STD Testing

We offer free testing for Gonorrhea and Chlamydia at our center, and we provide Medical Referrals for STD/STI treatment. All of our services are free of charge and confidential. We are here to listen, help you in any way we can and answer any questions you may have.

We offer free Sexually Transmitted Infection (STI) testing and treatment through a urine-based test for chlamydia and gonorrhea. When a positive test result returns, we provide you with a Medical Referral for treatment.

Chlamydia and gonorrhea are STIs, meaning they are transmitted by having oral, anal, or vaginal sex with a person who already has the disease.

Both chlamydia and gonorrhea are highly contagious, sexually transmitted bacterial infections that affect both women and men. Chlamydia is caused by the bacteria chlamydia trachomatis. Gonorrhea, also called “the clap” or “the drip”, is caused by the bacteria, Neisseria gonorrhoeae. Chlamydia and gonorrhea bacteria can grow and cause infections in the vagina, cervix, uterus, or fallopian tubes in women, and in the urethra in men. It can also infect the anus, mouth, throat and the lining of the eyelids.

Left untreated, these STDs can cause irreversible damage to your reproductive system. This in turn can lead to a high risk of pregnancy, miscarriage, infertility, sterility or other long-term complications. Both STIs can pass onto newborns during childbirth if the mother is infected and remains untreated.

Chlamydia & Gonorrhea Symptoms

  • Discharge
  • Burning sensation while urinating
  • Painful, burning sensations in infected area
  • Bleeding between periods
  • Abdominal pain
  • Swelling or pain in either or both testicles
  • Pain during sex

Both can infect your eyes causing discharge, conjunctivitis (itchy, red eyes, also known as pinkeye), or sensitivity to light.

Both can also spread or infect the anus causing:

  • Discharge
  • Bleeding
  • Rectal pain

Most people who have
chlamydia and gonorrhea
don’t know it.

75% of women and 50% of men with chlamydia exhibit no symptoms. Estimates also show that the majority of men and women with gonorrhea show no symptoms.

Even if you don’t think you have an STI, it’s important to get periodic testing if you are engaged in sexual activity. Getting regular STI screenings makes you a healthier and more responsible partner.
