Free Confidential STD Testing and Treatment
Call to request your sexual wellness appointment today.
During your sexual wellness appointment, chlamydia and gonorrhea can be tested using a simple in-clinic vaginal self-swab. Additional tests to check for other STIs are performed by drawing blood.
Plan on spending between 60 and 90 minutes in our center. We will then be able to tell you how long the lab results will take to process.
The CDC recommends that those assigned female at birth in the following situations should be tested for chlamydia and gonorrhea every year:
- Those that are Pregnant
- Those that are Sexually active and younger than 25
- Those who have a new sexual partner
- Those who have multiple sex partners
Each new partner is a new risk of contracting an STI, and presents a risk of spreading any STI you have contracted to another. It is better to be tested and know than not.
The bacteria or virus may not be detectable for a few weeks after the exposure, and we recommend you allow at least 21 days post-exposure before coming in for a test.
This depends on how busy the lab is and the type of test we are asking to be run. Our staff will be able to give an estimate when you come in.
While we encourage all our STI testing clients to make an appointment prior to testing, there may occasionally be same day availability for walk-in clients. For us to serve you in the best way possible, please call us before coming in.
