STD Screening in New York City

Remember that anyone who considers themselves sexually active is at-risk of acquiring sexually transmitted diseases: also called venereal disease (VD) or sexually transmitted infection (STI). People who want to remain sexually active and engage in sexual acts with one or more partners should always use appropriate protection such as condoms and receive frequent STD screenings. These methods are the only way to reduce risk of acquiring a STD or suffering the consequences of late detection. Residents of New York can visit our six locations to get their tests and results anytime of the week.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does STD screening work?

  • Inform the doctor about your medical/sexual history.
  • Inform the doctor about any physical signs (rashes/sores/warts).
  • Provide the doctor with a sample of blood/urine/tissue/cell/saliva.
  • The doctor may visually examine the sample in the office.
  • The doctor may also send the sample to the lab for further testing.
  • Wait for the result.

How do I know if I have sexually transmitted disease? What are the symptoms?

STD symptoms are not often as clear as we expect them to be. However, few of them may include

  • Fever and flu-like symptoms.
  • Genital itching, burning, or discomfort.
  • Vaginal discharge in women.
  • Swollen lymph nodes.
  • A feeling of pressure in the abdomen.

Would I need an STD screening if I have had recent blood work or a routine exam?

YES

  • Doctors don’t always include STDs in blood work.
  • The patient either presents symptoms or requests specific tests.
  • This fact extends to women receiving pelvic exams or pap smears.

You can always request that your doctor includes STD screenings with these tests.

If I’m under 18 years old, will I need written or oral permission from a parent in order to receive STD screening?

NO.

  • New York state laws permit minors to receive STD testing without parental permission.
  • Privacy/Confidentiality of results is guaranteed.
  • We’re open 365 days a year, 7 days a week.

We’re here when you need us.

Are home STD or over the counter STD tests safe?

At-home STD testing is unlikely to be as accurate as those done in a doctor’s office. The accuracy may be affected by errors in how you collect the sample, or problems due to the storage and handling of the sample, if it is mailed back to the lab.

There is no way to know if the lab meets the same stringent standards that known labs use. All these things could lead to false negatives.

Additionally, many STD results should be discussed with a doctor at the time the result is returned from the lab so you can receive proper treatment. This may or may not be available to you from the testing lab.

Most over the counting STD kits are not approved by the FDA. Those that are range from $ 70-100 which is pretty expensive when compared to a clinic STD testing appointment. Therefore, we highly recommend you visit a proper STD testing facility.
