Fort Myers, Florida STI testing FAQs.

Should You Get Tested for STIs in Florida?

Should I get tested for STIs?
Florida STI Testing. The Centers for Disease Control recommend STI/STD testing for anyone who has had new or multiple sex partners. Various sexual activities, including mutual masturbation, oral, vaginal, and anal sex, can put you at risk for STIs. Many STIs may not cause symptoms but are still transmissible. Condoms reduce the risk of STIs and pregnancy but are not 100% effective.

How long will my appointment take?

Most STI testing appointments, including consultation and testing, typically take about an hour.

What Are the Methods for STI Testing?

Our healthcare professionals will assess your risk and recommend appropriate tests. Common tests include:

  • Gonorrhea: Urine sample
  • Chlamydia: Urine sample
  • Syphilis: Blood work
  • HIV: Blood work

How Should I Prepare for My STI Testing Visit?

  • Schedule an appointment online or by phone.
  • Bring a valid photo ID.
  • Avoid urinating one hour before the visit for accurate test results.

      What’s the Difference Between an STI and an STD?

      STIs become STDs when symptoms are present. Both terms are used in sexual health discussions, but STD is commonly used even when there are no visible signs of infection.

      Do Minors Need Parental Permission for STI Testing in Florida?

      Minors under 18 can receive STI testing without parental consent in Florida. We encourage discussing your health with a trusted adult. Our services are confidential and provided at no cost.

      Are STIs Screened During Yearly Check-ups?

      Yearly check-ups do not automatically include STI screening. It’s important to specifically request STI tests from your physician, especially if you’ve had new or multiple sexual partners.

       

      How Will I Receive My STI Test Results?

      STI test results are typically available within 7-10 days. A follow-up appointment will be scheduled at the time of your testing to review your results.

      Regular STI testing is a key aspect of maintaining sexual health, especially in Florida. Understanding the process, preparing for your visit, and staying informed about your rights are essential. Remember, early detection and treatment are crucial in managing your sexual health.

      CONCERNED ABOUT AN STI?

      Chlamydia Testing

      The Syphilis test is a blood test that detects the presence of the antibodies the body generates to fight Syphilis. A positive Syphilis test could indicate either a current or a previous infection.
