Marshall County Health Department STD & HIV Testing
Sexually transmitted infections (STI’s or STD’s) can affect people of all ages, backgrounds and walks of life. Most can be cured but some like HIV, which at this time has no cure, can only be kept in check. If you think you may be at risk get tested and treated as soon as possible. STI’s may not always produce symptoms. Untreated infections can be transmitted to partners and fetuses, lead to infertility and even death. Using safe sex practices including condoms, can greatly prevent the spread of STI’s.
The health department can test and treat for chlamydia, syphilis and gonorrhea and refer to other providers for HIV treatment. Rapid HIV testing is now available in the clinic and the results are available in 20 minutes.
