Get Yourself Tested for sexually transmitted diseases/infections as regular part of your checkup to stay healthy and prevent the spread of infection to others.
An estimated 20 million people are diagnosed with new sexually transmitted infections (STIs) each year. While it may be uncomfortable to discuss your sexual health with a provider, it is one of the most important things you can do to protect your health.
Many STIs do not cause symptoms, so the only sure way to know is to get tested. Letting an STI go untested and untreated can lead to serious health issues such as infertility, cancer or HIV. Testing is quick, simple and usually painless.
Norton Healthcare offers several same-day options for testing and confidential online scheduling. Reserve your spot at a Norton Immediate Care Center or make a same-day appointment at any Norton Prompt Care at Walgreens location. You also can make testing part of your annual wellness visit with a primary care provider at any Norton Community Medical Associates location.
Most insurance plans, including Medicare, cover most of the cost of STI screenings. Check with your insurance provider before scheduling to understand costs.
