Discreet, Confidential STD Screening & Treatment in Chicago
Sexually transmitted diseases, or STDs, are on the rise among the population. All Women’s Medical Center provides STD screening and treatment for Chicagoland patients looking to stop the spreading of STDs responsibly. Although you may think you’re being safe by using condoms or other forms of protection, regular testing is equally essential for your reproductive health. Because STDs often produce no symptoms or flu-like symptoms, it can be difficult to diagnose one unless it’s something your doctor is specifically looking for during your visit. However, the earlier you detect and treat an STD, the better it can be managed with minimal side effects.
Factors That May Increase Your Risk for STDs
If you’re sexually active, even if you’re in a committed monogamous relationship, you owe it to yourself to get regularly tested. Sometimes worrying about something such as whether or not you have a sexually transmitted disease can be far scarier than actually knowing. All Women’s Medical Center recommends getting tested annually for STDs as part of your well-woman exam, especially if any of the following apply:
- You’re sexually active and under 25
- You’re having unprotected sex
- You’re having sex with multiple partners
- You have HIV
- You’ve been forced to engage in sexual activity against your will
Address Concerns Regarding Sexually Transmitted Diseases
Sexually transmitted diseases are more than just an individual health concern. They may be spread to any future sexual partners you have. They also present certain risks during pregnancy, including increasing your chances for experiencing a miscarriage or delivering prematurely. Whether you’re here to be tested or you need treatment for an STD, you can expect to receive compassionate care from our staff.
