Comprehensive STD Screening

At Women’s Health Group Chicago, we offer comprehensive STD screening services designed around your safety and confidentiality. Our dedicated team of health professionals understands the stigma that often surrounds these screenings, and strives to create a compassionate, respectful environment for all women who come into our clinic – regardless of their concerns or background. It’s important to us that you feel comfortable during every step of this process. We use advanced diagnostic tools to test for a variety of sexually transmitted infections (STIs), giving an accurate result promptly.

Rapid Testing For Common STDs

Time is essential when testing for common sexually transmitted diseases. At Womens Health Group Chicago, we are committed to providing timely and accurate results through rapid testing procedures tailored to each patient’s needs. Our skilled medical staff conduct efficient tests on-site for most standard types of STIs including chlamydia, gonorrhea, syphilis among others while maintaining strict confidentiality protocols at all times.

Treatment and Management Of STDs

Upon receiving a positive diagnosis from any form of STD testing, immediate treatment is crucial in curbing complications as well as preventing transmission. Here at Womens Health Group Chicago, the wellbeing and peace of mind for our patients remain paramount; hence effective treatment forms part-and-parcel of our professional service delivery charter. Our experienced medical practitioners not only administer relevant medication regimens but also provide personal guidance towards long-term management strategies.

Partner Notification and Testing

Understanding if an infection has been spread is vital for both individual safety as well as community health protection measures against sexually-transmitted diseases.” Partner notification isn’t merely aimed at identifying potential sources; it occupies significant importance in stopping further dispersion via informed awareness.Our qualified staff will guide you through notifying partners about potential exposure discreetly without breaching privacy standards.


Prevention is always preferable to treatment when it comes to the fight against sexually transmitted diseases. Vaccination forms an effective and proactive layer of protection, particularly against HPV and Hepatitis B. At Womens Health Group Chicago, we provide these necessary vaccines as part of our commitment towards safeguarding female health and wellness ahead of any potential infection.

The adage prevention is better than cure holds true in managing sexually transmitted infections too. Our mission at Women’s Health Group Chicago extends beyond clinical service offerings towards comprehensive preventive education as well. We believe that informed decisions constitute the foundation for a life of optimal health.Our highly-trained counsellors are on hand to patiently answer questions, address concerns while imparting valuable insights regarding safe sexual practices, thereby empowering you with useful knowledge on STD prevention measures.

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.
