Information for Littleton about STD Screening

At Health Testing Centers, we completely understand the importance of reliable, confidential STD testing in Littleton. This is why we offer a variety of testing options to meet your needs. Along with individual STD tests for herpes, HIV, hepatitis, gonorrhea, syphilis, and chlamydia, we also offer comprehensive tests to provide you with greater peace of mind.

When you are concerned that you may have been exposed to an STD, it is crucial that you receive results as quickly as possible. Not only is this a matter of putting your mind at ease, but early testing also provides you with the ability to obtain appropriate treatment as quickly as possible. While it is vital that you take advantage of fast testing, it is completely understandable that you may experience some apprehension about STD testing.

Our Peace of Mind Level II Panel includes the following tests:

Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, HIV, Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, Herpes Simplex Virus (I/II, IgG), Syphilis. Since many STDs have no symptoms, having an STD screening can detect diseases so proper treatment can be obtained. Untreated STDs can cause sterility in both men and women, and women can experience further consequences of untreated STDs such as infertility, ectopic pregnancies, pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) and cervical cancer. Certain STDs can also cause health issues for newborn babies.

Can I order labs for HIV?

The blood tests for HIV are the most common form of detecting the disease. The test identifies antibodies that have been produced by the immune system of the infected person. Some tests are quicker than others in identifying antibodies. If you believe that you may have been exposed to the virus then you should get an HIV test done as this will help you answer the question and more importantly if you do have the disease, then you can still get to live a full and healthy life with early detection and treatment programs.

Is there a chlamydia test?

Getting a blood test done for Chlamydia can enable you to find out if you have been infected with the disease and subsequently get treatment for it. Since Chlamydia is exclusively transmitted through sexual intercourse most of these tests are done on sexually active women of 24 years or younger. There are a number of tests that can be done to detect the disease but the most effective ones use blood samples for detection. Chlamydia is one of the most common Sexually Transmitted Infections (STI), so if you are promiscuous, then you should go for a test just to rule it out.

What lab test is for herpes?

The herpes simplex virus (HSV) can cause small painful blister like sores on many parts of the body. It is a common sexually transmitted infection, so any person who is very sexually active or has many sexual partners should get the test done, even if they always practice safe sex. There are many tests for the herpes simplex virus, but the most effective and rapid ones are the ones that make use of blood samples. So, it is a good idea to get the test done if you want to avoid the irksome blister-like sores that can develop as a result of the disease.

What does a syphilis test do for me?

Syphilis is a highly common form of sexually transmitted infection and therefore, every person who is overtly sexually active should get the tests done. The blood tests that are done to confirm syphilis are the most effective. The more quickly the disease is detected, the faster the treatment for the disease can begin. As syphilis can also spread through kissing and oral sex it is highly contagious and so sexually active people must bear in mind to periodically get tested for the disease particularly if any of the symptoms show up.

Is it important to screen for Hep C?

Blood tests against the Hepatitis C virus look for the genetic material (RNA) of the virus that causes hepatitis or for the proteins (antibodies) that are made by the immune system to fight the disease. The HCV test is done to find out if a person is infected with the hepatitis virus and start treating them for it. It is also done for blood donors as well as for identifying the particular strain of Hepatitis that is causing the infection so that a proper medical treatment process may be initiated for them.

Sexually Transmitted Infection Stats for Littleton

The number of infections in the United States has increased to 19 million in recent history. Though most instances occur in people between the ages of 15 and 24, the implications are still alarming particularly for local communities such as Littleton, CO. The data suggests that syphilis rates in Littleton have decreased markedly with the adoption of medical interventions. Syphilis was once an incurable disease that was directly linked to birth defects, heart difficulties, neurological problems, blindness, mental illness and even death. New cases of gonorrhea are also on the rise in Littleton, CO. Gonorrhea is rarely transmitted through oral sex, but it can be passed through vaginal or anal sex. It can also be transmitted through pregnancy. Acute cases of all types of hepatitis remain consistently low in the CTIY population over the past five years. As is the case with Chlamydia, however, hepatitis often has few or no discernible symptoms. This underscores the importance of ongoing public education and testing for high risk groups, including men having sex with men and intravenous drug users.
