For testing involving urine samples, including chlamydia and gonorrhea, do not urinate or engage in sexual intercourse for one hour before testing.

Many STD tests require a genital exam.

Rapid HIV testing can be done by swabbing the inside of your mouth. The results are available in 20-30 minutes.

Counseling and confidential (private) testing for HIV are provided by trained staff who are sensitive to your needs and concerns.
