If you need sexually transmitted disease (STD) or infection (STI) testing or treatment, you can rely on Jovive Health for fast, convenient, and confidential care. We can test for a number of STDs at our Henderson, Nevada, clinic, including chlamydia, gonorrhea, herpes (type 1 and type 2), human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), and syphilis.
When to Visit an Urgent Care for STD Testing
If you’re sexually active, you should regularly undergo STD testing regardless of whether you’re experiencing any STD symptoms, since many infections can be asymptomatic. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) generally recommends receiving an STD test at least once per year, but a doctor can offer advice that’s tailored to your specific circumstances.
If you’re experiencing STD symptoms, you should get tested soon (and avoid intimate contact until you’ve received the results). STD signs vary depending on the specific type of infection present but often include:
- Pain during urination and sexual intercourse
- Itchiness around the genitals
- Abnormal bleeding or discharge from the genitals
- Skin growths in the genital area (e.g., blisters, lumps, sores, and warts)
- Warts in the mouth and/or throat
What to Expect During STD Testing
If this will be your first time receiving an STD test, you might be unsure of what to expect. Different STDs require different testing methods, such as:
- Blood tests
- Cheek swabs
- Genital swabs
- Physical exams
- Urine tests
When you come to Jovive Health for STD testing, we’ll explain exactly what your test will involve and let you know when you can expect to receive your results while ensuring your privacy.
