Good afternoon! Yes. Be sure to assess the microflora after each unprotected contact, even if a lot of time has passed. STIs are often hidden, without causing complaints. Therefore, only laboratory diagnostics can identify pathogens.

Answer 2

Hello !

Yes, even if nothing bothers you, it's worth taking:

✅ smear for STIs ( Chlamydia trachomatis, Mycoplasma genitalium , Trichomonas vaginalis, Neisseria gonorrhoeae),

✅ blood for hepatitis (B, C), HIV and syphilis.

Since infections can be asymptomatic, they can cause serious dysfunctions of the body, including reproductive functions.

if there are any concerns, it's worth it. There are many sexually transmitted diseases that are practically not accompanied by symptoms or are accompanied, but after a long time

Answer 4
April, 2021

A smear for STDs is worth taking, because, for example, chlamydia is often asymptomatic. The insidiousness of this infection lies in the fact that with untreated or untreated chlamydia during its prolonged course (3-6 months or more), adhesive disease develops. With adhesive disease, reproductive health is sharply reduced.

There is a point in taking tests for STDs. The time span is not a guarantee that there will be no infections. Unfortunately, the absence of any complaints is also not a priori a guarantee of the absence of infections. In particular, it is necessary to be examined if sexual contact was unprotected and with a new sexual partner.
