Symptoms of STDs can vary depending on the specific illness. Common symptoms can include:
- A burning or painful sensation while urinating
- Rashes, bumps or sores in the genital or buttock area
- Itching, swelling or pain in the vagina, penis or anus
- Unusual discharge from the genitals
- Flu-like symptoms, such as fever, fatigue, swollen lymph nodes or body aches
While the above symptoms can impact anyone, specific symptoms for men and women can differ. STD symptoms for women can include pain during sex or bleeding from the vagina. STD symptoms for men can include tender or swollen testicles.
Many of these symptoms can be caused by other illnesses as well. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, it is important to get an STD screening to determine the best treatment for you.
STD Testing and Screening
At GoHealth Urgent Care we can test for most STDs. Your STD screening begins with a confidential virtual or in-center visit.
STD testing can vary depending on the type of condition you might have. Additionally, based on other information you share, a provider may recommend an STD test even if you are not experiencing symptoms.
Some STDs require a blood test, a urine culture or a swab of the area that is then sent out to the lab. Other STDs, like herpes or genital warts, can sometimes be evaluated and diagnosed with only a physical exam.
We do not offer Pap smears or HPV testing, but we can connect you with an in-network provider who can help.
