It is very important to be healthy, and to keep all the systems in our body healthy. Sadly, the some people do not think much of the medical prevention, thus exposing themselves to certain medical conditions that could have been easily avoided if some prevention was used.
Preventing and not preventing
There are simply not enough strong words to emphasize the importance of a proper health prevention. Simple example is eating. Eat healthy and within normal range (when it comes to the amount) and the body weight will be ok, and some things like heart problems, diabetes and depression are avoided (at least from obesity as a cause). Of course, this is a lot easier said than done, but it is something that needs to be done for the health to be constantly present. Another example is more serious one. We are talking about STD, sexual transmitted diseases. Those conditions can prove to be very dangerous if left untreated and applying health prevention here is of utmost importance. This means that STD testing cost is actually of no importance, it is something that needs to be done if someone suspects there is STD in the organism present.
There is one little thing that can solve almost all problems related to STD, by simply not allowing STD to happen in the first place. And that is the use of condoms all the time, without any exceptions, for both men and women. And we are not talking about medical conditions only; there is also a situation that involves pregnancy, which can happen with the unsafe sex. As for STD, those are conditions that are transmitted with the exchange of the body fluids. The problem is that sometimes some people are usually not even aware of the existing problem. This is particularly emphasized in men, since there are simply no symptoms, no itching, redness etc. This means that a sexual partner can get affected without even knowing it. Also, we can say that more or less, all STD can be dealt with modern medicine. All but one.
This is the main reason why prevention has to be included in sexual intercourse. Only if partners trust each other and have undergone medical examination, no prevention is needed. In all other situations, prevention is needed, and the use of condoms is strongly recommended. Only a condom can successfully prevent the occurrence of STD and HIV too. As previously said, STD can be dealt with, but HIV is something else. It can stay dormant in a person's body and become active at any moment. It works by disabling the immune system of the patient, which makes a patient not able to defend from simple medical problems, like flu. And that leads to a tragic end.
