What to Know About STD Testing

What happens during an STD Testing?

Our Hamden, CT clinic always allows walk-ins for STD testing since it’s a relatively fast procedure. We start by getting your information about your current and past sexual history. Even though certain STDs can be distinguished based on a visual evaluation, most require additional testing. Several samples are examined in our clinic while others have to be sent to a local lab to be tested.

Presuming your sexual partner has passed an STD to you can be greatly disturbing but don’t hold off until you start to show symptoms to come in for a test. No matter if you have questions or require testing, our medical staff can help you with your problems. Our complete STD testing is conveniently available with no appointment needed.

Types of Testing:

*Urine or blood sample

*Swabs (mouth, genitals, sores, discharge)

*Physical exam

We have a straightforward approach when it comes to STD testing. We begin by gathering your general health information, including your current and previous sexual activity. While some conditions can be identified based on the skin’s appearance such as Herpes or Genital Warts (HPV), others are not as apparent. We take samples and test the specimen once we are through. Often we have the results in the same visit so we can send you home with your treatment.

What Types of Treatment Are Available In Our Hamden Urgent Care?

First, we can treat the following STD’s:

**HIV/AIDS

*Chlamydia

*Syphilis

*Gonorrhea

 

*Hepatitis C

*HPV

*Herpes

Of course, many STD tests are unable to be analyzed during the same visit. If it can’t be determined the same day, we will contact you once we’ve received your results. Testing is always done confidentially to preserve the privacy of our patients. If you have any concerns or questions about your treatment, please talk with our medical staff in our Hamden, CT office.

When Should You Get Tested?

STDs can be spread in many ways by both men and women. Take proper precautions to minimize your own risk. Regularly use protection when having sexual relations. Avoid having multiple partners and unprotected sex. If you suspect that you have been infected with an STD, cease having sexual relations and come in for a test at DOCS Urgent Care in Hamden, CT.
