STD Testing Manchester CT

Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) are primarily spread from person to person through intimate contact. These infections are very common, and since STDs can produce a wide range of ambiguous symptoms—and sometimes, no symptoms at all—many people do not even realize they are infected. Therefore, if you are sexually active, STD testing should be an important part of your overall health care. You can be tested for many STDs at PhysicianOne Urgent Care in Manchester, Connecticut, and our urgent care center is a completely judgment-free zone.

At PhysicianOne Urgent Care, we offer STD testing for:

Human Papillomavirus (HPV)

There are more than 100 strains of HPV. Although some types are harmless and resolve on their own, others can lead to the development of genital warts or cancer. Even if an HPV infection produces no symptoms, it can still be transmitted through sexual contact.

Chlamydia

Chlamydia can cause unusual genital discharge or burning sensations during urination. Also, a woman may experience low back or abdominal pain, pain during sexual intercourse, or vaginal bleeding in between menstrual periods.

Gonorrhea

In addition to unusual genital discharge and burning during urination, gonorrhea can cause swollen testicles in men and vaginal bleeding in between menstrual periods in women.

Genital Herpes

A telltale sign of genital herpes is painful sores in the genital area. After an initial infection resolves, the herpes simplex virus (HSV) remains dormant in the body, but it can reactivate at any time and may cause symptom outbreaks several times per year.

Hepatitis B

A serious liver infection, hepatitis B is commonly spread through contact with bodily fluids infected with the hepatitis B virus. A hepatitis B infection can cause a hive-like rash, loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, fever, headache, joint pain, fatigue, dark-colored urine, jaundice, and liver enlargement.

Syphilis

The first sign of syphilis is a small, painless sore (chancre) that develops at the site where the bacterium Treponema pallidum entered the body, which may be hidden in the vagina or rectum. Usually, the chancre develops within three weeks of exposure and heals within six weeks. Then, a rash may develop on the trunk and spread throughout the body. The rash may be accompanied by mouth sores, hair loss, muscle aches, fever, a sore throat, and swollen lymph nodes.

The best ways to protect yourself and others from STDs is to learn about the symptoms, use a condom during sexual activity (or abstain), and receive STD testing if you are sexually active. If you do contract an STD, early detection and treatment can help ensure a safe and fast recovery, and also keep you as comfortable as possible in the meantime.

"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!"

Patient
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."

Patient
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."
