Who Should Get Evaluated for STDs?
If you have engaged in sexual activity, you should get tested for STDs. Even if you used protection and practiced safe sex, it’s still crucial to receive STD testing since some STDs transmit skin-to-skin. Pregnant women, even those who do not have any reason to suspect they might have an STD, should also get tested as a precaution.
It’s especially important to get tested for an STD if you are experiencing any of the following symptoms:
- Painful sex
- A burning sensation while urinating
- Itchy or burning genitals
- Unusual sores on the genitals
- Rectal pain or discharge
- For women: off-color or odorous discharge or bleeding between menstrual periods
- For men: testicular pain or swelling
What Does the STD Testing Process Entail?
When you come to PhysicianOne Urgent Care for STD testing, you’ll be seen by one of our medical professionals who will provide a brief physical exam. (Female patients may need a pelvic exam as well.) Then, a urine test, a blood test, and/or a swab test will be administered.
