STD Testing Services
Anyone who is sexually active can benefit from NYC STD and STI Testing, regardless of the number of sexual partners they’ve had. Here at Great City Medical, our health care staff creates a calm and relaxing environment when you arrive for your test.
Which STD Tests Should I Get?
There is no single “STD Test.” Instead, there are a variety of tests that you can choose to get for specific sexually transmitted diseases. Each test is different and may include an oral swab, vaginal swab, rectal swab, urine test, or blood test.
Great City Medical provides testing for the following most common STDs:
- RPR (syphilis)
- Hepatitis A, Hepatitis B, and Hepatitis C
- Herpes 1 and 2
- HPV (genital warts)
- Rapid HIV testing
- Trichomoniasis (Trich)
If you’re near Manhattan, schedule an appointment with one of our doctors and we’ll be sure to get you the STD testing you need to have confidence in your health.
Why the Need for NYC STD Testing?
Just last year, a startling report showed that New York City has some of the country’s highest rates of sexually transmitted infections. While that report may seem scary, proper diagnoses can help people live perfectly comfortable and safe lives.
With proper STD testing and treatment, many sexually transmitted diseases can be treated and managed. They are not as scary or embarrassing as they may initially seem.
If you test positive for any STDs, your doctor will walk you through your test results and give you all the health information you need for you and any of your sexual partners.
When Should I Get STD Tested?
If you’re sexually active, an STD test or an STI test is always a good idea. You may think you only need to go into a medical care clinic if you show symptoms. But the simple truth is, there may be an issue that you’re unaware of.
Being sexually active means you can potentially pass infections on to other people without them knowing. This can be a dangerous situation—and coming into testing centers will help clear your mind.
It’s hard to put a price tag on the peace of mind that comes with a healthy follow-up. Health services aren’t just there to help you rectify a bad situation, but to give you the peace of mind that comes from knowing that you’re safe and healthy. Many people enjoy the convenience of a walk-in clinic or urgent care in their neighborhood, but the doctors at Great City Medical will give you unparalleled medical care and help you feel informed about your sexual health.
