STD Testing in Malden, MA
Certain internal infections, including many sexually transmitted diseases, may not display outward symptoms until substantial damage has already been done to your body. In order to detect these viruses and infections, blood tests can be performed, with treatment available for many STDs and STIs when detected early. AFC Urgent Care Malden has an on-site laboratory and can perform discreet and confidential STD testing and begin treatment seven days a week for walk-in patients.
Types of STD Tests Available at AFC Urgent Care Malden
AFC Urgent Care Malden offers testing for many sexually transmitted diseases and infections, including:
- Hepatitis B and C
- Herpes (HSV1 and HSV2)
Before the tests are conducted, your medical provider will conduct a short examination and go over your sexual history and any potential exposure in order to determine which test or test will be the most appropriate for your needs. Tests are available to detect single STDs, or a full panel may be ordered to check for everything. STD tests can be performed by taking a blood, urine or tissue sample which is brought to our lab on-site. Results are turned around within a couple of days, unlike clinics that outsource lab testing to off-site facilities. As soon as your results come in, a member of our staff will be able to contact you to let you know your status as well as begin any necessary treatment. If your STD has progressed or is more serious, we can refer you to a specialist for more concentrated care. While most STD tests are covered under insurance, AFC Urgent Care Malden offers low-cost tests and bundle pricing for a full panel.
