STD Screening & Treatment
If you are having sex, make screening for STDs a normal part of your check-up, along with HIV testing.
Many STDs are spread because people do not even know they have them. Many young gay and bisexual men, transgender women, and women of color in Los Angeles are at higher risk for STDs.
STD screening at APLA Health is:
- Available on a walk-in basis—no appointment necessary
- Provided by experienced testing counselors
You’ll also receive information about HIV, safer sex practices, risk reduction, and you’ll get a copy of your results.
It is important to understand the impact of STDs in L.A. Our STD Fact Sheet highlights specific STDs and shares important facts, symptoms, ways of transmission, and treatment options for each.
