Our friendly and professional staff will be able to answer all your questions regarding STD testing. We can also provide a full consultation with our clinicians (with an appointment) before and after your testing if you wish. Our clinicians can offer you all the treatment options if needed.
Why go to a STD clinic where you also can’t get treatment? We provide both testing and treatment.
In addition, we carry vaccines that can help prevent certain STDs such as:
All our locations are located in storefront clinics in retail shopping centers, so often you can park right in front of our clinic.
Chlamydia is the most common bacterial STD in the United States. Most people that have Chlamydia have no symptoms, but if symptoms occur, it is usually 1-3 weeks after exposure.
Gonorrhea is a very common bacterial STD. Any sexually active person can become infected with Gonorrhea. Some men and women with gonorrhea have no symptoms. If symptoms do occur in men, they may include burning with urination, discharge from the opening of the penis, and sometimes painful or swollen testicles. Women may have burning or painful urination, increased vaginal discharge, or bleeding between periods. If Gonorrhea is left untreated, it can cause serious and permanent health problems in both women and men. Gonorrhea is diagnosed with a simple urine test and can be treated and cured with antibiotics.
Genital herpes is a very common STD caused by the herpes simplex virus type 1 or type 2. Some men and women with Herpes have no symptoms. Men and women with symptoms experience blisters around the genitals, rectum or mouth. The blisters become painful sores and heal over 2-4 weeks. Herpes virus can be spread even when the skin does not have sores. Herpes can be diagnosed with a blood test. Unfortunately, herpes cannot be cured, but antiviral medication can be useful in preventing or shortening outbreaks and can also make the infected person less likely to transmit the disease to partners.
Syphilis is an STD caused by a bacterium. Syphilis is transmitted from sexual contact with syphilis sores. Syphilis has 5 stages and it is important to be tested and treated early to avoid long-term complications such as paralysis, blindness, dementia, damage of multiple organs, and death. If a woman is pregnant with syphilis, the baby can be born with syphilis and many health problems or born dead. Syphilis can be diagnosed with a blood test and can be cured with appropriate antibiotics.
Anyone who is concerned about HIV exposure should be tested. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recently recommended that everyone between the ages of 13-64 be tested at least once. Persons who have a new sexual partner, multiple sexual partners, or other high-risk behavior should be tested yearly for HIV. Testing is done by a simple blood test and is important to prevent the spread of HIV to others. The Vaccine Center has three types of HIV tests:
Instant HIV test. This test has the benefit of knowing negative results in 20 minutes. The sample can be taken from a single finger stick or blood test. It is used to detect antibodies to HIV-1 and HIV-2. If test results are indeterminate, we will send a sample to the laboratory for confirmation testing at no additional cost.
HIV Antigen/Antibodies test. This fourth-generation test looks for both HIV antibodies and antigens. If you are infected with HIV, an antigen called p24 is produced even before antibodies develop. This test can detect HIV 2 to 6 weeks from the time of exposure. This is called the window period. If you’re test results are negative during the window period, you should be retested 3 months after your possible exposure. The results of the HIV Antigen/Antibodies test are usually available within 2-3 business days.
Aptima HIV test (Early detection HIV). This test is approved for the early diagnosis of HIV-1 infection. It can detect HIV in a 9-11 day “window period” or after. This test is more costly than the HIV antibody test. The results are usually available in 3-5 business days.
Hepatitis B is an infection caused by a virus that can be spread through blood and bodily fluids, (i.e. unprotected sex, sharing needles/syringes, or being born to an infected mother). Hepatitis B infection affects the liver and may range from a self-limiting infection, or acute liver failure. Less commonly, chronic Hepatitis B infection occurs which increases the risk of cirrhosis of the liver and/or liver cancer. Hepatitis B is diagnosed with a blood test and treatment is supportive and may differ with acute or chronic infection. Hepatitis B can be prevented with a safe and effective vaccine. For additional information on Hepatitis vaccination, please visit our other corporate website: HepatitisVaccine.com
Hepatitis C is an infection caused by a virus that can be transmitted by blood (i.e. sharing of needles, blood transfusion or organ transplant before 1992), and less commonly through sexual transmission. Hepatitis C infection can be asymptomatic or have a mild clinical illness. Chronic Hepatitis C infection develops in the majority of infections and may lead to cirrhosis of the liver and/or liver cancer. Hepatitis C is diagnosed with a blood test and outcomes are improved when diagnosis and treatment is started earlier in the course of illness. Unfortunately, there is currently no vaccine for Hepatitis C.
