STI testing & treatment

What are sexually transmitted infections (STIs)?

An STI, or sexually transmitted infection, is an infection that can be spread from one person to another, typically through vaginal, anal, or oral sex. If you’re sexually active, getting tested regularly for STIs is important to protect your health. Getting tested might feel intimidating, but knowing your status is important. 

Common STIs you may be tested for.

At Spectrum Medical, we offer a safe and confidential place for you to get tested and receive treatment. We test for the following STIs:

  • Chlamydia
    • A common STI caused by bacteria that can affect your genital area and cause health problems if not treated.
  • Hepatitis
    • A virus that affects the liver and is transmitted through sexual contact, infected blood, or sharing needles.
    • HIV is a virus that weakens your immune system and can lead to AIDS.
  • Gonorrhea
    • An STI caused by a bacterial infection that can infect the genitals, throat, and rectum.
  • Syphilis
    • A common bacterial infection that, if left untreated, can cause serious medical complications.

Know your status.

An open and honest conversation with your healthcare provider about your sexual history during your appointment is important.

For your convenience, we provide free HIV and STI testing after regular business hours through our Testing After Dark program. Additionally, our U.B.U. Crew offers provides onsite testing at community events.

If you test positive for any STI, our team will guide you through treatment options and provide information to share with your partners.
