STD Testing in San Diego, Mission Valley, CA
AFC Urgent Care & Walk-in STD Clinic Near San Diego Provides Confidential Sessions with Utmost Care and Respect
Thousands of Americans experience a sexually transmitted disease (STD) every year and are left panicked, not knowing how to deal with the results. Unfortunately, STDs are slowly on the rise in the United States, especially among adults who are more likely to have multiple partners and not use protection. The best way to find out about STDs early on so you can treat them medically is by getting testing on a regular basis. But STD testing can be time consuming and stressful for many, because they choose to make an appointment weeks or months in advance with their primary care physician. This usually can deter young adults and patients of all ages from getting regularly tested for STDs.
At AFC Urgent Care in Mission Valley San Diego, our urgent care professionals provide the convenient alternative of walk in STD testing for patients of all ages. Rather than making an appointment far in advance, we know that your schedule is busy and sometimes your health can come second, so we make STD testing accessible and affordable for all patients in the Mission Valley area. When you walk into AFC Urgent Care, you will be helped by a compassionate and knowledgeable medical professional who can answer your questions confidentially and provide you with fast STD testing at our on site laboratory clinic.
While hospitals and primary care centers can take days or weeks to provide STD testing results, we focus on getting you results as soon as possible. We know that STD testing is a sensitive health issue to many, so we work with you to give informed and professional advice on sexually transmitted diseases. STD testing is not a time consuming process, and usually involves a blood or urine test. For women, it can sometimes involve vaginal swabs, which are also fast and easy at our walk in clinic. Some of the common STDs that we see and test for can include:
Treatment for these STDs can vary, but if it is a bacterial infection this usually involves the administration of antibiotics. Again, we work with every patient to find the appropriate treatment or refer you to a professional who can help. STDs can often show zero symptoms, which is another reason why it is so important to get tested on a regular basis. Having a sexually transmitted disease while you are pregnant can lead to serious complications, so if you plan on getting pregnant it is a good idea to be proactive and get tested beforehand.
