Which STD's are covered in this STD Panel test?

Sexually transmitted infections (STIs), also known as sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), are infections that are primarily spread through sexual contact. They can affect both men and women, and their symptoms can vary widely.
The tests covered in this panel include:
  1. HIV Test - Checks for HIV/AIDS Virus
  2. Hepatitis B Test - Checks for Hepatitis B Virus Affecting Liver
  3. Hepatitis C Test - Checks for Hepatitis C Virus Affecting Liver
  4. Herpes Simplex 2 Test - Checks for Herpes Virus known to cause warts around genital area
  5. Chlamydia Antibody Test - Checks for Chlamydia a common STD, that causes discharge
  6. Syphilis Test - Checks for the bacteria causing Syphilis an STD that causes a painless wound on intimate areas

Viral Sexually Transmitted Diseases

These include 4 major infections described in the table below:

Disease Description
Herpes Simplex Virus (HSV) HSV is of two types - HSV-1 often causes oral cold sores, while HSV-2 is typically associated with genital herpes. Both types can cause sores or blisters in the genital or oral areas, and the virus remains in the body for life.
HIV/AIDS HIV attacks the immune system, weakening the body's ability to fight infections. AIDS is the advanced stage of HIV infection. While there is no cure, antiretroviral therapy (ART) can manage the virus and delay the progression to AIDS.
Hepatitis B Hepatitis B virus (HBV) can lead to acute or chronic liver infections. It is spread through contact with infected blood, semen, or other bodily fluids. Vaccination is available to prevent HBV infection.
Hepatitis C Hepatitis C virus (HCV) primarily infects the liver and can lead to chronic liver disease. It is also transmitted through contact with infected blood and lacks a preventive vaccine.

Bacterial Sexually Transmitted Diseases

These include diseases that are bacterial in nature

Disease Description
Chlamydia Caused by the bacterium Chlamydia trachomatis, chlamydia can affect the genital tract, urethra, and rectum. Symptoms may include genital pain, discharge, and burning during urination. It can lead to serious complications if left untreated, such as pelvic inflammatory disease and infertility.
Syphilis Caused by the bacterium Treponema Pallidum, syphilis starts as a chancre or an ulcer on the initmate area, and later on spreads to other parts of the body like the heart, and even the brain. The disease can be completely cured if treated appropriately.

Infections Not Covered

HPV and Gonorrhea are not included in our panel as HPV requires a scraping from the abscess/lesion on your intimate part, and Gonorrhea also requires a swab to be taken from discharge that you may have. These samples are collected by gynecologists or venereal disease doctors, only when there are grounds to suspect these infections. As such they are not routinely tested

How soon does this STD Test Panel detect infections?

Our STD Package is a screening test that is aimed at screening and early diagnosis of STD Infections. Each Virus has a different timeline of how soon it can be detected.

While HIV can be detected from the 3rd week onwards, antibodies for Hepatitis C and Chlamydia and even Syphilis can take longer, upto 6 months.

The panel can detect infections provided there is a minimum time from exposure. We use state of the art 4th generation tests and antibody assays as well as double test methods in some cases, to ensure best possible and accurate results.

HIV Test - Detects after minimum 3 weeks

The 4th generation HIV Test (WHO Approved) that we use, has a minimum detection period of 21 days. The sensitivity of the test keeps improving after this point in time. If you were infected less than 21 days ago, the test may be falsely negative.

Hepatitis B - Upto 3 months

The hepatitis B antigen can be detected reliably after around 10-12 weeks of exposure.

Hepatitis C, Syphilis, Chlaymydia - Upto 6 months

The hepatitis C antibodies can be detected from around 3-6 months after exposure.

Herpes Simplex Virus - Igm Antibodies - Minimum 3 weeks to 1 month

Antibodies to HSV2 or herpes simplex viurs 2 can be detected around 10-21 days at earliest. These antibodies may not be present after the infection has been cured but can also persist.

