Walk-In STD Testing in Manhattan’s Midtown West
Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) are very common. If you are sexually active, a simple and effective way to protect your health—and the health of your partner—is to make STD testing a regular part of your preventive health care plan. At MedRite Urgent Care in Manhattan’s Midtown West, we make it easy.
As a full-service urgent care center, MedRite offers discreet and reliable STD testing and treatment from experienced and knowledgeable providers. We understand that many people are apprehensive about discussing STDs, especially with a stranger. That’s why we prioritize compassionate care. You won’t find any judgment at our walk-in clinic; instead, you’ll find a listening ear, helpful advice, timely answers, and comprehensive treatment options that meet your needs.
Could You Be Infected?
As part of our STD testing process, we generally advise everyone to become familiar with some common signs of STDs, including:
- Pain or burning sensations during urination
- Pain during sexual activity
- Genital itching
- Unusual discharge from the penis or vagina
- A rash, sores, or bumps in the genital area
- Pelvic or abdominal pain
- Fever and chills
With that said, it’s important to note that many STDs do not cause symptoms. For that reason, millions of people go undiagnosed each year, which further underscores the reason for periodic STD testing—whether you have symptoms or not.
Our Approach to STD Testing
At MedRite, we strive to make STD testing as quick and stress-free as possible for our patients. We’ll begin by asking some questions about your sexual history and symptoms if any exist. Please be honest! Then, we’ll perform a physical examination to determine which type of STD testing is most appropriate for you. Most STD tests involve a urine sample, mouth swab, or blood draw, which we can process in our on-site lab. As soon as we have your results, we’ll contact you to discuss your next steps. If you are diagnosed with an STD, don’t worry. Most STDs can be treated with proper medication, and many can be cured.
