If you are sexually active, you may be at risk for STIs and pregnancy. Your health is important! STIs (Sexually Transmitted Infections) are common and often have no symptoms. According to the CDC, over 25 million new cases of STIs occur each year in the United States. This means that if you are having unprotected sex, you are at risk of contracting an STI. It is important to have regular testing and get treatment when needed. We offer free and confidential STI testing and treatment to our patients. All patients receiving STI testing will also be tested for pregnancy.
We offer testing for Chlamydia and Gonorrhea, Trichomoniasis (Trich), and Human Papillomavirus (HPV). These infections are more common than you may think and can easily go undetected. If untreated, they can cause permanent health problems. Your risk for infection increases with the number of sexual partners you have. No matter how many sexual partners you have had, it is in the best interest of your health to have routine testing. If you feel you are at risk for having an STI, please schedule an appointment with Dove Medical.
We offer lab-quality urine tests and swabs. The type of test will be determined by our practitioner. We are able to collect the sample during your appointment. The process is simple and easy.
Results are typically available within a week of testing. Some results are available much sooner. We will schedule a follow-up appointment for you to return and receive your results and treatment if needed in a confidential environment. Our Family Nurse Practitioners and Registered Nurses will be available to answer questions you may have.
Please contact us today to make a free and confidential appointment to discuss your pregnancy and STI concerns.
