Sexual Health Test

According to the statistics, the number of sexually transmitted diseases has increased alarmingly. Therefore, it is important for everyone who has had sex to get tested. Often, people tend to ignore these tests because they do not see any explicit reason or symptoms. This could be a big mistake, as many of these diseases do not display any external signs until they are a few years old.

It is very simple to get a sexual health test done. You can get it done in any sexual health clinic, community clinic or by some general practitioners. You can search for these places with the help of internet, yellow pages or through friends. These clinics are equipped with the latest technologies that can screen and test for all possible sexual health issues.

It is always better to be prepared and know what kind of tests will be conducted. There is usually a urine test, a blood test and a physical inspection involved. You will also be asked a few questions. All this is done in a professional, efficient and cordial manner. The results of the test will take a few hours to few days.

If something is detected, you may need to go through further testing and the clinics will provide you will the proper form of treatment.

cause of penis injury or trauma may happen while having sex.

This kind of injury may happen to your penis when an erect penis accidentally slips out of the vagina and strikes it outside with force or thrust. When this happens, it may cause your penis to bend sharply. This often happens when the woman is on the top during the intercourse. You may experience a sharp pain, loss of erection and sometimes even hear a popping sound.

This pain is experienced due to a tear in the penis muscle, which is stretched during an erection. The injury is usually referred to as a penis fracture in medical terms- though the term literally is not accurate, as a penis does not have a bone. Other penis injuries have also been reported during sexual intercourse when sexual accessories and toys are used.

A majority of these penis injuries are not serious in nature and tend to heal without any medical treatment. However, sometimes a few complications may arise that may require a thorough checkup and treatment by an urologist. The treatment may involve anti-inflammatory medicines, cold compresses and pressure dressings, in most of the cases. In some, surgical treatment may be required. However, these are usually minor surgeries.

In case your penis is injured, do not hesitate to see a doctor, especially if the symptoms like pain or discomfort do not go away within time. There is no need to be embarrassed about a penis injury.
