Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs)
STDs are acquired by having sex or sexual contact with an infected person. Examples of these diseases include HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus), syphilis, chlamydia, gonorrhea, and herpes. STDs infect more than 10 million Americans each year. People may be unaware they are infected with an STD because many times the symptoms are not easily noticed. STDs can occur again and again. They can cause serious damage if left untreated, including blindness, sterility, and death. STDs are especially dangerous for pregnant women and their babies.
Treatment and Clinical Services
Treatment is provided upon referrals from community physicians, the Texas Department of State Health Services, and local clinics. HIV counseling and testing is also provided.
In order for you to be treated for an STD, schedule an appointment and bring your current lab results (30 days of test date) and a prescription if applicable.
ConfidentialityClinical Health Services staff are bound by law to confidentiality regarding any diagnosis and treatment. Our staff will not discuss your health with anyone but you per HIPAA regulations.
After Your Clinic Visit
If you were diagnosed with an STD:
- Take all medicine as directed.
- Refer your sex partner(s) to the HIV/STD clinic for testing & treatment.
- Contact the clinic immediately if symptoms re-occur.
