It is estimated that there are 20 million new STDs in the U.S. each year, and half of these are among young people ages 15 to 24 years. Across the nation, at any given time, there are more than 110 million total (new and existing) infections. These infections can lead to long-term health consequences, such as infertility; they can facilitate HIV transmission; and they have stigmatized entire subgroups of Americans.
If you think you have been exposed to a sexually transmitted disease, it is important to get tested. Some common symptoms of STDs include unusual odor, discharge from the vagina or penis, burning during urination and sores on the genitals. However, many STDs do not cause any symptoms and it is possible to spread these diseases and infections without ever having symptoms.
Our medical services include testing for the items listed below. At Clear Choice Clinic there is never a fee for your office visit. Treatment for some STDs are offered without expense to the patient, while referrals for other treatment may be necessary.
