What is an STD?

STDs are spread through sexual contact that can cause few or no symptoms until they progress to more serious stages. They can pass from person to person through vaginal, oral, and anal sex. If you’re sexually active with multiple partners, or with someone who has multiple partners, or have sex without the use of a condom, you’re at risk.

The most common STDs include:

  • Gonorrhea
  • Chlamydia
  • Human papillomavirus (HPV)
  • Genital herpes
  • Genital warts
  • HIV
  • Hepatitis B
  • Trichomoniasis

To prevent the spread of STDs and other health complications, you need medical treatment, which Carolina Urgent Care can provide.

How do I know if I need STD testing?

You should have regular STD testing if you’re sexually active or if you develop symptoms.

Signs of an STD include:

  • Sores around the genitals, anus, or mouth
  • Warts around the genitals
  • Unusual vaginal discharge
  • Pain when urinating
  • Swelling, redness, or bumps around the genitals, anus, or mouth
  • Aching in your pelvic region
  • Foul-smelling vaginal odor
  • Fever

Also, if you notice any changes in the way your genitals appear or feel, you should get STD testing at Carolina Urgent Care.

What happens during STD testing?

Though talking about STDs and undergoing testing can make you feel awkward or embarrassed, the compassionate and caring team at Carolina Urgent Care helps you feel relaxed and comfortable during your confidential STD testing. 

Your testing may involve a:

  • Urine sample
  • Pelvic exam
  • Swab of genital secretions
  • Visual check for sores

Your provider might also need to take a mouth swab or do a blood test to rule out certain infections.

What happens after my STD testing?

Your provider at Carolina Urgent Care talks to you about steps you can take to protect your health, including safe sex practices. The team can also speak to you about your test results and provide an effective treatment plan for you. 

Though you can expect a full recovery from bacterial, fungal, or parasitic infection, there aren’t cures for viral STDs like HIV and HPV, but they can be controlled with prescription medications.

To learn more about STDs and being tested for them, call the friendly staff at Carolina Urgent Care or book a visit online today. Or, you can walk into the clinic for an appointment.
