Why Is It Important to Get Tested for an STD?

STDs that produce symptoms can make you feel miserable, so it can be beneficial to get tested so you know exactly how to treat your specific case. However, some STDs don’t produce any symptoms so you might have something and not even know it. This is why we encourage everyone who is sexually active to get tested often to prevent spreading something to a new partner.

Getting tested is easy when you come to us! We can detect over 20 different STDs, and we will help you come up with a corresponding treatment. Below are some of the most common STDs we can quickly test for.
