STDs

Anyone who has sex can get an STD, also called STI (sexually transmitted infection). Many people don’t know they’ve been infected because they don’t have symptoms. STDs can cause serious health problems, and increase your risk of HIV infection.

Red Door offers testing for all people ages 12 and older. We also treat many infections. Red Door's specially trained staff will talk openly with you to determine the right testing and treatment.

Chlamydia is spread during vaginal, anal and oral sex with an infected person.

In women, symptoms can include discharge from the vagina, bleeding between periods, pain or burning when peeing, the need to pee more often, and stomach pain. In men, symptoms can include watery or white drip from the penis, pain or burning when peeing, the need to pee more often, and swollen or tender testicles. 

Get tested at Red Door

Red Door will talk with you about your sexual history to see if you need a test.

If so, you’ll either pee in a cup or Red Door will take a swab sample.

If you have chlamydia, your sex partner(s) should get tested and treated.

Genital herpes is a virus spread by skin-to-skin contact including vaginal, anal and oral sex.

Many people have symptoms but others have none. Symptoms range from mild to severe, and usually include one or more blisters on or around the genitals, rectum or mouth. The blisters break and leave painful sores that may take one week or more to heal.

A person infected for the first time can also have fever, body aches or swollen glands, and may have more outbreaks in the first year. A person infected for the second time or more may have milder symptoms, and usually doesn’t have a fever. Some people get outbreaks more often than others.
