When people discuss sex nowadays, it is either openly accepted to an extreme or pitifully bashed. The most common responses involve the latter.
Though these conversations may make people uncomfortable, it’s important to identify our bodies’ natural functions and pay attention to any changes that may occur. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The hard part of this reality is that because so many people are uncomfortable with having these conversations, a lot of important information gets passed by.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Taking the time to get this information, could simply come from your doctor or a local clinic, but who wants the shame of walking into Planned Parenthood or testing clinic? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If this scenario is to be avoided, what is the first thing you do when you smell or see something weird down below? Hit the internet. So it’s no surprise that many companies have started putting this useful information online. Now there is even a way for you to send in a urine sample for STD testing and receive the results straight to your phone!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In the wake of technology helping bridge the gap between sex and health, an app to bring the doctors office straight to you, Biem, was created. Chief Executive, Bryan Stacy, created the company because he was a victim of avoiding the doctor. When he finally did go, he found out it was something very serious that possibly could have been treated a long time ago. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
With Biem, you are able to video chat with a doctor online to describe your symptoms. The doctor will recommend tests and someone can come to your house to collect them or you can go to a local lab. Once the results come in, you can open your Biem app and view them right there, as well as have follow-ups via the app just like the initial consultation. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Being more conscious and aware of your health has never been easier because now you literally have the doctor’s office in the palm of your hands. In 2018, there is no reason to NOT be STD free, especially if you wrap it up!
