Confidential Testing for HIV and STDs in Lee Vista FL
Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), including human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), are more widespread than many people think. Even amidst the pandemic lockdown, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported a total of 2.4 million cases of STDs in 2020. Data for 2021 showed an upward trend as well, with cases reaching 2.5 million.
Thankfully, most STDs can be cured. Even dangerous and incurable STDs like human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) can be properly managed and treated, allowing you to live as normally as possible. However, early detection and prompt treatment are key.
That is why Prestige Urgent Care offers professional and discreet testing for HIV and STDs. With Prestige Urgent Care, there’s no need to endure long wait lines or difficulty when setting up appointments. If you want to get tested, simply call our office or visit us as a walk-in patient.
Protect Yourself and Your Partners from HIV and STDs
Testing for STDs is as easy as any other medical exam. Depending on what you want to get tested for, the procedure will closely resemble any routine blood work or drug test. In most cases, our staff will draw blood, ask for a urine sample, or collect a swab sample from the affected area.
HIV and STDs are regular risks that patients take on as long as they engage in sexual activities. While using a condom and other forms of protection may reduce their risk, it does not remove the possibility entirely.
If you are sexually active and have had more than one partner recently, we highly recommend getting tested for HIV or STDs, even if you don’t think you were infected.
Prestige Urgent Care makes it fast and easy to get tested. Safeguard your health and the health of your partner by getting tested for HIV and STDs regularly.
Know When You May Need to Get Tested
As a precaution, it is best for anyone who has had unprotected sex, especially with a person they suspect or know to have an STD, to get tested immediately. This also applies if you engaged in unsafe sex with anyone whose sexual history you are not familiar with.
If you experience any of the common signs or symptoms of STDs, it is best to schedule an appointment at our facility or visit us for testing. These symptoms include painful or frequent urination, unusual genital discharge, sores or bumps around your genitals and pelvic area, and pain or itching around your genitals.
