STD Testing and Treatment Options at PGOMG
PGOMG is committed to providing thorough STD testing and treatment, while maintaining the privacy of its patients at all times. Screenings for STDs may include blood tests, cultures, and a visual exam. Those patients who receive a positive test result after an STD screening will be promptly informed of their diagnosis, and our specialists will determine the best possible course of treatment, if treatment is available.
STDs are caused by bacterial, parasitic, or viral infections that are spread during any form of sexual activity. Some STDs exhibit symptoms, such as Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, and Genital Warts, in which patients can experience a variety of pains, burning sensations, itching, and etc. But some STDs do not exhibit any symptoms whatsoever, and can go undetected for years if left undiagnosed. PGOMG encourages patients who believe that they have contracted an STD to schedule an appointment for a screening.
PGOMG also encourages patients to make intelligent choices in order to protect themselves from STDs while engaging in sexual intercourse. Condoms protect against most sexually transmitted diseases and infections, but there is a wide array of contraceptive options available to patients at PGOMG. For more information on our contraceptive options, contact your PGOMG provider.
