Does planned parenthood do free std tests? 

Some Planned Parenthood health centers can provide STD testing for free, and can help you get health care that you can afford. And many Planned Parenthood health centers provide services on a sliding scale. This means that you may get free or low-cost STD testing, depending on your income.

Whether or not a health center provides services for free or at low-cost depends on a lot of different factors, including the amount of funding the health center gets from the state. Recently, the Trump administration forced Planned Parenthood out of the federal Title X program, which provided funds for patients to get free or low-cost services. We’re fighting rules like this to help everyone access the care they need. 

Give your local Planned Parenthood a call to see if they do free STD testing, or if they have any programs that you can apply to for discounted care. 

STD testing is really important, so high five for taking responsibility for your sexual health!
