What is an STD?
STDs (sexually transmitted diseases) are spread through sexual contact, specifically through infected bodily fluids or through contact with infected skin. Also, STDs, including HIV and hepatitis C, can be spread when sharing needles. Because STDs can go unnoticed, often people have no idea they are infected. If an STD is left untreated, it can lead to other serious health problems.
If you are concerned that you may have been exposed to an STD, the best thing to do is to get tested. The only way to confirm that you haven't contracted an STD is to get an STD test.

Our patients say it best
Like many others, the thought of getting tested aroused fear, anxiety, and tons of stress for me. I lost countless hours of sleep, a lot of weight due to not eating, and happiness. The only way to overcome that fear is simply getting tested. Your health is the most important thing! My results came through quickly (less than 72 hours), privately, and best of all, in a friendly and understanding manner. Thanks for everything! Anonymous patient
