Getting tested for STDs is a basic part of taking care of your health. As a free clinic serving Contra Costa County for over 35 years, Options Health provides free STD testing and diagnosis for chlamydia and gonorrhea. We strongly recommend annual testing for anyone who is sexually active, as well as additional testing after possible exposure.
DID YOU KNOW?
We offer confidential urine testing (not a blood draw) for the diagnosis of chlamydia and gonorrhea. If indicated, treatment will be provided for chlamydia and a referral for the treatment of gonorrhea, in addition to providing information about ways to reduce your risk. If requested, we can offer counseling on how to relay the news to your partner.
Chlamydia is on the rise with the majority of cases from young teenagers – in 2019, STD rates in California reached their highest levels in 30 years.
Why is it so important to diagnose and treat STDs like Chlamydia and Gonorrhea?
If you’ve had sexual contact with someone, make a free appointment at Options Health. It’s important to note that symptoms can come and go over time, but that doesn’t necessarily mean your STD is gone. Many people with an STD don’t exhibit symptoms, and STD testing is the only way to make sure. The sooner you find out you have an STD, the sooner you can get the care you need to get healthy.
