Whether you’ve begun to notice some alarming symptoms, have been diagnosed with an STD, or are researching for a project – welcome to STDHelp, a website devoted to bringing you up-to-date and accurate information and answers to your questions.
Here at STDHelp you will discover a plethora of thorough articles detailing transmission, symptoms, and what you can expect from your doctor while they’re working to diagnose you and then moving on to treatment. With accurate information on your side you can go to your doctor with the ability to detail your exact concerns, and the knowledge of what tests you can request to help put your mind at ease.
Another great feature of STDHelp is our bustling community, full of members just like you looking to talk to someone who has experienced what they’re going through and share their experiences with those new to the diagnosis. With the support of a strong community of knowledgeable companions, you can begin to understand what to expect in the future straight from others diagnosed with the same STDs.
At STDHelp, you’ll also find reviews of dating sites that help to link those diagnosed with others of the same diagnosis – and reviews of sites aimed at helping those afraid to go to a clinic receive a diagnosis without the anxiety of going to a doctor and having to list your personal sexual history.
If you still have questions after going through STDHelp’s information, you can find a full list of links to more information on the CDC site itself, and a hotline number you can call if you need to talk to someone immediately who’s knowledgeable and ready to listen – any time you feel you may be in what’s termed “crisis” (a feeling of uncontrolled panic, usually) you should feel free to call that number any time day or night to speak to someone who can help you work through those feelings.
While reading the many articles on the site, you may find yourself wondering “what does this look like? How can I be sure I don’t already have this?” Fortunately, there’s an area dedicated to answering that question. With links to multiple videos offering further information on topics like applying a condom and what happens when HIV becomes AIDs, and images illustrating exactly what almost every STD’s visible signs are, the Media section of STDHelp can give you a visual aid to help answer those concerned questions.
Please feel free to join our helpful community and post any questions you have, we’re always glad to welcome new members – whether you be a concerned man or woman who thinks you may have an STD and want some second opinions, someone who has just been diagnosed and wants a place to vent during the treatment process, or someone working on a school project who wants some first-hand accounts for your presentation.
