STD Testing Q & A

Why would I need STD testing?

Sexually transmitted disease (STD) testing is a recommended preventive strategy to identify existing infections that you can transmit through sex.

The team of providers at The Women's Center offers in-office STD testing for a variety of common STDs, including:

  • Herpes
  • Chlamydia
  • Gonorrhea
  • Syphilis
  • Hepatitis
  • HIV and AIDS
  • Human papillomavirus (HPV)

You can have an infection without any symptoms and pass on STDs through unprotected oral, vaginal, and anal sex. Without treatment, some STDs can lead to serious, long-term health issues, including organ damage, pregnancy complications, and infertility.

The providers recommend routine STD testing for anyone who’s sexually active, especially if you have multiple partners or any time you have unprotected sex.

What happens during STD testing?

STD testing strategies differ based on the disease your provider is trying to identify. The Women's Center providers offer on-site urine testing for conditions like chlamydia and gonorrhea and blood work for herpes and HIV.

The physicians also provide pelvic exams and can collect a sample of tissue to test for HPV. A pelvic exam also helps identify visible signs of an STD, such as genital warts.

If your STD testing shows you have an infection, the team offers comprehensive treatment services to clear your infection and prevent serious complications.

What treatments are available for sexually transmitted diseases?

Many STDs respond to medications. The Women's Center team can prescribe a course of antibiotics to treat conditions like gonorrhea, chlamydia, and syphilis, or antivirals to treat herpes and HIV. 

Your provider can also help you notify your sexual partners and provide you with educational resources to help prevent new infections. They continue to monitor the progress of your treatment to ensure your infection clears and that you can no longer spread the infection to others.

To reduce your risk factors for STDs, you should use a condom each time you have sex and schedule routine STD testing if you have more than one partner.

If you need STD testing following unprotected sex, request an appointment at The Women’s Center, PC, online, or call the office nearest you today.
