What is an STD test?
About our lab and testing service
Before booking your appointment please note:
How do I get tested for an STD?
There are many ways you can get tested for STD, depending on what type of STD you’re testing for. Doctors can get samples through blood draw, finger prick, urine sample, mouth swab, genital swab, discharge swab, or sore swab.
Can you self-check for STDs?
There are at-home STD tests you can use to test yourself. However, they aren’t FDA-approved as the results they generate aren’t accurate and reliable.
How do you know if you have an STD without getting tested?
Possible signs that you have an STD are:
- White, greenish or yellowish vaginal discharge
- Penile discharge
- Strong odor in the genitalia
- Itching or irritation in the private area
- Pain during sexual intercourse
- Painful urination
How long does it take for an STD to show up on a test?
An STD may show up on a test five days to two weeks after exposure. If you test too early, you may get a false-negative result.
What happens when an STD goes untreated?
If an STD is left untreated, whether it has symptoms or not, it may cause infertility, blindness, neurologic issues, transmission from mother to child, and birth defects (for pregnant women infected with an STD).
What is the difference between emergency and urgent care?
The difference between emergency and urgent care is that emergency rooms in hospitals treat life-threatening conditions and injuries, whereas urgent care clinics treat illnesses and injuries that require immediate medical attention but are non-life-threatening.
Are your urgent care centers open after hours?
Yes. Most of our urgent care centers are open after hours, making health care more accessible for all residents in NYC.
Should I make an appointment for urgent care?
Not necessarily. Most urgent cares accept walk-in patients. But if you want shorter wait times, you can book an appointment through phone or online.
Can I go to urgent care for non-emergency?
Yes. You can go to urgent care for consultations, physicals, primary care, lab tests, and more.
Can I pay for urgent care appointment without insurance?
If you have no insurance, we provide our services without insurance for self-pay patients, giving you the care when you need it most.
