STI Testing and Treatment
At New Beginnings Women’s Center, testing for gonorrhea and chlamydia 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. We are temporarily only able to test women who do not have insurance or Medicaid.
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.
We believe sexual health is more than just the results of STD testing and a stringent birth control regimen.
Our caring client advocates understand the private nature and complexities of sexual health issues. That's why we offer free counseling, sexual health education, and interactive educational opportunities that will help you achieve your overall health goals.
We are here for you with compassionate care and a safe, confidential place to talk about relationships and sexual health.
STD Testing is provided for women only at this time.
