STD Testing Available in the Theater District of New York City
Periodic testing for sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) is a key component of preventive health care for anyone who is sexually active. Humans can transmit more than 25 different STDs through sexual activities, and approximately 50% of sexually active individuals will contract an STD by age 25. Sexually transmitted infections (STIs) are also on the rise among older adults, including seniors.
While STD testing cannot prevent you from becoming infected, it can help you avoid complications if you do become infected. Additionally, it can help you avoid spreading the infection to your sexual partner.
Despite its importance, STD testing is not usually included as part of a routine wellness checkup—you must request it. At MedRite Urgent Care, we make it easy for you. We perform STD testing on a walk-in basis at our urgent care center near the Theater District in the heart of Manhattan’s Midtown West.
Which STD Tests Do You Need?
The best way to find out what type of STD testing you might need is to discuss your sexual history and symptoms (if any) with a health care provider at MedRite. Please be candid; our urgent care center is a judgment-free zone. Based on the information you provide, we can suggest the most appropriate screenings for you, which may include tests for:
- Hepatitis B
- Hepatitis C
- Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)
Some STDs, such as chlamydia and gonorrhea, do not usually cause noticeable symptoms. What’s more, when STI symptoms are apparent, they can be very similar to the symptoms produced by other common conditions, such as yeast infections and urinary tract infections (UTIs). Therefore, it can be difficult to diagnose an STD without specifically testing for it.
You can count on the experienced medical team at MedRite Urgent Care near the Theater District to meet all of your non-emergency health care needs. Come in for STD testing today!
