What does STI Testing in men involve?

Many male students come to the Men’s Clinic at Student Health  for general screening for Sexually-transmitted Infections (STI). The physician will ask questions (some explicit) about the presence of symptoms, known STI contacts, current sexual activity, prior testing and HIV risk factors. A brief genitourinary examination will take place looking for visual signs of STIs and to carry out testicular examination for abnormal masses. You will be asked for a urine sample (do not use the bathroom before coming to your screening appointment) to screen for Chlamydia and Gonorrhea. The physician will review other STIs (herpes, syphilis, HPV) with you in order to determine whether additional screening tests are needed. Confidential HIV testing is offered. None of the testing procedures are painful. Treatment for STIs is always available for men with symptoms or known disease contacts.
