What to Know About STD Testing
What happens during an STD Testing?
We encourage you to come by our office for a walk-in appointment to get your STD testing. It’s typically a routine procedure that’s over before you know it. The whole process consists of one of our experts speaking with you to gather information such as your medical history, any symptoms, and your previous and current sexual activity. We try to collect enough details so that we can narrow down the possible STDs you might have contracted.
Once we’ve gathered your information and evaluated your signs of infection, we then determine the type of test you should be given. Since there isn’t a single STD test that can be used for all STDs, each one needs to be individually tested in order to identify it.
Types of Testing:
*Urine or blood sample
*Swabs (mouth, genitals, sores, discharge)
Many of the test samples can be evaluated in our Waterbury, CT clinic while other specimens will be taken to a local lab to obtain the results. It’s vital to come in for STD testing even if you don’t have any symptoms. It might be embarrassing but it’s better to be armed with knowledge and a treatment method than to allow an infection to cause more problems by spreading.
What Types of Treatment Are Available In Our Waterbury Urgent Care?
First, we can treat the following STD’s:
Once we understand which STD we need to treat, we will give you the options. If you’re given an antibiotic, be certain to complete the entire prescribed amount even if you don’t have any more symptoms. If you don’t complete the treatment then it could rebound, sometimes stronger than when you first contracted it. Speak with one of our physicians in our Waterbury, CT clinic for more information regarding our treatments.
When Should You Get Tested?
People, who are currently sexually active, have had unprotected sex, more than one partner, or have any unidentified symptoms, should come to our Waterbury, CT clinic to get a test for STDs. In many instances, the person is not even aware they’ve been infected with an STD. Some people don’t have any visible signs of an STD, which is why it’s even more important to get tested for STDs.
