STI/STD Information

What will I do when I get there?
First we will need you to fill out a couple of forms. Then you’ll provide a urine sample that will be used to run the pregnancy and/or the STI test. You will have a chance to share with a client advocate how you are feeling and ask the questions you have in regards to your possible pregnancy.

Can I bring a friend?
Absolutely! Having a friend there for support can really help at a time like this. You may bring anyone you like, however, you may want your friend or family member to wait while you are in the counseling room. This will allow you to confidentially ask questions and discuss your needs with a trained client advocate. At any time during your appointment you can choose to invite your friend to join you.

How accurate are your pregnancy tests?
Our lab quality tests are 99.5% accurate. It can detect an HCG level of 5. An HCG level of 4 would be negative.

Should I see a doctor if my second test appears to be negative and have not started my period?
If you have concerns about missed periods and your pregnancy test continues to be negative, you should see your health care provider for assessment. If you need resources for health care, Options for Women can provide you referrals.
 
Can I have a retest if my test appears to be positive?
Yes, you may be rescheduled for another test. The HCG hormone doubles every 2.2 days during the first three months of pregnancy.

Are your services confidential?
All services provided at Options for Women are confidential. We will not share information about your services at our clinic unless we have your written permission or are required by mandatory reporting laws.

Should I get tested? Wouldn’t I know if I had an infection?
The Centers for Disease Control recommends STI/STD testing any time you have had new or multiple sex partners. There are four types of sex that can put you at risk for contracting an STI: mutual masturbation, oral sex, vaginal sex and anal sex.

Many infections may not cause symptoms but can still be passed between partners. Also remember that while condoms may reduce the risk of getting pregnant or contracting an STI/STD, even if used consistently and correctly each and every time, they cannot provide 100% protection.
