STI Testing & Treatment

Did you know that some diseases are legally reportable by health officials to the state of Virginia?

Here is the list of STI’s:  AIDS, HIV disease, Gonorrhea, Chlamydia trachomatis, Hepatitis B and C (Acute), Trichinosis, Syphilis

Gathering this data helps State and National Government identify trends, public health concerns, decide where to allocate funding toward treatment etc.

The reported information is said to be kept “confidential” and “anonymous”.  Regulations for Disease Reporting and Control http://www.vdh.state.va.us/Epidemiology/documents/pdf/regs.pdf

If an individual wants a greater degree of anonymous testing or  is avoiding testing due to fears of how a reportable disease might effect their life, future chance for health care, etc. perhaps the above link will help.

Here’s what you need to know about STD testing and treatment at this health center:

We can test for gonorrhea and chlamydia using a urine sample. If this test shows an infection, then we will provide you with treatment and explain how your partner(s) can be treated.

For testing involving urine samples, including chlamydia and gonorrhea, do not urinate or engage in sexual intercourse for one hour before testing.

Many STD tests require a genital exam.

Rapid HIV testing can be done with a blood sample taken from a finger stick. The results are available in 10-40 minutes.

Counseling and confidential (private) testing for STDs are provided by trained staff who are sensitive to your needs and concerns.

Individuals ages 19 – 26 who have no health insurance and meet financial criteria may qualify for the Merck Vaccine Patient Assistance Program to receive the HPV vaccine (Gardasil) at no charge. Other fees may apply.

Some vaccines are given in a series over the course of several months, which would require you to return to the health center to get the full benefit.
