A Woman’s Choice provides free STI TESTING for Gonorrhea and Chlamydia, by a urine sample, for our pregnancy test patients who are at risk.

The Center for Disease Control (CDC) estimates that nearly 20 million new sexually transmitted infections occur every year in this country, half among young people ages 15-24.

STI stands for “Sexually Transmitted Infection.”  Many people use both STI and STD interchangeably when discussing sexual health. An STI is an infection that does not show any physical signs or symptoms. It is contracted from another infected person through sexual activity, including vaginal, oral and anal sex, and skin-to-skin contact. 

It becomes an STD (Sexually Transmitted Disease) when symptoms appear. It’s important to remember that not all infected people will have signs or symptoms. You do not have to have symptoms to be contagious; you can spread the disease any time you engage in sexual behavior.

If you are considering an abortion, STI screening is extremely important because during the procedure, an STI can be spread throughout the reproductive system causing additional complications. For instance, if you test positive for Gonorrhea or Chlamydia and have an abortion before you are treated, your risk of getting Pelvic Inflammatory Disease increases.  All women considering an abortion should be tested for STIs, even if they are not experiencing any symptoms to ensure that there are no possible complications.

One of the clinic staff members from A Woman’s Choice will call you within a week of your test to make an appointment for you to come in to receive and discuss your results.

Your identifying information will be reported to the Dept. of Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC); this is a requirement for all health care providers who offer STI testing and treatment. However, beyond this required reporting, all testing information will be kept confidential.

No, we do not offer treatment. If you have a positive test result, it will be reported to the Department of Health, who will contact you for treatment and follow up.
