What to Know About STD Testing
What happens during an STD Testing?
Come into our office any day of the week because STD testing is a simple procedure. You can call ahead for an appointment or come in as a walk-in. We make a note of whether you have current symptoms, your medical and sexual history, along with your most recent sexual activity.
Our medical team asks about your symptoms and sexual activity for a greater understanding of whether your previous partners possibly had STDs and if so, which ones. STDs don’t have a blanket test, which means each one has to be tested for separately. The combined information allows us to make a general determination before conducting your testing.
Types of Testing:
*Urine or blood sample
*Swabs (mouth, genitals, sores, discharge)
Many of the obtained specimens can be tested in our Southington, CT clinic but some will need to be sent to a local lab for testing, which takes around a week to get the results. We understand that coming in for an STD/STI test is probably embarrassing or stressful. However, if you begin to have unexplainable symptoms such as sores, rashes, or warts, then we strongly urge you to visit us for a test. When STDs are not treated in time, then they can often evolve into something else that puts your overall health at risk.

The medical experts in our Southington, CT facility are here to offer you the best possible services to protect the well being of you and your partners.
When Should You Get Tested?
If you’re sexually active, have several sexual partners, had unprotected sexual relations, or feel any symptoms, then visit us for an STD/STI test in our Southington, CT walk-in facility. Every disease progresses on a separate timeline. If you continue waiting, it will progress into something far worse. Even if you’re not sure if you’ve contracted the STD you were exposed to, our team of medical experts is here to properly test you and assist you with your next moves.
