Sexual Healthcare

Adults who are sexually active need to play an active role in their health. Failing to do so puts not only yourself but your partners at risk. At New York Medicine Doctors, we want to keep all of our patients protected and healthy. That is why our team is happy to offer sexual healthcare as one of our many services.

Common STDs/STIs

Taking part in safe sex offers the best chance of protection from the various STDs/STIs you can contract. This means always wearing a condom during intercourse. However, even if you are safe, transmission can still take place. Some of the most common STDs/STIs a male can face includes:

  • Chlamydia.
  • Genital herpes or warts.
  • Gonorrhea.
  • Syphilis.
  • Hepatitis B and C.
  • HIV.

How Often Should You Be Tested?

One of the most significant portions of sexual health care is being tested and screened for STDs/STIs. While some people may think this only needs to be done when displaying symptoms, this is not the case. There are times when people can be asymptomatic carriers, meaning they can pass along STDs/STIs to their partners without even knowing. To avoid this, we highly recommend being screened at least once a year.  

STD/STI Treatment And Prevention

When you contract an STD or STI, it’s essential to get treatment right away. Leaving it unchecked can lead to serious health complications, sometimes including infertility. Seeking our quick treatment also ensures that you do not pass it on to any of your partners. Here at New York Medicine Doctors, we’ll provide you with the treatment you need to eliminate your condition and get you back to full health. We can also give you information on how to prevent them from happening, which includes the below:

  • Abstinence.
  • Getting certain vaccinations.
  • Limiting your number of sexual partners.
  • Always using a condom.
