What Is STD Testing?
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.
What Can I Expect from STD Testing?
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:
- HPV/genital warts
- 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.

STD Testing FAQs
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.
