We provide a thorough and confidential selected sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) screening that can detect even asymptomatic infections. Early detection is critical for effective treatment and avoiding further complications, therefore controlling the spread of these diseases.

Rapid Testing For Common STDs

Waiting days or weeks for test results can be an agonizing experience; hence we offer rapid testing for common STD’s. This ensures prompt diagnosis which leads to early commencement of treatment if found positive. Our forefront technology allows us to speed up this important part of your healthcare journey thus reducing anxiety associated with waiting periods.

Once diagnosed, our priority shifts towards ensuring successful treatment and management of the condition at Womens Health Group Chicago. Our expert doctors develop personalized intervention strategies aimed at treating identified STDs effectively while minimizing potential side effects. Each woman’s case is different, so we ensure our treatments are tailored specifically to individual needs promoting optimal outcomes.

Partner Notification And Testing

We believe that education, awareness, and preventative measures against spreading STDs are crucial elements in managing these conditions. Hence, we take partner testing seriously; if you’re diagnosed with an infection then it’s a strong possibility that your partner could also have been exposed or vice versa . To aid prevent transmission between partners or help treat both parties as quickly as possible our clinic recommends taking necessary precautions which would include notifying any potentially affected partners about exposure risk while advising their need to undergo same tests as well.


Prevention is always better than cure – especially when dealing with conditions like some forms of STLs such as HPV from messing one’s overall wellness among others! Hence why vaccinations play integral role during our preventive healthcare strategies. We offer vaccines against certain common and preventable STI’s in comfortable, women-centric environment.

Preventive Education and Counseling

At Womens Health Group Chicago, we firmly believe that empowering you with knowledge is just as important as providing top-notch medical services. To this end, we have preventive education and counseling sessions where clients are educated about STDs – their transmission, consequence if left untreated, spotting symptoms etc., Our counselors provide support to help navigate treatment choices while also emphasizing on best practices for maintaining sexual health in future.

I've been coming to Dr. Awad and Dr. Mike for over 30 years. Never had a bad experience and actually look forward to chatting with them both. I was a little sad and nervous when I was told Dr. Mike was unavailable today (delivering babies!) so I saw Dr. Lexi. I should have known Dr. Mike would only hire the best to work with him. Dr. Lexi was kind and knowledgeable. She asked all the right questions and was very gentle. Great staff as well.
