STD Testing Available for Residents of Norwich, CT

STD Testing Norwich CTAs the name implies, a sexually transmitted disease (STD) is an infection that is transmitted through activities involving contact with the sexual organs, mouth, or other intimate parts of the body. While there are steps you can take to reduce the likelihood of contracting an STD, such as using a condom every time you are intimate with someone, there is still a chance that you could become infected with an STD. So, if you are sexually active, it’s a good idea to undergo STD testing on a regular basis.
If you live in Norwich, Connecticut, or a surrounding area, you can come to PhysicianOne Urgent Care at almost any time to receive STD testing. We are open 365 days per year during extended hours, and we accept patients on a walk-in basis, making it easy for you to receive STD testing at a time that works for you.

Signs You Should be Tested

Many STDs don’t cause noticeable symptoms, so anyone who is sexually active should be tested periodically. However, if you have any of the following symptoms, you should seek STD testing immediately:

  • An off-color or odorous discharge from your vagina or bleeding between your menstrual periods (if you’re female)
  • Testicular pain or swelling (if you’re male)
  • A burning sensation while urinating
  • Sores on your genitals
  • Rectal pain or discharge
  • Burning, itching, or discomfort in or around your genitals

Additionally, if you are pregnant, even if you have no reason to suspect that you have an STD, you should be tested because some infections such as syphilis, chlamydia, and gonorrhea can be transmitted to your child.

"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."
