in screening patients for stroke or heart attack.
CA 19.9 $67
Serum CA 19.9 levels are usually increased to about 80% among patients who are dealing with pancreatic cancer. They are also evident in 54-89% of patients with stomach cancer, while 65% for those who have colorectal cancer. From time to time, the serum level may also increase in benign conditions, such as acute and chronic pancreatitis, inflammatory bowel disease, cystic fibrosis, as well as hepatobillary tract disease. In benign disease, however, CA 19.9 generally does not go over 100U/ml.
HaemoglobinA1c, or HbAIc, is a diabetes marker, which may be used in long-term care monitoring for people who are suffering from diabetes. The level of HbA1c is directly proportional to the glucose level within the blood. It has been accepted widely as a determining factor that indicates the mean daily concentration of blood glucose throughout the preceding couple of months. According to recent studies, regular measurement and assessment of HbA1c results to the change in diabetes treatment, as well as the improvement of the metabolic control which is indicated with the lowering of the HbA1c valves.
CA 125 $67
This glycol protein is produced in several ovarian cancers. The levels of CA 125 that are above 335ng/ml have been detected in about 20-40% of patients who have State I and II ovarian cancers, as well as 96% of patients who have State III and IV of this disease. In less common situations, the levels can increase in patients who have cancers of the breast, gastrointestinal tract, endometrium, cervix, as well as the fallopian tube. The increase in levels may also be present in some benign conditions such as peritoneal inflammation and endometriosis. CA 125 is also helpful when it comes to monitoring individuals for treatment response and recurrence of tumour.
C-Reactive Protein $37
C-Reactive Protein (CRP) is a particular substance which is produced within the liver as a result of inflammation. CRP is also known as high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP), as well as ultra-sensitive C-reactive protein (us-CRP). With a high CRP level in the blood, there is a possibility of having a condition which can cause inflammation, ranging from the possibility of an upper respiratory infection to more serious conditions such as cancer. Higher levels of CRP can also be an indication of an inflammation in the heart arteries, swelling of the tissues that line the joints and infection of a bone. This, in turn, may pose a higher risk for heart attack. However, it is important to keep in mind, that CRP is a nonspecific test which may be elevated with any type of inflammatory condition.
CA 15.3 $67
The test for CA 15.3 is considered as a marker of tumour. It is often used in checking how treatment for breast cancer works, looking for cancer that has recurred post treatment. If you are being diagnosed with cancer of the breast, you may go through this test. It is not used for measuring early stage of breast cancer since the levels of this type of protein are only rarely higher than the normal levels within this stage.
PSA is a substance produced within the prostate gland. It is also highly useful when it comes to the diagnosis of prostate cancer, including the monitoring for spreading and recurrence of tumour in patients. Generally, a little amount of PSA can be found in the blood. Increase in the levels of PSA may be caused by benign prostatic or even prostate cancer.
HIV Antibody $27
The antibody screening test is considered as the most common HIV test, looking into the antibodies that is produced by the body against HIV. It may be done on oral or blood fluid, but not saliva. Since the antibody levels in the oral fluid is relatively lower as in the blood, majority of blood-based tests discover the infection sooner right after being exposed compared to rapid HIV tests.
