What to Know about STD Testing
What happens during an std testing?
The test is a quick and efficient process in our Bridgeport office. Based off of your description of symptoms (sores, pain, discharge), sexual contact, and medical and sexual past, our professional staff will run tests to determine the cause. Our physicians will ask for a brief history of sexual activity in order to gain a larger idea of any contact with STDs. After this, the physicians will run a test. Because there is no one test that screens all STDs, different methods are used to determine each possible STD.
Depending on which test the physicians administer, testing will either be done straight in the Bridgeport office or in a lab that we send the sample to. While, we understand that STD or STI testing may be an uncomfortable topic, we recommend that you get tested if you feel any symptoms. Leaving an STD treated may allow for it to become a bigger problem.
Types of Testing:
*Urine or blood sample
*Swabs (mouth, genitals, sores, discharge)
Depending on which tests you have received, the sample will either be tested directly in our Bethel office or may be sent to an outside lab. It is not uncommon for patients to feel uncomfortable requesting a test for an STD or STI (sexually transmitted infection), but it is important to be tested if you’re experiencing any symptoms, as an untreated STD can cause further complications.
What Types of Treatment are available at DOCS Urgent Care of Bridgeport?
First, we can treat the following STD’s:
After our Bridgeport physicians diagnose your STD, you will be given options for treatment. If you are given a prescription for an antibiotic, we recommend that you carefully follow intake instructions regardless of how soon symptoms are relieved. Our physicians will work hard to find the best treatment for you and the protection of your health and your sexual partners’ health.
When Should You Get Tested?
If you are sexually active, have multiple sexual partners, have recently had unprotected sex, an infection or symptoms of any STD, we recommend a test. Each STD has a different incubation period. If you are not sure of the symptoms you feel or are unsure of whether or not you have come into contact with an STD, you should come into our Bridgeport office to determine further. Even if you show no symptoms, getting screened can allow you to be positive that you are STD-free and healthy.
