Sexually Transmitted Infections
Health Departments offer testing and treatment for sexually transmitted infections (often referred to as STD’s or STI’s).
There is a charge for testing and treatment.
Standard STD/STI testing includes testing for:
- Herpes (visual exam – a culture will be ordered, if indicated. This test will be an additional fee)
- Genital Warts (visual exam)
- Trichomoniasis – (swab + microscopic exam)
Treatment for Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, Syphilis and Trichomoniasis (antibiotics) is included in the standard STD fee. If needed, treatment for herpes (antivirals) will be called into a local pharmacy, and the patient will need to pay the pharmacy directly for those medications.
