What Is STD Testing?
Anyone who has been sexually active is at risk for contracting a sexually transmitted disease (STD). Many STDs have no signs while others have symptoms that don't appear right away. Either way, STDs can potentially affect your fertility, as well as your overall health so it's a good idea to have routine STD tests as a preventive measure. At Gynecology and Cosmetic Surgery Center of Atlanta, we provide STD testing within a private, comfortable environment. In the event that an STD is discovered, Dr. Gerry Sotomayor can offer a number of treatment options to get you back on track to your best health. Contact our friendly team to schedule an STD test at our facility near Norcross, GA.
What to Expect During STD Testing
STDs may be diagnosed through blood tests, urine samples, Pap smears, physical exams, fluid swabs, or a combination. At Gynecology and Cosmetic Surgery Center of Atlanta, we test for the following types of STDs:
- Genital warts
- HPV (human papillomavirus)
In general, patients who are sexually active, especially those who have had multiple partners, can benefit from routine STD testing. Dr. Sotomayor can discuss how often you should get tested based on your individual situation. If you require treatment for an STD, our team will guide you through the appropriate options to clear up your infection. The good news is that most STDs are very treatable.
