The Health Departments offer testing and treatment for sexually transmitted infections (often referred to as STDs or STIs).
There is a charge for testing and for treatment.
Standard STD/STI examinations include testing for:
- Herpes (visual exam – a culture will be ordered as necessary. This test is an additional fee)
- Genital Warts (visual exam)
- Trichomoniasis – (swab + microscopic exam) **PLEASE NOTE: This test can only be performed by a nurse practitioner, so may not be available at all locations/clinics.**
Treatment with antibiotics for Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, Syphilis and Trichomoniasis is included in the standard STI fee. Antiviral treatment for Herpes is called into a local pharmacy and you will pay the pharmacy for these medications.
