The STD clinic provides evaluation and treatment of sexually transmitted diseases (this can include a confidential HIV test). Our services are nonjudgmental and confidential, and no one is turned away for inability to pay.
If you are hearing impaired or speak another language, we can arrange an interpreter.
Who should be tested for STDs
STD testing is recommended for anyone engaging in vaginal, oral, and/or anal sex without a condom, particularly when having sex with multiple partners. Some STDs such as HIV and Hepatitis B can also be spread by sharing injection drug gear.
In Oregon, teens can consent to HIV and STD testing and treatment without a parent’s permission.
Conditions we check for:
- Vaginal infections like yeast or bacterial vaginosis
- Hepatitis C (if you have ever injected drugs)
- HIV (Offered confidentially as part of STD exam. Low-cost, anonymous testing is available at some community test sites. See HIV Testing for more info.)
- HPV (Genital warts. Visual check only, no treatment offered.)
- Herpes (visual check)
What to Expect at Your Visit
The way we check for STDs depends on what tests you want or need. We might need to check your urine, blood, or body (genitals, skin or mouth).
Gonorrhea and Chlamydia may not show up on a test for 4-7 days after a possible exposure. HIV and syphilis may not show up for 3 months, but can show up as early as 2 weeks.
