STD Testing in Moberly, MO
Getting tested is a great way to protect you and your partner’s sexual health. If you think you may have been exposed to an infection, give our STD Testing services a try.
Randolph County Health Department offers STD Testing for gonorrhea, chlamydia, trichomonas, HIV, and syphilis in Moberly, MO. We can also diagnose herpes or warts by clinical appearance of lesions. Additionally, positive STD counseling and treatment are free of charge.
Common symptoms of STDs include discharge from the penis or vagina, itching, sores on the genitals, and burning during urination. However, it’s important to note that many infections cause no symptoms at all. Many people spread STDs without ever having symptoms themselves. Some women also falsely assume they will receive STD Testing when they have another exam—such as a pap test—but this is untrue.
Keep in mind that there’s no single test for every single sexually transmitted disease. Tests are specific to each infection, and answering questions about your sexual practices, your symptoms, your medications, and your sexual history can help determine what is most suitable for you. Your test may include a blood sample, a urine sample, a physical exam, or a swab to collect discharge, tissue, cell, or saliva samples. Some STDs can be diagnosed based on your symptoms or physical exam, while others may require a sample sent to the lab.
Although we are primarily a women’s clinic, we offer HIV and syphilis testing for males. Referrals for other male STD testing are available upon request.
