Chlamydia and Gonorrhea Tests:

Our Chlamydia and Gonorrhea tests check for the existence of these sexually-transmitted diseases by locating their bacteriums in patients.

Epididymitis Tests:

Our Epididymitis screen helps patients determine if they currently have an inflamed epididymis, which is the tube through which sperm passes at the back of each testicle.

Hepatitis B Tests:

Our variety of Hepatitis B tests indicate whether or not a patient has been exposed to the Hepatitis B virus, and can also calculate the stage of a Hepatitis B infection.

Hepatitis C Tests:

Our numerous Hepatitis C tests can both detect the presence, and gauge the seriousness, of Hepatitis C in patients who may have contracted the virus.

Our Syphilis test discovers the presence of the Treponema pallidum bacterium, which is an indication of a Syphilis infection in a patient.

STD Recent Exposure Panel:

Our STD Recent Exposure Panel is sensitive enough to detect a patient’s exposure to STDs anywhere from the last few days up to a month. Please Note: The panel’s HIV-1 test is considered an early detection test which may produce a positive result prior to 28 days. However, you cannot rely on a negative result until after 28 days after possible exposure.

STD Urinary Tract Infection Panel:

Our STD Urinary Tract Infection Panel determines if Chlamydia and Gonorrhea are present in a patient, as well as giving a complete urinalysis profile.

*Please note: All abnormal or positive test results should be further evaluated by your physician.

What are Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs) ?

Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) are infections that are passed from one person to another by sexual contact. Sexual contact includes vaginal intercourse, anal intercourse, oral-genital contact, skin-to-skin contact in the genital area, kissing, and the use of sex toys, such as vibrators. The diseases usually affect the genital area including the penis or vagina.
Examples of STDs are:

    • Syphilis
    • Gonorrhea
    • Chlamydia
    • Herpes
    • Hepatitis B or C
    • Trichomoniasis
    • HIV/AIDS.

Key facts about STDs are:

    • STDs affect men and women of all backgrounds and economic levels. They are most common in people younger than 25 years of age.
    • The number of people affected by STDs is rising. Sexually active people today are more likely to have many sex partners during their lives, putting them at a higher risk for STDs.
    • STDs may not cause symptoms. A person who is infected may not know it and may give the infection to a sex partner.
    • STDs cause more severe health problems for women, such as death from a tubal pregnancy and cancer of the cervix.
    • STDs can spread from a pregnant mother to her newborn baby and cause serious problems or death.
    • When diagnosed and treated early, many STDs can be cured. Some STDs caused by viruses, such as herpes, HIV, and genital warts, have no cure, but many treatments are available to lessen or avoid complications.

How Do STDs Occur?

Bacteria, viruses, and parasites cause STDs. They are usually passed between partners during sexual intercourse and other sexual contact. You can have an STD without knowing it. This means that you could infect your partner before you know you have an STD.

How Can I Help Prevent STDs?

The best way to prevent STDs is to avoid sexual contact. This includes not having vaginal sex, anal sex, or oral sex. If you are sexually active, here are some steps you should take to reduce your risk of becoming infected with a STD:

    • Delay having sexual relations as long as possible. The younger you are when you begin having sex, the more likely it is that you will develop an STD.
    • Have just 1 sexual partner who you know does not have an infection and is not sexually active with anyone else.
    • Practice safe sex. Always use latex or polyurethane condoms during any sexual contact. Using condoms reduces the risk of infection for some STDs but does not provide full protection against genital warts, syphilis, and herpes. Do not reuse condoms.

If you are sexually active, have regular checkups for STDs, especially if you are having sex with a new partner. If you think you might have an STD or may have been exposed to an STD, stop sexual activity and get a medical exam.
Some possible symptoms of STDs are:

    • Burning or pain when urinating
    • Strange smelling discharge from the vagina or penis
    • Itching, burning, or pain around the vagina, penis, or rectum
    • Rashes, sores, blisters, or growths around the vagina, penis, or rectum.

Do not be embarrassed or afraid to seek care or ask for information. STD checks are a part of routine care at most medical offices and clinics. Remember that early diagnosis and treatment can prevent complications and keep you from spreading the disease to your partner. You can get more information and treatment from your health care provider, the health department, a family planning clinic, or an STD clinic.
