Why should I get tested? 

One in two sexually active young people will get a STD by the age of 25. Many infections may not show any signs or symptoms.

How does it work?  

The samples we will test are self-collected vaginal swabs or urine specimens.

Who can get tested?  

Anyone can get tested. Testing is free no matter your insurance status.

What should I bring?  

Bring yourself. It’s okay to come with another person if that makes you more comfortable. 

After you've been tested for STDs:

1. The sample gets tested.

2. You will be notified by phone with the results a few days after testing.

3. If the result is negative, reduce your risk by practicing safer sex methods and be aware of potential STD symptoms. If the result is positive, we will discuss a treatment plan and send prescriptions to your preferred pharmacy.

4. The prescription can be picked up and you can begin your treatment. We have the ability to treat your partner(s) as well, this is called expedited partner therapy (EPT). If you are participating in EPT, your partner(s) medications may also be filled and picked up for their treatment.
