STI Treatments and Full-Panel Testing
No matter your STI diagnosis, the Women’s Clinic of Atlanta is here to support you and offer treatment options, if necessary.
You can select one or more tests or choose a full panel screening. Our affordable tests screen for:
- Hepatitis B
- Hepatitis C
How Much Does STI Testing Cost?
Receiving the test results are free of charge, but low cost lab and treatment fees do apply. If you test positive for Trichomonas, Chlamydia, or Gonorrhea, we will schedule you a “Test of Cure” appointment one month after we prescribe medication. If you test positive for Syphilis, we will refer you for immediate treatment. However, other types of STIs can’t be cured, and the only treatment option is symptom management.
We can provide medical support for managing your STI symptoms and even offer advice on how to inform your past and present sexual partners. It’s important to note that the Women’s Clinic of Atlanta doesn’t provide emergency services. If you are experiencing potentially life-threatening symptoms or illnesses such as pelvic pain, abnormal bleeding, or fever, call 911 or visit an emergency room immediately.
