Attack on Fertility: Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STD) and the asymptomatic invisibility cloak

May 10, 2018

We all go through a stage in life where the thought of having kids is daunting, and for some people that feeling may never go. But what if? What if one day you wake up and you and your partner decide that it was time? What if, your right to make that decision is stolen from you…

INFERTILITY. The inability to reproduce by natural means. This very word for many shatters dreams. It threatens one’s sense of self, one’s relationship with others, and one’s ability to choose.

The scary thing about STIs is that they are often asymptomatic, meaning you won’t see or feel any symptoms. Often, you will be carrying an STI around with you for years without knowing it.

The reality of an STI for some women can be devastating. An STD such as Chlamydia or Gonorrhoea can occasionally fly under the radar, a symptomless invader of the Fallopian tubes, mounting a sneak attack over time which results in pelvic inflammatory disease (PID). PID is to be avoided; it inflicts permanent damage, scarring reproductive tissues which block the fallopian tubes, resulting in INFERTILITY.

Dudes, just because you don’t have a uterus doesn’t mean you get away Scott free either…. STIs can cause scarring in the reproductive tract causing an obstruction, meaning your little baby makers have no way of getting out or lowering your sperm count!

So the take home point. If you are sexually active, have an STI test, get checked! Don’t wait a couple of weeks, get tested now! It’s not worth gambling away your fertility!

With Well Revolution, you can do STI tests at home, see a doctor online and have any treatments or prescriptions delivered to your door.

Don’t risk your health!
