stay on top of your sexual health
STIs (sexually transmitted infections) are infections passed from one person to another through sex. STIs happen! They’re very common, just like a cold, sore throat, or stomach bug. But STIs don’t always cause symptoms, so it’s possible to have an infection and not know it. Without treatment, a common STI can lead to a more serious condition.
Getting tested routinely is the only way to know if you’re STI-free.
Our sexual health services include:
- STI and HIV testing and treatment
- Self-collection options
- Evaluations for concerns
- PrEP and PEP for HIV prevention
- Confidential counseling (including risk reduction, partner notification, and STI information)
- Safer sex and prevention methods education
- Free condoms, dental dams, finger cots, and lube
We offer fast, confidential, and judgment-free STI testing based on your risk factors. We know not everyone has the same types of sex. Our team of pros ensures you get everything you need.
Your testing options depend on if you need prevention or treatment.
Routine STI testing helps prevent the unintentional passing of STIs. If you don’t have symptoms, this is your best option!
Routine screenings include the following tests:
- HIV (blood sample)
- Syphilis (blood sample)
- Chlamydia (urine sample, oral swab, rectal swab)
- Gonorrhea (urine sample, oral swab, rectal swab)
STI screenings are free and open to all. No insurance is required. If you need treatment or want to discuss your results and sexual health, you’re responsible for the cost of medications and appointments. We offer discounted and/or free services for those who qualify based on family size and income. Please contact us to learn more and apply.
