We offer a wide variety of STD Testing to best meet your specific situation. All of the following STD Tests are offered individually or within a panel designed for your particular needs.
If this list of options seems overwhelming, don’t worry! Your std testing counselor will be able to tailor your testing to your specific needs with only a few basic questions, and will most likely be able to offer you an STD testing panel that will combine the most common tests below into one, single, more affordable panel that will leave you with complete peace of mind!
HIV-1/HIV-2 (Human Immunodeficiency Virus Type 1 & 2) Antibody Screen with Western Blot Confirmation
If your exposure was over three months ago, this particular test will look for the antibodies that are produced by your body’s immune system in response to the virus.
HIV DNA by PCR
For those people who’s exposure has been more recent, this highly advanced test can detect minute traces of the virus’s DNA in your system as early as 72 hours from exposure.
RPR (Rapid Plasma Reagin) For Syphilis
The RPR test is the most common syphilis test performed and is done so with a blood specimen. If the RPR test comes back positive a confirmatory test (fluorescent treponemal antibody absorption or FTA-ABS test) will be performed at no additional charge.
Chlamydia Urine Test
This test is performed with a simple urine specimen. Using nucleic acid amplification to detect the presence of the bacterium, this test has been proven to be much more effective than a swab test, and much less painful.
Gonorrhea Urine Test
As with the Chlamydia test, this test is also performed with a simple urine specimen. Using nucleic acid amplification to detect the presence of the bacterium, this test has been proven to be much more effective than a swab test, and much less painful.
Hepatitis B Surface Antigen Test
This is the most frequently and easily performed test for hepatitis B and is the first test to show abnormal results. HBsAg generally indicates active hepatitis B virus infection.
Hepatitis B Surface Antibody Test
This antibody appears approximately 4 weeks after the disappearance of the surface antigen and signifies the end of the acute infection phase. HBsAb also signifies immunity to subsequent infections.
Hepatitis C Core Antibody Test
This antibody appears approximately 1 month after infection with HBsAg and declines over several years. HBcAb is also present in people with chronic hepatitis.
Complete Blood Count (CBC) With Differential Test
The CBC and Differential test provide a snapshot of your body’s immune system and can provide invaluable information that might indicate a possible infection. White blood cell counts, red blood cell counts, hemoglobin, hematocrit, and platelet counts are just a few of the indicators included in this series.
Total Urinary Analysis (UA) involves several routine tests on a urine specimen. Most bacterial infections can be identified using this test, even if the infection is not necessarily an STD.
