One of the important responsibilities of being sexually active is getting tested regularly for sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). This is vitally important because some STDs have no obvious signs. At Life Care for Women, we offer STD testing so you can rest assured knowing that you've not contracted a sexually transmitted disease and do not have the chance of passing something on to your partner. Board-certified gynecologist Dr. Linda Sodoma and her staff know how important this regular testing is, which is why you can count on our clinic to provide compassionate care in a caring, safe environment. For more information or to schedule an exam, contact our Gilbert, AZ office.

Dr. Sodoma provides her patients with a variety of sexually transmitted disease tests in her comfortable, relaxing, private treatment rooms. Knowing that these tests can cause anxiety, it's our goal to guide you through the process so you can feel empowered and rest assured that you are in great hands.

Depending on your particular symptoms, if you have any, the process may vary. Generally, we'll take a blood sample, which can test for a variety of STDs. Some of the common STDs we test for include:

  • HIV
  • Chlamydia
  • Gonorrhea
  • HPV/genital warts
  • Syphilis
  • Genital herpes

Once the results come in, we will contact you and let you know your results. If additional steps need to be taken, we will work with you to help you take those steps. We suggest getting tested for most STDs regularly, even at your yearly well-woman exam to stay on top of your sexual health.

Best doctor and best staff. They are always available and incredibly knowledgeable. I always recommend them. Incredibly friendly front desk staff as well!

I have to share my happy story with everyone about Dr. Linda Sodoma. I started seeing her October 2022 to discuss my female issues. The moment she walked in the examination room I felt a vibe that I knew right then she was the right doctor for me. She was humble nice and caring, she took the time to listen and answer the questions I asked on every visit, it only got better and better and she always made me comfortable. Fast forward to 12/06/22 to my surgery day. God, know I was scared and most definitely afraid of going under, but once my angel walked in ( Dr. Sodoma ) I knew I was gonna be okay and she reassures me. My mom has always told me growing up there always an angel that watching high and low places, in other words high meaning in heaven where she is now and low meaning on earth meaning Dr. Sodoma. I can’t forget to salute her team in her office because they were fabulous on every visit. Post Op see God will send good people your way when asked and needed and today I needed everything good to come my way to get thur this. Post Op I couldn’t ask for a better nurse. Nurse Tanner at Banner Baybrook in Gilbert he helped out more than he will ever know, he kept me calm when it came to getting my IV started, I had told him my veins were small and that it was always hard for anyone who tried to stick me it would be hard so he went and got the ultra sound machine and bang he got it on the first try, and he answered all my questions so thank you Tanner. Next came the recovery room nurse Charm always made sure I was okay when I would wake up or go back to sleep, everytime my eyes opened she was right there feeding me ice chips until the next time I woke up. Thank you nurse Charm. Last but not least nurse Genny, words can’t express how great she was handing me in my room. I didn’t have to ring for nothing because she was always there like she knew my body also when it was time for me to void along with everything else she was as there, so thank you nurse Genny. God really do answer prayers and today all mine were met. I had to post a review to let everyone know how marvelous Dr. Sodoma and team treated me today like other days. Thanks for everything Dr. Sodoma your patient Dorcas

About Us
What should I do before testing?

There is nothing you need to do medically to prepare for your STD testing. One crucial part of this test is we ask our patients to prepare a mental or physical note of any changes, irritations, or symptoms that they may have noticed. No matter how minor, noticing changes in your body will help us to determine the cause precisely in case of a positive test result.

How often should I get tested?

Here at Life Care for Women, we understand that STD testing can feel rather intimidating. However, for our sexually active patients, we urge discussing testing with your women's health provider at every check-up as part of your routine care. You will also want to book an additional appointment if you discover that you have been exposed to an STD or if you find out you are pregnant.

Can STDs be treated?

If diagnosed with an STD, there is good news for you in that most STDs are easily and painlessly treatable. This means that not only will we be able to treat your symptoms, but in many cases, we will also be able to heal you of the overall STD. However, you should be sure to follow any at-home care and medication instructions you are assigned, as some STDs can become resistant to medication over time.
