Sexually transmitted diseases (commonly referred to as STDs) are a sensitive but important health issue that affects patients of all ages in the United States. STDs are especially on the rise for young people in the US, and can easily be prevented through various measures. One of the best ways to get treated once you have an STD is to regularly receive yearly check ups for STDs. Unfortunately, many patients choose not to get tested because they do not want to make an appointment months or weeks in advance with their primary care physician on a yearly basis. At AFC Urgent Care in Mira Mesa our clinic is a great alternative option for those who want to avoid making appointments in advance for STD testing and instead get them on a walk in basis.
Because STD testing can be a sensitive topic, our urgent care professionals are sure to provide confidential and compassionate health care services. We work with each patient to discuss the options for STD treatment and diagnosis. In addition, our clinic is open every day of the week during flexible hours. Our team knows that your health needs do not rely on a set schedule, so we do our best to provide flexible care for every patient’s testing needs. Another great advantage of coming into AFC Urgent Care Mira Mesa for STD testing is our on site testing clinic. Rather than waiting days or weeks for test results, our urgent care professionals can work quickly to provide you with accurate and timely results the same day that you walk in for STD testing.
There are a large number of STDs to test for, but some are more common in the population than others. Here are some of the STDs that AFC Urgent Care Mira Mesa often tests for:
We promise to provide you and your loved ones with confidential care when it comes to diagnostic testing for STDs, and we can work with you to find the best treatment solution. Most of the time, bacterial STDs are treated with antibiotics over a small period of time, and are very effective. Other STDs, such as herpes, are not completely curable but our team can provide you with advice on how to help with the symptoms of the disease.
For many STDs, such as chlamydia, symptoms are not obvious for months or years on end. That is why it is so important to get checked on a regular basis, especially if you have multiple sex partners or do not use protection. Pregnancy with STDs can lead to long term complications for your child or personal health, so we recommend a testing checkup if you plan on getting pregnant.
Our urgent care professionals at AFC Urgent Care Mira Mesa are here to help with all of your STD testing needs and provide any confidential advice that you may need. We look forward to helping you stay healthy and STD free this year!
That depends on what we’re ultimately testing for. Some tests include swabs of the genitals or mouth, while others require urine or blood tests.
There are many different STDs, so the risks will depend on the disease. Cancer, infertility, transmission to sexual partners, and harm to unborn babies are a few risks of leaving STDs untreated.
We’re able to test for some of the most common STDs including gonorrhea, genital warts and herpes, chlamydia, HPV, and more. Call your local clinic for a full rundown of the testing they can provide.
