Information for Iowa City about STD Screening

According to the Center for Disease Control, around 19 million cases of STDs are diagnosed annually including cases many in Iowa City. STDs such as HIV, syphilis, hepatitis, herpes, gonorrhea, and chlamydia do not discriminate. If you believe you may have been exposed to a sexually transmitted disease, it is vital that you be tested as quickly as possible. At Health Testing Centers, we strive to make testing for STDs as hassle-free and private as possible. There is no need to make a face-to-face visit with your healthcare provider or stand in line at a local clinic. The first step to receiving peace of mind regarding your sexual health is to speak to one of our caring, professional nurses.

There is no need to delay receiving the testing you need to put your mind at ease. At Health Testing Centers, we value your privacy and your desire for reliable, confidential STD test results.

HIV, Hepatitis B, Herpes Simplex Virus (I/II, IgG), Syphilis The Benefits of Health Testing Centers STD Diagnostics Although the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimate that one out of every two sexually active individuals will be diagnosed with an STD by the time he or she is twenty-five, STDs are still an embarrassing subject for most people.

If you've been infected with an STD, you want a quick reliable diagnosis so that you can be treated as soon as possible, but you don't necessarily want that diagnosis to become part of your permanent medical history or a public health database.

Sexual Health Information and Articles

If you seek diagnosis and treatment through your family physician, in a county or some other government-sponsored clinic, your test results will become a permanent part of your health record. When you choose to be tested for STDs at Health Testing Centers, however, your test results are strictly confidential. We have highly experienced and knowledgeable nurses on staff who will sit down with you to review the results of your tests, answer any questions you may have, and review potential treatment options that will safeguard your confidentiality.

Knowing if You Have an STD By Understanding the Symptoms

If you know you have been exposed to an STD, but you're not entirely sure which STD you've been exposed to, one of our discreet, compassionate nurses can review the exposure circumstances with you to help you decide which testing option is right for you.

Sexually Transmitted Infection Stats for Iowa City

In recent years, Iowa City, IA data have echoed the trends occurring throughout the state for two serious sexually transmitted diseases, Chlamydia and gonorrhea. This is concerning, since both diseases can lead to infertility in women and serious health problems in both sexes. As the data indicate, syphilis, an incurable sexually transmitted disease has only affected a minuscule percentage of Iowa City's population in recent years. Fortunately, if treated in its early stages, frightening results such as neurological problems, blindness, mental illness and even death can be avoided. As the Iowa City data corroborate, women are much more likely to contract genital herpes than are men. On the national level, 21 percent of women and 11 percent of men were reported by the Centers for Disease Control to have HSV-2, the most common form of genital herpes. Perhaps due to the ongoing public education campaign regarding AIDS and HIV, 2011 data of reported cases show that this disease remains at a very low incidence in the overall population of Iowa City and the state as a whole. Nevertheless, the fact that other STD transmission rates remain high suggests that the behaviors that spread them could also lead to the transmission of AIDS and HIV.
