What to Know About STD Testing
What happens during an STD Testing?
We invite you to stop by our office for a walk-in visit for your STD testing because it’s a rapid procedure. The process includes one of our professionals taking down any symptoms, medical history, sexual history, and your current sexual activity. We try to gather as much information so that we have a good idea as to which partner possibly gave you STDs. It’s helpful and responsible to narrow it down.
After we’ve assessed your initial symptoms to develop a general idea then we conduct the appropriate test. Since there isn’t a blanket STD test, each one needs to be tested separately.
Types of Testing:
*Urine or blood sample
*Swabs (mouth, genitals, sores, discharge)
The test process won’t take long and some can be evaluated in our Stamford, CT clinic while other samples need to be sent to a lab to get the results. We understand that coming in might be uncomfortable but it’s absolutely necessary. It’s especially imperative to come in for STD testing if you currently have symptoms. If you don’t tend to it promptly then it might progress into something worse.

After identifying your STD, we will give you the list of treatment options. Remember, if we give you medicine to treat your STD then it’s important to complete your treatment.

The medical experts in our Stamford, CT walk-in clinic strive to deliver top-notch healthcare for you and your partners.
