STD Testing

STD Testing in New Bedford & Dartmouth, MA

Some infections do not have outward symptoms, showing no signs of something being wrong until the disease has had a chance to grow and progress, limiting available treatment options. Sexually transmitted diseases and infections can often be present for months, even years, without showing outward symptoms and can only be detected via a specialized lab test. AFC Urgent Care New Bedford offers discreet, walk-in STD testing seven days a week.

What kind of STD tests are available at AFC Urgent Care New Bedford?

Some of the tests available for patients at AFC Urgent Care New Bedford include:

  • Syphilis
  • HIV and AIDS
  • Herpes (HSV1 and HSV2)
  • Chlamydia
  • Gonorrhea
  • Hepatitis B
  • Hepatitis C

Most visits to our center for STD testing will involve a short exam to go over your sexual history and potential of exposure to determine what infections you should be tested for. If it has been a while since your last test, your physician may recommend a full STD workup to detect further infections. STD testing is recommended when switching partners, having sex with multiple partners or at least every six months. Results will be turned around in a couple of days, much quicker than if you visited a clinic that used an external facility. As soon as your results come in, we will be able to recommend treatment options or refer you to an additional doctor for specialized care. Low-cost testing is available for self-paying patients, with bundle pricing available for multiple tests.
