Hi, I finally got into the doctor for an STD test. He said I should have a urine test. The only thing is, is that I urinated about 15 minutes before I gave my sample (I couldn't hold it, and I forgot about the 1 hour rule, and no one reminded me), I was wondering how badly do you think it will affect the test?View Thread
Hi, I finally made an appointment at a Doctors office (internal medicine) but I forgot to ask what std's they test for. Do they test for most common std's? like gonorrhea, chlamydia, syphilis, etc?View Thread
Alright that sounds about right. I have been to my local health department (I went there at 7:00am in the morning) but when I got there everybody who was waiting looked really creepy and when I went to the service counter there was nobody there, someone saw me but totally ignored me. After standing there for about 5 minutes I left. That is why I would like to avoid local health departments if possible. I think they stink.
There is no planned parenthood around for miles, even if there was I don't think I would feel comfortable going in.
I ran out of time to do any sort of calling today, and I feel like I have been wasting a lot of your time, so I think my only option is to just call a bunch of random doctors offices, is a "Family Doctor" who I need to call? Because when I google search "doctor <my town's name>" I get a few doctors offices listed, should I just call like a "family medical center"?
Also, I have seen someone of the other doctors offices around town, they look pretty crappy, how safe is just a random doctor? I would hate to get an STD from the testing lol.View Thread
