What to Know about STD Testing
What happens during an std testing?
STD testing is quick and easy. Our testing and results are based on your symptoms sores, pain, discharge), medical history, type of sexual contact, and sexual history. Our physicians will ask a few questions to assess your symptoms; this includes a brief history of your sexual history necessary to better understand your potential contacts with STDs. After a general assessment, they will run a test. There is no single STD test, as different methods are utilized to diagnose different STDs.
Depending on your personal testing method, your sample may be tested in our New Milford office or sent to the lab for further results. While we do understand that coming in for an STD or STI (Sexually Transmitted Infection) can be an uncomfortable experience, it is extremely important to get tested, especially if you are feeling symptoms. Untreated STDs can cause further unwanted complications.
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.

Your treatment options will depend on your STD diagnosis. If you are prescribed antibiotics by one of our physicians, it is best to follow all intake instructions, even if you stop feeling symptoms during the course of your antibiotics. We will find the right treatment to help protect your health and the health of future sexual partners.
When Should You Get Tested?
It is best to get tested if you are sexually active, have or have had multiple sexual partners, or have recently had unprotected sex. Different STDs take different amounts of time to show symptoms (incubation periods). If you are unsure which STD you have or feel symptoms, it is in your best interest to get tested by one of our physicians as soon as possible, so that we can help pinpoint your diagnosis and treat it quickly. Even if you have no visible symptoms, it is best to get tested after partaking in any of these activities to ensure that you have not contracted anything.
