It wasn’t very long ago when people who wanted STD testing and treatment, had to go to a public health clinic where there were long lines and not much privacy. Today, urgent care clinics have taken the place of many traditional STD testing and treatment centers.
Confidential and Compassionate STD Testing and Treatment
The specter of public health STD testing and treatment discourages many people who know or suspect that they should be screened from getting these services. Our clinic offers professional, compassionate, and confidential screening services for many sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), including:
- HPV (Human Papillomavirus)
We also offer vaccines that prevent transmission of HPV, which are recommended for children the age of 11 and older.
Who Should Receive STD Testing and Treatment?
Anyone who has engaged in unprotected sexual contact should be screened for an STD because, unfortunately, just one exposure can be enough to infect a person. Sexual contact includes vaginal, anal, and oral intercourse.
Contact us for STD treatment and testing if you’ve had multiple sex partners, or discovered you might be infected. Many people ask new partners to be tested for STDs, or if they decide to be exclusive and not use condoms.
There is absolutely no shame in seeking STD testing. Many newly pregnant women decide to be tested; in fact, some states require obstetricians to run the test, with or without the woman’s permission.
STDs are Rising in the US
The US Government reported more STD cases than ever before, and the numbers are rising — 2.3 million cases of gonorrhea, chlamydia, and syphilis reported to CDC for 2017. Gonorrhea and syphilis cases are increasing at particularly alarming rates.
