If you believe that you may have a sexually transmitted disease, it's important to know that STDs are actually quite common. You are certainly not alone. It's estimated that more than half of all people will contract a sexually transmitted disease at some point in their lifetime. While diseases such as chlamydia, gonorrhea, hepatitis, herpes, syphilis and HIV are far too common, the consequences can be serious, so you should be tested as quickly as possible if you believe you may have been exposed. Many STDs are asymptomatic. You may not even know you were exposed until after a sexual encounter takes place, and you may not even know what specific STD you were exposed to.
Health Testing Centers offers two convenient STD testing panels in Poway. STD Testing Panel Level 1 tests your blood for the presence of HIV, hepatitis B, herpes simplex virus (I/II, IgG) and syphilis, while STD Testing Panel Level 2 checks your blood for residual evidence of Chlamydia gonorrhea, HIV, hepatitis B and C, herpes simplex virus (I/II, IgG) and syphilis exposure.
Results are often available in as little as one to two days. You can rest assured that your easy-to-understand test results will always be available only to you. There is no need to visit your healthcare provider or even have your test results be a part of your permanent medical file. In the event you have questions about your results, our staff will also be happy to discuss them with you.
There is absolutely no need to worry about discretion. By taking charge of your own health and ordering a confidential STD test from Health Testing Centers today, you obtain peace of mind and begin treatment, as necessary. We even offer post-testing counseling to assist you in understanding potential treatment options.
