Woman getting information about STI/STDs

Is it possible that I have an STI/STD?

Do you know if you are at risk for having an STI/STD? If you are sexually active, or perhaps you have been with the same partner for a while now, we strongly recommend that you get tested. Why? Because according to the Center of Disease Control (CDC), one in every five persons at any given time have a Sexually Transmitted Disease/Infection (STD/I). Almost 50% of those who have an STI are between 15-24 years old. Our medical staff can talk with you to help you determine if you are at risk.

What type of STI/STD is the most common?

According to the World Health Organization, chlamydia and gonorrhea are some of the more common STIs and they are both treatable.

What are some common symptoms of chlamydia and gonorrhea?

Because STIs/STDs don’t always cause symptoms, they may go unnoticed until complications occur. The symptoms can be similar for both chlamydia and gonorrhea:

  • burning when you pee
  • abnormal, discolored discharge from the vagina
  • abnormal discharge from the rectum
  • pain in the rectum
  • bleeding from the rectum

With gonorrhea, you may also notice rectal symptoms like itching, soreness, and pain when you defecate.

If a woman has a more severe case of chlamydia, and the infection moves upward to the uterus and fallopian tubes, this can cause pelvic inflammatory disease (PID). PID symptoms can cause:

  • fever
  • feeling sick
  • vaginal bleeding, even if you do not have a period
  • intense pain in your pelvic area

Seek emergency medical help if you think you may have PID.

 

 

When should I get tested and treated?

The earlier an STI/STD is detected, the better it is for your health. The longer the infection goes untreated, the more problems can ensue.

 

For testing, you can come to Mid Cities Women’s Clinic. Our testing is done by licensed medical staff. You do not need to be pregnant to get tested. In addition to this, you will be embraced by a warm, compassionate and non-judgmental staff who want to help you be the best version of yourself! And ALL of your information is entirely confidential.

 

How much does it cost to get tested?

At Mid Cities Women’s Clinic, all our STI/STD testing is free. You do not have to pay a co-pay or have insurance – it is 100% free. Please don’t wait another moment; why not pick up the phone and call us at 817-835-6381 or click here to request your appointment online.

Woman considering her pregnancy choices

Do I Have a Choice

Did your pregnancy test come back positive? Are you struggling to wrap your head around the result? Maybe the timing is off, or you don’t want the guy who got you pregnant to be the father. In a world where we very easily make over 35,000 choices a day, how do you decide what to do with an unexpected pregnancy?

Our lives are the result of the choices we make every day. When it comes to making a decision about your pregnancy, you may be feeling conflicted, scared, or even angry. Maybe you’re struggling with decision fatigue – it’s a real thing! A range of emotions is normal – you’re in between a rock and a hard place.

Where can you go to find the help you need to make your best decision? Here are some helpful tips to keep in mind when facing an unexpected pregnancy.

1. You don’t have to make this decision by yourself.

The ultimate decision will be up to you, but why not talk through what you’re feeling with someone who has been in your shoes?

I asked myself how could this happen to me? The medical services and counseling that MCWC offered helped me through a very dark time of anger, confusion & pain. – Mid Cities Patient

2. Your choice will become a part of your life story.

We all have things in our life story that we are not proud of, but you have the opportunity to create a story that you can look back with confidence knowing you made the best decision for you!

3. Every choice you make in life matters.

From big to little, every choice matters. At this moment, you may feel hopeless, but this isn’t the end. This is a tough season, but you will make it through. You are strong and brave, but you don’t have to face this decision alone. At Mid Cities Women’s Clinic, we offer discreet, non-judgmental, compassionate care. Together we can discuss all your options. You can ask questions, and we will provide you with medically accurate information. Having all the facts helps you make the best decision for you.

In addition to our counseling, we also offer pregnancy tests and an ultrasound (upon qualification), so you know if your pregnancy is viable. In order to figure out a plan, a pregnancy test and an ultrasound is your next best step. Why wait? We can help you make the best choice for you. You can request your appointment here or give us a call at 817-577-4387.
