Medical ServicesSTI Testing
Medical Services is committed to assisting students in learning about preventing sexually transmitted infections (STIs). Some important recommendations to prevent STIs include:
- Know your sexual partner(s). Before you become intimate have a discussion about STIs, sexual history (yours and your partners), and be honest
- Use a condom
- If you or your partner think you might have symptoms of an STI, make an appointment to see a Medical Services provider
- Know which sexual practices put you at greater risk of STIs
- Recognize that substance use increases risk of STIs
- STI Testing
- HIV Testing
- Health Topics and Resources
Most STIs have a medical test, but not all of these tests are reliable. Medical Services believes that it is not good care to test for an STI without education about the typical symptoms of the STI, reliability of the test, potential treatments, and what happens if you do not seek treatment.
All of our services are provided in a confidential environment that respects your privacy.
An evaluation for an STI will include a discussion with a Medical Services provider about your concerns and possible symptoms, a physical examination, and testing, if appropriate. Results of the physical are discussed with you during the same visit. Lab results are reported to you as soon as they become available, generally within two to three business days.
Confidential HIV testing is offered through GHAP.
Sexual and reproductive health resources include access to free condoms and lube.
