STD Testing & Counseling
The Berrien County Sexually Transmitted Disease Clinic provides confidential testing and treatment and is offered by appointment. Our clinic nurses are experienced and trained to provide confidential counseling, testing and treatment for Gonorrhea, Chlamydia, Syphilis, Trichomoniasis, and Bacterial Vaginitis.
A nurse will see you, and ask questions about your health and what your testing needs are. It is especially important to know about any body rashes or lesions/bumps in your genital area. Services are delivered in a non-judgmental manner, so please tell the nurse what you know so you get the best care. It is important to understand your risks for acquiring a STD, and the nurse can help you identify steps you can take that may prevent future infections. Rapid HIV testing is available and offered at every STD clinic visit.
At your visit, a nurse will assess your immunization history and recommend vaccines that will benefit you and your health, such as vaccines for Hepatitis B, HPV, and Tdap.
It is important to identify sexual partners that are also at risk and get them into the clinic for testing and treatment as well. STDs can be passed back and forth between sexual partner(s), and can even harm the health of an unborn baby or cause fertility issues.
It is recommended for persons who have tested positive for either Gonorrhea or Chlamydia, to get retested three months after treatment.
