If your test is positive, you should notify your partner(s) to be tested and treated if you are diagnosed with an STI. It is important to abstain from sex until your partner has been treated and for you to follow all instructions given at your appointment for treatment. Most STIs can be treated with medication provided by our clinic. Referrals to other healthcare resources will be made for cases requiring further evaluation.
