Free & confidential for all genders.
Std Testing and Treatment is free and confidential for all genders. We test for the most common STDs: Chlamydia and Gonorrhea. We also test for Syphilis, and HIV when indicated.
If you are sexually active—whether you have had oral, anal, vaginal intercourse or genital touching—you can get a sexually transmitted disease (STD). The Center for Disease Control estimates that nearly 20 million new sexually transmitted infections occur every year in America alone. Half of those are among people ages 15–24.
Have I Been Exposed To An STD?
If you have engaged in sexual activity, you have been exposed to the possibility of an STD. While some STDs have some symptoms, not all are obvious. Some may have no symptom and even some symptoms are not obvious. Some STDs can cause a change in discharge, burning with urination or genital sores. If left untreated, some can even lead to infertility. The only way to know for sure if you have an STD is to get tested. When sexually active, it’s advised you get tested at least once a year.
Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) and sexually transmitted infections (STIs) are very common. In fact, there are over 110 million cases in the U.S. with 20 million new infections each year. Prevalence estimates suggest that young people aged 15-24 years acquire half of all new STDs and that 1 in 4 sexually active adolescent females have an STD, such as Chlamydia or Human Papillomavirus (HPV).
The Centers for Disease Control recommends STD testing for all sexually active people, and treatment right away if your test is positive. The infections associated with this epidemic are all preventable.
If left undetected and untreated, STDs and STIs can increase your risk of acquiring another STD, and cause serious medical complications including painful sores, heart disease, cancer, birth defects and more. Early identification and treatment are key to the prevention and management of these outcomes.
With early detection, all STDs are treatable and most STIs are curable. Our holistic reproductive health care program includes STD/STI testing for Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, Syphilis and HIV. If your test is positive, we may treat you in the office for Chlamydia and Gonorrhea. Referrals will be made for other infections.
Do not have sex during treatment of an STD. Notify all sex partners that you have an STD so they can be tested and treated. You should be re-tested for STDs 3 months after finishing treatment.
If you are sexually active and have not yet received STD/STI testing or have questions about your reproductive health, we can help. Call or text us today for an appointment.
