Can I go to urgent care for STD testing?
There are many urgent care clinics like AFC Urgent Care that provide STD testing. Actually, urgent care can be a much better option over the ER or your primary care physician for testing. This is because urgent care can give you a test right away, same-day, and provide immediate test results, but most physicians can’t, and the ER can’t either. With AFC Urgent Care, you can get walk-in STD testing with same-day results. And just like your physician is, we’re bound by confidentiality rules, so you can expect us to be very private about your results. We’re also especially understanding with our patients.
The sooner you get tested and get your results, the sooner you’ll know whether you have an STD and what to do about it. This is why you should get your test done at urgent care. And if it turns out that you do have an STD, urgent care can treat you right away and help you take measures to prevent spreading the STD.
What do STD tests check for?
At an urgent care clinic like ours, the doctors can provide tests and treatments for HIV/AIDS, HPV, syphilis, herpes, chlamydia, gonorrhea, and other STDs. If a condition like one of these is left untreated, it can cause severe health problems (such as infertility or even organ damage) and spread to sexual partners. Some STDs have no symptoms, so even if you don’t suspect you have an STD, you may benefit from testing or even just inquiring about whether you should get tested.
If you require a prescription for an STD treatment medication, urgent care can provide it. They can even offer safe-sex practice education too. AFC Urgent Care can provide additional STD-related services if necessary.
How long does STD testing take?
One of the big benefits of going to urgent care for your test is that it can be done in next to no time! The entire procedure is very quick since sample collection is fast and an urgent care clinic has an onsite laboratory, so they can process results right away. It may take a day or two to process the test and provide results, but quite often, the test and results can be provided same-day! Regardless, our clinic will notify you as soon as your test results are available. Because we are bound by HIPAA confidentiality regulations, you can be sure we will not make these results available to anyone other than you unless we have your permission. We can share the results with your primary care physician if you want us to.
