STD Testing Groton CTSTDs (sexually transmitted diseases) are fairly common, with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimating that nearly 20 million people each year contract one.

Why Is STD Testing So Important?

Because STDs can be transferred from one individual to another through contact with sexual organs, the mouth, or other intimate areas of the body, knowing that you have an STD is very important. If you’re unaware that you have one, you can spread it to your sexual partner. Luckily, most STDs are treatable with common antibiotics, while others are manageable with antiviral drugs or other medications.

When Should You Get Tested?

If you’ve ever been sexually active, you should get a baseline STD test just to make sure that you don’t have an STD. Additionally, if you have an unprotected sexual encounter, you should get tested within two weeks and refrain from engaging in any further sexual activities until after you’ve been tested and confirmed that you are not infected.

"The overall care I received was excellent! I also appreciate your affiliation with Yale New Haven Hospital."

Derby, CT

"Throughout the visit I felt like the staff really cared. The Doctor took his time talking with me about my symptoms, and I felt like he listened to all my concerns and took that into consideration when recommending the right treatment. Thank you!"

Hamden, CT

"I had to take my son in for an ear infection following a sudden change in temperament at daycare. He was inconsolable the entire car ride but when we got there and by the time we left this care facility he was back to his normal happy go lucky little two year old boy. I highly recommend PhysicianOne Urgent Care."

Westwood, MA

"I wanted to take a moment to thank you for the attention you gave me last week. My son was started on antibiotics and ear drops. Within 24 hours he began to feel better. The poor kid had been going to school in tears because he was afraid of missing any more days, but feeling (and looking) just awful! He's not been able to even think about lacrosse practice, but thanks to starting him on antibiotics, he was thrilled to return to practice today."
