Our clinic routinely provides testing and treatment for sexually transmitted diseases. We partner with KNOWYO for testing vouchers for Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, and HIV.
Chlamydia/Gonorrhea: The CDC recommends annual screening for sexually active individuals 25 and younger, anyone with a new partner, or anyone with multiple partners. This test is usually done with a urine sample for males and females. We can also test for oral, rectal, or vaginal infections using a cotton swab. Treatment can be provided here when needed.
HIV: We offer a rapid HIV test with results in 20 minutes. Any positive result requires confirmatory testing through a local lab and referral for treatment when needed.
Trichomoniasis: We offer a rapid TRICH test that gives a result in 10 minutes. Treatment can be provided here when needed.
Syphilis: We offer a rapid Syphilis test that gives a result in 10 minutes. Any positive result requires a confirmatory test at a local lab and referral for treatment if needed.
Herpes: There is a blood test available for HSV 1 and 2, that is done through a local lab. This test is not routinely recommended for sexually active people who do not have symptoms or never had a herpes outbreak. A physical exam is recommended if symptoms are present.
HPV (Human Papillomavirus): Many people want to know if they carry HPV because they know it is so common and there are often no symptoms. However, there is not an easy and inexpensive screening tool for this infection. Women aged 21 and older can be screened for HPV with a pap smear.
