Sexually Transmitted Disease (STD) Services

Many people with STD’s do not have any symptoms at all; that is why it is important to get regular testing. Our STD clinic offers confidential, low cost HIV and STD testing, counseling and treatment for adults and teens. Note: Parental permission is not required for STD testing for teens.

Testing


Our STD clinic tests for:
  • Chlamydia
  • Gonorrhea
  • Hepatitis C
  • HIV
  • Syphilis
Our STD clinic treats all positive test result and contacts for Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, Syphilis and contacts whose partners have tested positive for Trichomoniasis. Please do not urinate for one hour prior to getting tested for Chlamydia and Gonorrhea.

How Long to Wait Before STD Testing


The time it takes from infection to having symptoms is different for each STD. It can take from days to several weeks, and it is important to know that most STD’s have no symptoms at all.

For Chlamydia and Gonorrhea testing, it is important to wait three weeks after a possible exposure to get tested. For HIV testing, it is important to wait at least four weeks after a possible exposure to get tested.

For Chlamydia and Gonorrhea testing antibiotics can cause the results to be inaccurate. Please wait three weeks after you have finished antibiotics to be tested.
