Confidential STD Testing in Oceanside and Carlsbad, CA
Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) are a major public health hazard. The Centers for Disease Control estimates there are 19 million new STD infections each year. Half of these infections are among young people aged 15 to 24 years. Sexual activity is most often the way STDs are transmitted, but they can be passed through IV drug needles, skin-to-skin, and breastfeeding.
Because these infections frequently have no symptoms, they often go undiagnosed and untreated. Failure to treat an STD can lead to severe health consequences, especially for women. The only way to know for sure is to be tested.
Here at Doctors Express Oceanside you can quickly be tested for the most common STDs. They are: Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, Herpes 1, Herpes 2, HIV, and Syphilis. Once a positive diagnosis is made, a treatment plan can be established.
The most important step is to get tested. At Doctors Express Oceanside, we know that confidentially is paramount. We will ensure that your results are kept private and that only you, your primary care physician and where appropriate, public health agencies are apprised of the results.
