STD Testing in Lakewood
Helping Keep You Safe from Sexually-Transmitted Diseases
Many sexually-transmitted diseases, commonly called STDs or STIs, do not display symptoms until after they have already done serious damage to the body. The good news, though, is most STDs are curable, and all are treatable. Although most people are aware that STDs are harmful, many go untested and therefore, untreated. Don’t put off STD testing and simply hope for the best. AFC Urgent Care Lakewood offers the convenience of walk-in STD testing and our staff is totally discreet and protects your privacy, so the choice to come in for a quick test is easy. We proudly provide STD testing services in Lakewood to ensure your peace of mind and health.
Our STD tests check for the following common sexually-transmitted infections:
- Herpes (HSV1 and HSV2)
- Hepatitis C
- Hepatitis B
Your physician will conduct a judgement-free interview to determine which tests are most appropriate for you. Depending on the test or tests you have, collection of blood, urine, or tissue samples may be necessary.

Should I Get an STD Test?
Those who are sexually active, especially with multiple partners, are highly recommended for regular STD tests. If you have had sex with a new partner without a condom, it’s important to be tested. Remember, most STDs have no symptoms in their early stages, but left untreated, can cause permanent health problems, such as infertility. What’s more, you could spread your infection to a partner if you are left untreated.
While not all STDs will show symptoms, you should be tested as soon as possible if you notice the following in your genital area:
- Painful urination
- Skin rash
- Unusual discharge
Getting tested ensures not only your own health, but the health of your current and future partners, as well. You can request STD testing at AFC Urgent Care Lakewood regardless of the initial reason for your urgent care visit.
