Visiting a clinic to get tested for gonorrhea, chlamydia, or any other sexually transmitted disease can be quite time-consuming, sometimes requiring multiple visits. STD Express Clinic offers patients a chance to get tested and treated the same day.
Why is STD Express Clinic preferred by patients?
- STD Express Clinic in Arlington, Virginia near Pentagon City is open 7 days a week, and you can perform discreet, safe testing without needing to book an appointment for the tests in advance.
- You can expect to get the testing and treatment on the same day (in some cases). Test results are provided to the patient in discreet manner, and treatment options are available in the clinic at an additional cost.
How is gonorrhea testing done?
For gonorrhea testing, you only need to provide a urine sample. The method used is the nucleic acid amplification test (NAAT). The aim of this investigation is to detect the presence of bacteria that triggers gonorrhea. If the bacteria are detected in the sample, you would test positive and have an option of discussing treatment with the doctor in the clinic.
With gonorrhea, it’s important to start treatment fast.
If you allow yourself to go too long undiagnosed, treating the disease becomes far more complicated.
Simply walk in to STD Express Clinic and get tested. Same day treatment option also available at an additional cost of $50.
How is chlamydia testing done?
STD Express Clinic uses the same NAAT to detect the presence of chlamydia infection. Once again, a urine sample of the patient is needed to conduct the test. The test aims to detect the presence of the bacterium Chlamydia Trachomatis. Testing takes only a couple of minutes. Just like the gonorrhea testing, this one too does not involve any swabbing, pricking, or fasting.
Just like gonorrhea, at STD Express Clinic, you could be treated for chlamydia on the same day at an additional cost of $50. If your chlamydia test results come out positive, it is advisable to get yourself checked for gonorrhea as well.
You may get in touch with the clinic doctor anytime and find out about the possible treatment options.
