Get Tested, Get Treated!

Anyone under the age of 25 who is sexually active should get tested annually. At any age, if you think you may have been exposed to a sexually transmitted disease, you and your sex partner(s) should visit a health clinic, hospital, or doctor for testing and treatment.

As with all appointments, your information is confidential. The results will be the same day unless the appointment is near the end of the day, in which case they will be back before noon the next day.
