Walk-In STD Testing for Residents & Visitors of West Hartford, CT
If you’re concerned that you may have a sexually transmitted disease (STD) and want prompt testing, visit PhysicianOne Urgent Care in West Hartford, Connecticut. We are a full-service urgent care center that offers STD testing and treatment from highly experienced practitioners who always provide compassionate care. We understand that worrying about having an STD can be scary, and we’ll provide timely answers and a comprehensive treatment plan that meets your needs.
What Are the Symptoms of an STD?
Some of the most common symptoms of STDs include:
- A burning sensation or pain during urination
- Unusual discharge from the genitals
- Vaginal burning or itching
- Genital bumps or sores
- Pelvic or abdominal pain
- Pain during sex
- Fever or chills
It’s important to note that millions of people who have STDs go undiagnosed every year because they are asymptomatic. That’s why sexually active individuals should receive regular STD testing. Those who have engaged in unprotected sex should seek testing within one to two weeks of the encounter and then again 90 days later.
STD Testing at Our Urgent Care Center
At our urgent care center, we strive to make STD testing quick and painless for our patients. We begin with a brief physical exam to get a better understanding of your symptoms (female patients may require a pelvic exam as well). Then, we’ll administer the STD test by way of a blood draw or urinalysis. In certain cases, we may need to use a sterile cotton swab to collect samples from the affected tissue.
Since we have an on-site lab at our urgent care center, we’ll be able to provide quick results. If we confirm an STD diagnosis, we’ll provide you with a comprehensive treatment plan. Virtually all STDs can be treated with medication and most are curable by following the proper treatment regimen.
