Are you concerned that you might have a sexually transmitted disease (STD)? If so, you’re probably anxious to get tested. If you’re not able to obtain same-day STD testing from your regular physician, you can turn to Erlanger ExpressCare. We’ve been in business since 2019, and we’re pleased to offer urgent care STD testing to patients in Chattanooga, Tennessee, and the surrounding area.

Common STD Symptoms

Symptoms will vary depending on the exact type of STD that’s present. With that being said, some of the most common STD symptoms include:

  • Pain while urinating or engaging in sexual intercourse
  • Genital itching or irritation
  • Pain in the abdomen or pelvis
  • Discharge from the penis or vagina
  • A rash in the genital area
  • Bleeding between periods (for women)

If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms, it’s important to get an STD check as soon as possible, since failing to treat certain STDs can lead to infertility, cancer, organ damage, and other issues and also increase your risk of acquiring another STD. A trained medical provider at an STD clinic will be able to accurately diagnose what’s causing your symptoms and recommend the treatment approach that’s right for you.
