The Importance of Rapid STD Testing

The significance of rapid STD testing cannot be overstated. Early detection and treatment of STDs can prevent serious health issues, such as infertility, organ damage, and increased risk of HIV transmission. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), STDs are a significant public health challenge in the United States, with millions of new infections each year. Rapid testing plays a critical role in controlling this epidemic by facilitating early intervention and treatment.

Why Regular STD Testing is Crucial

While some symptoms of STDs can be readily apparent, there are common STDs that present little to no symptoms and are therefore impossible to diagnose without proper screening. If you are sexually active, consider visiting us for routine STD testing to help ensure the health of you and your partner.

At Advance ER, we understand how important your privacy is to you. The reason for your visit will always be kept confidential, and you will receive medical treatment in a comfortable and private room with one of our friendly and passionate medical personnel seeing you through every step of the screening process.

STD Testing: Essential and Confidential

Regular STD testing is a critical aspect of maintaining good sexual health. It is generally recommended that you get tested in particular circumstances, such as if you've had unprotected sex, multiple partners, or a new partner. Even if you are in a long-term monogamous relationship or practicing safe sex, regular testing may be a good idea.

Importantly, it's crucial to remember that not having symptoms does not mean that you are free from STDs. Many sexually transmitted diseases can remain dormant, displaying no visible signs or symptoms. Yet, they can still be transmitted to other people and potentially lead to serious health complications later on.

At Advance ER, we provide professional, confidential, and reliable STD testing services. We believe in making these tests accessible and stress-free, empowering our patients to take control of their sexual health. Trust Advance ER for your STD testing needs, and remember, early detection leads to the most effective treatment.

Understanding Your STD Test Results

An STD diagnosis might be confirmed after the physical exam, but in most cases, the samples must go to a lab to confirm a diagnosis. It normally takes a few days for the results to come back from the laboratory. The urgent care office will call with the results at that time. Patients who are diagnosed with STDs need to come back to urgent care for treatment.

Effective Treatment Options for STDs

Patients who have a bacterial STD such as gonorrhea or chlamydia will receive a prescription for antibiotics. It is critical to follow the instructions so the antibiotics kill the infection. Patients should undergo a second round of testing three months after finishing the antibiotics to ensure the infection did not reappear. If it reoccurs, patients must undergo a second round of treatment.

Genital herpes is a viral STD and cannot be cured. However, antiviral drugs limit the number of outbreaks and also reduce the symptoms. These drugs also make infected patients less likely to pass the disease to sexual partners.
