STD Testing

Sexually transmitted infections (STI) and sexually transmitted diseases (STD) mean the same thing and that is a disease that is spread through sexual activity (remember that includes all types of sex vaginal, anal, and oral). Anyone who is sexually active is at risk for getting and spreading an STD.

At DHD#10 you can get confidential STD testing- that includes teens but parent involvement is always encouraged. STD testing at DHD#10 is available to men and women of all ages at low or no-cost; cost is based on your income. DHD#10 can also bill your insurance to cover the cost of service. DHD#10 is LGBTQ friendly.

People with multiple sexual partners, those who think they may have been exposed, those who’ve had unprotected sex with a partner whose health status was unknown, or anyone who has symptoms of an STD should definitely get tested. If you think you have an STD, first off, don’t panic. You should make an appointment to get tested right away and hold off on sexual activity until you get tested. To make an appointment call 888-217-3904, option #2.

Upon receiving results of your test, a nurse can discuss safe sex, treatment options, risk reduction, birth control, how to talk to your partner, and more. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask!
