Think you have an STD? There’s an app for that!!!
A new test will soon enable STDs to be diagnosed via your mobile phone or computer, a move that health experts hope will slow the rising rate of infection among young people.
According to bettyconfidential, mobile phones and computers will soon be able to diagnose sexually transmitted diseases under innovative plans to cut the UK’s rising rate of herpes, chlamydia and gonorrhoea among young people. Doctors and technology experts are developing small devices, similar to pregnancy testing kits, that will tell someone quickly and privately if they have caught an infection through sexual contact.
The developers of the rapid testing devices expect them to be sold for as little as 50p or £1 each in vending machines in nightclubs, pharmacies and in supermarkets, as condoms are.
