Do I have an STI / STD (Sexually Transmitted Infection / Disease)?

St. Catherine Family Health Care offers free testing for the sexually transmitted diseases including Bacterial Vaginosis, Chlamydia and Gonorrhea.  We also can screen for  Syphilis, HIV, HPV, Herpes, Hepatitis B & C, Trichomoniasis and Yeast infections.  We can treat you with the appropriate medication or refer you to a specialist if needed. It is extremely important to get treatment.

Our testing regimen requires a pregnancy test visit along with 3 clinic visits. Visits may involve urine sample, blood draw, pap test and/or pelvic exam, and swabbing of affected areas, along with education about STDs and their prevention. Test results will not be given over the phone. The office visit is always free and confidential.

Your first visit will involve collecting either or both urine and blood samples. For accurate test results, you must not be menstruating and you need to hold your urine for at least one hour before your appointment. You may eat normally the day of the appointment.

Please call 405-388-7035 or text 406-579-8917 to schedule your STD testing and treatment visits!