Is this the Right STD Test Panel for you in Pune?

Our STD Panel Test is for you if you suspect that you may have been exposed to an STD or STI recently. While screening guidelines vary, here are the main reasons to consider yourself an ideal candidate

You had unprotected intimate contact with a partner whose status you do not know

Unprotected intimate contact can transmit a variety of STD's. All the STD's in our package are the most common STD's that are transmitted. While Hepatitis B is the most easily transmissible viral infection, Chlamydia and Herpes to may spread. Hepatitis C has a lower propensity for transmission but is usually to be ruled out.

You were exposed to body fluids like saliva, semen, or vaginal secretions, or blood from a know carrier

Different body fluids have different chances of transmitting STD's. Semen and vaginal secretions have higher viral concentrations, while blood is also well capable of transmitting these infections. If a body fluid splashed on you or your intimate parts or more seriously on a cut or bruise that you have, you should consider yourself to get tested.

You received a blood transfusion from an unknown source, or one whose status was unclear

Blood transfusions are a very common source of STD's since blood is usually transfused in sufficiently large amounts to cause a sizable viral load to enter your body. If you had a blood transfusion and are unsure about the protocols at that facility, you should get yourself tested.

How to Prepare for STD Tests in Pune?

STD Tests require little to no preparation on your part as a patient. However follow the basic preparation rules for any blood test like keeping your arms clean. If you are scheduled for a urine test make sure to collect the first morning, mid-stream sample.

How to prepare for blood tests for STDs?

To prepare for the blood tests (HIV, Hbsag, hcv, and others), make sure to first sign the consent form. Clean your arms/forearms with soap and water. If you have booked a home visit, make sure to sit in a comfortable stool or chair, and have good illumination when the lab technician is drawing your sample. No special preparation like fasting is required for these tests.

How to prepare for PCR/Molecular urine tests for STDS?

Urine tests for STD's require the first morning mid-stream or clean catch sample. This means, voiding the initial part of your urine and collecting the middle 20 ml. Make sure to follow the guidelines for collecting any urine sample like cleaning your external genitalia and avoiding the contamination of soaps or detergents.

Counselling Before the STD Test

Pre-test counselling is mandatory in India as per national guidelines for HIV, Hepatits B and HCV. We have dedicated online resources to help patients understand the test they are undergoing. These can found at the following links

Things to Remember - Confusing Isuses about the STD Panel

Remember that any STD Panel Test is only a screening test. This means that you may be carrying some of these infections, that we may not be able to detect due to the window period. There are also things to remember about Gonorrhea and Human Papilloma Virus

Why is Gonorrhea Test not included?

The Gonorrhea bacteria are usually found in the urine or in discharge from your intimate parts. The Gonorrhea test is isually done on a swab that contains the discharge and it is not done on blood. Gonorrhea can also be tested using PCR or molecular assays. You can check out our Urine STD Panel for the same.

What about the HPV or Human Papilloma Virus Test?

HPV Is usually tested on scrapings taken from warts on your intimate areas. These scrapings are done by Skin doctors or gynecologists and sent to the lab. Another possibility to test for HPV is from a special scraping device meant to be used by gynecologists. Testing for HPV is not routinely done in the blood and so we do not include this in our primary package. You can check out our HPV test page for more information.

Can I test for HIV if i was infected very recently?

The 4th generation HIV test that is a part of our panel, will only give accurate results after 3-6 weeks as mentioned above. Recent infections may not be detected. For very recent infections check out our HIV-RNA Profile Page.

If I already tested negative for HIV should I test again?

If you already had a 4th generation test within the last 6 weeks, it may not be very useful to test again. If your last test was more than 2-3 months ago, and you suspect you had a very likely exposure, you can definitely test again.

If I test negative for HIV, does that mean I don't need to do the other STD Panel tests?

Testing negative for one virus does not mean that you do not have the other infections.
