STD Testing & Care

STD Testing & Care

Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) are on the rise and awareness on the signs and symptoms is crucial for all individuals. These diseases can inflict enduring health consequences if ignored or untreated. If you or a loved one suspect infection with an STD do not hesitate to seek evaluation

Mercy Emergency ER in Sugar Land Texas is a freestanding emergency room that is well-staffed and equipped and offers Same-Day STD Testing and emergency care with expertise and compassion.

When is STD testing recommended?

Sexually active individuals should consider testing if:

  • Your partner has received an STD diagnosis.
  • You observe unusual discharge from the genital area.
  • You encounter sensations of burning, itching, or notice bumps around the genital region or inner thighs.
  • As part of a routine STD testing regimen
  • In the event of starting a new relationship with a partner.
  • When you or your partner may have sexual relations with others.

Remember, the absence of symptoms is not a dependable indicator of whether someone may or may not have an STD. When uncertain, undergoing testing is advised.

Preventive Measures

You can reduce the risk of contracting an STD by:

  • Consistently and correctly using condoms during sexual activity.
  • Establishing a long-term, mutually monogamous relationship with a partner.
