What to Know About STD Testing
What happens during STD Testing?
When you’re ready to obtain your comprehensive STD test, visit our West Haven, CT walk-in clinic. We know that the thought of possibly having an STD seems alarming but our caring staff is here to answer all of your questions regarding STDs and the testing process.
Before we begin, we take down all of the information related to your sexual activity, medical history, and any type of symptoms. Occasionally, we recommend that you obtain a full panel of STD tests to eliminate the infection of all STDs, particularly if you don’t have any symptoms. If you believe you have caught an STD, please avoid sexual activity and get tested as soon as possible.
Types of Testing:
*Urine or blood sample
*Swabs (mouth, genitals, sores, discharge)
We take the information we’ve collected from you to form a general idea of the type of STD you may have been exposed to before we give you a test. Once we have it narrowed down then we carry out a physical exam and draw your labs for your STD test. Many of the samples we collect can be assessed in our office. If the obtained specimen is sent to a local lab for testing then the results usually arrive in about a week.
