At AFC Urgent Care Bedford, we recommend all sexually active patients to get tested for sexually transmitted infections (STIs). It is important to get tested for potential infections in order to support your overall health and lower the risk of potential complications. Many STIs do not show any noticeable symptoms, which is why routine testing is important every six months to a year. Getting tested gives you peace of mind that not only are not infected, but you won’t be spreading an infection to others.
At our walk-in clinic, our team of experienced medical providers perform all testing on-site. This means you won’t have to leave the facility to receive testing and prompt results. Sexual health is extremely important, and our providers strive to make testing quick, convenient, and discreet. Visit AFC Urgent Care Bedford for walk-in STI testing and treatment, or book an appointment online today.
