STD Screening Turtle BayYour sexual health is an important aspect of your overall health, potentially affecting your physical, mental, emotional, and social well-being.

Our STD screening tests take only a few minutes, and we usually have the results available within one to five business days. Don’t procrastinate or worry. Instead, be proactive about protecting your sexual health.

How Do You Know if You Have an STD?

While some STDs produce symptoms, such as burning during urination and genital itching, sores, or discharge, others do not. Other than having an STD test performed by a medical professional, there is no way to know for sure whether you are infected. Finding out is important because early diagnosis and treatment can lead to the best possible outcome. Additionally, even if an STD does not produce symptoms, the infection can still be spread to others during sexual activity. It is also important to note that STD screening is not usually performed during a woman’s routine gynecological exam or a man’s annual check-up—typically, you must request it.

What Does STD Screening Involve?

MedRite offers several types of tests that can detect different STDs. To determine which form of STD screening is most appropriate for you, we’ll ask you a series of questions. We encourage you to be completely honest; you can rest assured that all of your information will be kept completely confidential.

The STD screening process may include a physical exam, a blood draw, a mouth swab, and/or a urine sample. Our state-of-the-art office is equipped with an onsite lab, so we are often able to expedite the diagnostic process.
