Fort Myers Florida STD Testing
Chlamydia Testing and Diagnosis
If you suspect you’ve contracted Chlamydia, really there is only one way for you to find out for sure and that’s to get tested. Testing for Chlamydia is simple. All you need to do is provide a urine sample. Some facilities can encourage you to have a swab test instead. The swab test is generally preferred because cells can be collected directly from the site of infection. If you think you might have Chlamydia, don’t delay getting tested. Chlamydia is curable.
Gonorrhoea Testing and Diagnosis
The only way to find out if you have Gonorrhea is to get tested. If you do not wish to go to your GP then you can choose to get private testing. Through Verity Medical Clinic STD testing services it is possible to have a Gonorrhea test within a few days of having sex. If you feel there is even a remote chance that you’ve been exposed to the infection, early diagnosis and treatment of Gonorrhea will reduce the risk of any complications developing such as pelvic inflammatory diseases and infection of the testicles. For Gonorrhea testing, women are often encouraged to go for the swab test in which a nurse collects a sample of cells from your cervix or vagina. For men, Gonorrhea testing is done on a urine sample.
Syphilis Testing and Diagnosis
If you suspect you have syphilis, call right now at 239.433.1929 and visit our STI testing facility as soon as you can. Syphilis is a curable sexually transmitted infection but if left untreated, it can cause blindness, paralysis and even death. The earlier you get diagnosed for syphilis, the better are your chances of survival. Syphilis testing is easy and quick but a physical examination of your genitals usually precedes the procedure. For men, this involves looking at the penis, foreskin and urethra. For women, it involves an internal examination of the vagina. Syphilis testing is done via a blood test.
HIV Testing and Diagnosis
HIV is a virus most commonly caught by having unprotected sex or by sharing infected needles to inject drugs. Once contracted, the virus weakens the body’s ability to fight infections and diseases, such as cancer. AIDS is the final stage of HIV infection. Currently, there is no cure for HIV but an early diagnosis of the condition leaves room for treatments to be carried out to enable people with the virus to live a fulfilling life despite having the deadly infection. If you think you might have exposed yourself to HIV infection, you should get tested immediately. The earlier HIV is detected, the more likely it is that treatment will be successful.
