Fast, Accurate STD Labs for the Houston & Dickinson, TX Area
If you are sexually active, getting regularly tested for STDs is one of the most important things you can do to protect your health. Most STDs don’t have any symptoms, so getting tested is the only way you can definitively know whether you have one or not. If you have had any kind of sexual contact that can spread STDs, especially if it’s with a new partner, talk with a doctor or nurse about getting tested.
Sometimes you simply need to know your results as quickly as possible. Whether you suspect that you might have an STD or you want to make sure you’re healthy before getting intimate with a new partner, a walk-in clinic can offer thorough testing with prompt, accurate results. St. Elizabeth Urgent Care offers walk-in STD lab testing services at our clinic in the Houston and Dickinson, TX area. Our professional team will have your test results quickly for your peace of mind.
When Should You Get Tested for an STD?
There is no hard and fast rule about when you should get STD testing. Some people prefer to get tested before becoming intimate with a new partner; if you are sexually active, it’s certainly a good idea to get tested regularly and have frank conversations with your partners about your sexual health. You should absolutely get tested if you notice potential symptoms. Signs of a potential STD include:
● Sores or bumps on or around your genitals or thighs
● Unusual discharge
● Genital itching, irritation, or pain
● Burning when you urinate and/or more frequent urination than usual
● Flu-like symptoms, including body aches, fever, fatigue, or swollen glands.
All of these symptoms can also be caused by things that are not STDs; getting tested is the only way to know for sure.
