The thought of having an STD or STI can be concerning, but rest assured, we can help you with no-cost testing and treatment. Many STDs have no immediate symptoms, which is why people put off testing.

Are You Stressed Over STDs?
We’ve all had moments when we’ve been stressed. Luckily, in this case, scheduling STD testing is your first plan of action.
After scheduling, take some deep breaths and release the tension. There’s nothing more you can do until your appointment.
However, if you believe you may have an STD, prevent spreading it by abstaining from any sexual activity until after you test negative or complete treatment.
If you test positive, it’s important to ensure your partner also gets tested and treated for STDs to prevent reinfection in the future and for his own health and well-being.
Chlamydia and Gonorrhea Testing
Chlamydia and gonorrhea are two common bacterial STDs. We test for them at our center. Both of these are treated with a course of antibiotics. It is important to get tested and treated quickly to prevent any complications like pelvic inflammatory disease.
If there’s a chance you might have other STDs, we can refer you for further testing.
Note: If you complete treatment for gonorrhea and still have symptoms a few days later, you will want to visit a healthcare provider to ensure the infection has fully cleared.
How to Prevent STDs in the Future
You might wonder how to prevent STDs in the future.
According to the CDC, abstinence is the most reliable way to avoid infection. Also, being in a mutual monogamous relationship with someone without STDs can prevent infection.
