STI Testing and Treatment
We provide testing for thre three most common STIs - Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, and Trichomoniasis. Testing can be performed on the same urine sample that you provide for your pregnancy test, or we can provide this limited STI/STD testing as a single service. If you test positive for one of these infections, treatment is available at no cost to you. Testing and treatment referral appointments are also available for your partner if your test is positive.
STDS, STIS AND YOUR HEALTH
Every year in the U.S. there are an estimated 20 million new STD infections, and nearly half of all new STD cases occur in people ages 15 to 24. Anyone who is sexually active is at risk for contracting an STD, no matter what form of birth control you use.
An estimated half of all sexually active unmarried people will get an STD before the age of 25. Many people who are infected don’t know they are. Even if you haven’t experienced any symptoms, you may still need to get tested.
when should I get tested?
You need to get tested if:
you've recently had unprotected sex
you've had a change in partners
you have experienced itching or burning in your pelvic area
you have scheduled an abortion
You may need to get tested even if you have no symptoms or consistently use a condom. Sex always carries the risks of STIs and STDs, even oral and anal sex. Note: STD Testing is provided for women patients only at this time.
