Convenient Walk-In STD Testing & Treatment in Somers, NY
Are you worried that you might have a sexually transmitted disease (STD)? If so, don’t hesitate to seek treatment — failing to promptly treat an infection can lead to further complications and increase the risk of it spreading to other people. Fortunately, those in Somers, New York, and surrounding communities can turn to PhysicianOne Urgent Care for STD testing and treatment. We test for and treat a number of STDs, including chlamydia, gonorrhea, hepatitis B, hepatitis C, herpes, HIV, and syphilis.
How to Know If You Have an STD
Each STD produces its own set of symptoms, but some common signs to look out for include:
- Sores on your genitals
- Unusual discharge
- Pain, itching, or discomfort in your genital area
- A burning sensation while urinating
- Pain during sex
If you’re a female, you might also notice bleeding in between your normal menstrual periods. If you’re a man, you could experience pain or swelling in your testicles.
It’s important to note, however, that STDs don’t always produce symptoms, and the only way to truly know if you have an STD is to undergo proper testing. Our STD testing process is very simple — we’ll perform a brief physical exam and we may also draw blood, collect urine, or take a tissue sample for further testing. If your test comes back positive, we’ll recommend an appropriate course of treatment. Virtually all STDs are treatable with medication, and most of them can be cured entirely.
