At Women’s Health Group Chicago, we pride ourselves in providing quality and confidential comprehensive STD screening to women living in Oak Forest. Our comprehensive approach involves a series of tests that screen for various sexually transmitted diseases such as Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, Syphilis, HPV among others depending on your lifestyle risk factors. We understand the importance of privacy and confidentiality during these screenings hence our professional staff ensure discretion whenever you visit us.
The time factor is crucial when dealing with health issues and more so if it concerns potentially life-altering conditions like STDs. Our clinic in Oak Forest offers Rapid testing for common STDs where results can be obtained within a few minutes or hours. While rapid HIV test results are usually available within 20-30 minutes, other rapid tests may take up to two hours maximum but deliver accurate results that enable immediate care initiation if necessary.
Diagnosing an STI is only part of the solution; actual healing begins when appropriate treatment commences. At Women’s Health Group Chicago, we have experienced medical practitioners who can prescribe effective medications based on tested and validated protocols for all types of diagnosed STDs. Besides the application of therapy techniques, we extend our services by guiding patients through proper management procedures post-treatment to prevent future occurrences or complications.
We strongly encourage Partner Notification and Testing after any positive diagnosis since it helps stop the cycle of re-infection between partners as well as spread among different people unknowingly engaging with infected individuals. To support this endeavor efficiently without causing emotional upheaval or breach trust levels between couples/buddies/friends – Women’s Health Group Chicago employs tactful methods while delivering relevant information about infections & suggesting partner testing possibilities.
As part of our preventive approach, Women’s Health Group Chicago offers critical vaccinations for various STDs that have a preventive vaccine like HPV. Our philosophy is to emphasize prevention as much as treatment because some STIs can have significant long-term effects on women’s health and fertility. We continuously promote vaccination programs around Oak Forest to help steer the community towards healthier lives.
Knowledge empowers individuals with insightful decision-making capabilities regarding their wellness. The process starts right from our clinic in Oak Forest where we provide comprehensive education about sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) coupled up with empathetic counseling sessions to change attitudes, dispel misconceptions, facilitate informed choices and promoting safer practices among members of the community.
