The Rise in STD’s From Online Dating 
 

Remember when it was considered normal to approach someone you wanted to get to know at the grocery store, or gym, with the intention to ask them out on a date? Nowadays this act is considered “creepy” not customary, and replaced by dating apps such as: Tinder, Bumble, Match, OkCupid and Grinder, just to name a few. These apps have an average user base in the United States by over 30M members, that’s under 10% of the total US population who use dating apps—yay for qualitative and quantitative analysis—kidding kidding..
We often accredit technology to make resources accessible, quicker, convenient, and on demand. As for dating apps, accessibility and access to what's considered and utilized as "customary," for “hooking up” “one-night-stands” and simply fly-by-night romance, is now the NORM. Not in every situation; in fact, there have been relationship success stories that can lead to marriage with additional data stating that over 30% of people searching for a partner typically meets online. Those days of feeling embarrassed to confessing to your family and friends you met someone online are over--fewwwww.
 

Swipe Right at Your Own Risk 

According to the CDC, about 30,000 new HIV infections occur every year; often times HIV can be symptomless for years or feeling like you have the case of the flu.

 
 

What your partner isn’t telling you on Tinder

With the popularly and accessibility of dating apps comes with the risks of accessing STD’s. In fact, STD’s are on the rise and spreading at a rapid rate. In one study researchers at the University of Minnesota were looking at the link between Craigslist personal ads and HIV, and identified an increase in HIV cases in 33 states between 1999 and 2008 — and determined that the advent of Craigslist alone contributed to a 16 percent increase in cases. In Nevada, a record number of syphilis cases last year were attributed to the “rise in anonymous sex via social media. The California state health department is increasingly hearing that people with STDs met their partners on sites like Tinder, Bumble, and Grinder. There is no doubt that apps are spreading STD’s all over the United States, such as Gonorrhea, Syphilis, Herpes, HPV, and even HIV.  In fact there are 1.1M Americans living with HIV, and of those infected people, 1 in 7 Americans have HIV and don’t even know they're infected. Yes, that one person you may have swiped right on that you plan on dating tomorrow.  
 

Case and Point 

Popular dating sites such as Tinder and Bumble don’t really do a good job educating the public on STI prevention, rather it’s the individuals own intuition and gut feelings to determine safety; who really thinks all that clear in the heat of the moment. New Century Labs promotes blood testing for folks who are sexually active who, engage in the world of online dating. We encourage  you to talk to your partner(s) to test their blood for STD’s, including HIV—just 1 blood test can save your health.
One of our customers who we will call Jane Doe called to express her fanatical experience with us about a man she had met on one of the mainstream dating sites, which we wont mention, where one of her conditions before she had an intimate relationship with him was to order STD tests and to share his results with her. Much to the gentlemen’s dismay he tested positive on various STD’s. Jane Doe was relived, saved, and empowered to have such awareness. Not everyone is like Jane Doe, and not everyone knows you can order your own blood tests online—we believe this type of access should be the duty of popular dating sites to help inform their audience. 
Symptoms and Facts
According to the CDC, about 30,000 new HIV infections occur every year; often times HIV can be symptomless for years or feeling like you have the case of the flu. Just because you have the case of the flu doesn’t mean you have HIV. However with dating apps comes with higher risks of getting infected.
Every year there are over 2M Americans with cases of gonorrhea and Syphilis which are the most common and treatable STD’s, with long term health problems if not caught early. Symptoms include fever, chills, skin sores, and pain in the wrists, fingers, knees, or toes. Gonorrhea: Asexually transmitted infection that may lead to pelvic inflammatory disease, infertility, and arthritis.
According to the CDC about 25% of women have genital herpes and 10% males. This does not include oral herpes and nearly 80% of sexually active people will contract HPV in some point in their lives.
Over all 1 in 2 people will contract some form of STD by the time they are 25 years old costing our US healthcare system over $16B dollars.
Getting Tested
Our company slogan means what is said: “Don’t Just Think You’re Healthy, Know You’re Healthy.”  This is truly a lifestyle- our employees and customers  truly live by this mindset, as we want to share access to STD testing and awareness to all who plan on being sexually active on dating sites. Don’t feel shy to request your partner to get tested, as this could save your health and the health of others.
We know that getting blood tests is a daunting task traditionally. Let’s face it you were raised to call your doctor’s office, make an appointment that could take weeks, confess to your doctor all those uncomfortable conversations.
With access to ordering STD blood tests on demand, on your terms at NewCenturLabs.com, we believe you will be much more motivated to order your STD tests, so you can have a meaningful conversation with your doctor, and your partner about the state of your health.

Spread the love by not spreading diseases.
