HIV and STI Testing
Due to COVID-19 precautions, we are only providing HIV and STI testing for persons who have symptoms or have had a recent exposure (someone told you they had HIV or a STI).
Please call (314) 535-0413 x220 to speak with a nurse who will determine if you can schedule an appointment.
Free walk-in testing is available daily:
- Monday-Thursday, 10 am - 12 pm (arrive by 11:30am)
- Monday-Friday, Starting at 1pm - limited slots available, testing will end once all slots are filled in the afternoon
- Tuesdays & Thursdays 5 - 7pm
If you have symptoms (vaginal discharge, pain with urination, bleeding) or need STI medication (treatment), you will need to come Monday, Thursday or Friday by 1pm to see a medical provider (see Medical Services section for more info).
HIV: For all youth seeking HIV testing, a risk assessment will be completed with a discussion of strategies/goals to reduce future risks. 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 (also called pox or bad blood), gonorrhea (also called clap), 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.
