Even if using protection, it is still possible to contract a sexually transmitted disease (STD). If you are sexually active, it is vital to get tested for STDs. We offer testing for Gonorrhea and Chlamydia at no cost to you. If you are coming in for a pregnancy test, we can offer STD testing at the same time.
Sexually transmitted diseases have some common symptoms that can identify their presence. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, you should seek medical attention.
Symptoms may include:
- Itching of the genitals
- Odorous or discolored discharge
- Bumps or sores
It is important to note that many STDs are “silent”, meaning they present no symptoms. If left untreated, STDs can cause significant harm to your body. Be sure to get tested to protect your health and prevent the spread of STDs.
STD testing if you think you may be pregnant
If you think you may be pregnant, it is crucial to get tested for STDs. Having an STD while you are pregnant is dangerous to your health and puts the pregnancy at risk. If you are considering abortion, it is also essential to be tested for STDs. Having an abortion with an STD puts you at risk of spreading the infection to other areas.
