HIV and STI Testing
SPOT HIV/STI Office Based Testing and Treatment Services:
HIV: For all youth seeking HIV testing, a sexual health questionnaire will be completed with a discussion of strategies/goals to meet sexual health goals. Rapid testing is done with a finger stick or blood draw and results are available in 20 minutes. A positive rapid test result will be confirmed with a blood draw and additional test. Youth with a confirmed positive result will be connected to HIV medical care and social services.
STI Testing is available for: syphilis, gonorrhea, chlamydia, Herpes, and trich. Herpes testing can only be done if you have a visible sore, otherwise you will need to see another clinic that can do a blood test. Herpes and trich testing can only be done during the Medical services hours (see days & times in the Medical Services section).
All results are available in 2-3 days. FREE medical treatment is offered for all positive STI results.
We now offer a free in-home HIV test that can be shipped to you in 2-3 days and you can take at home.
