What to Expect During an STD Test
There’s no need to be nervous during an STD test—our practitioners provide these services regularly for our patients and you can count on discreet, compassionate care from our team. First, the medical professional you see will conduct a brief physical exam (female patients may also need a pelvic exam). Next, your practitioner will draw blood or collect a urine sample. In some instances, your practitioner may need to collect a sample from affected tissue(s) and, if so, he or she will use a sterile cotton swab.
