To ensure that you are getting fully tested, not just the minimum. Here is what is considered a full panel:
STD/STI ~ Type of Test/Location
Chlamydia (swabs for Vagina, Throat & Rectum; urine for penis)
Gonorrhea (swabs for Vagina, Throat & Rectum; urine for penis)
Trichomoniasis (swabs for Vagina; Urine for penis)
HPV (Women’s Pap)
Herpes (Active sore or blood)
We recommend Charles Drew Health Clinic for those in Omaha and Lincoln. They provide walk-in testing or to schedule a testing appointment call (402) 451-3553 and ask for Abigail Lechner APRN or her nurse Mallory James. They are both very sex positive and support the lifestyle through proper testing. https://charlesdrew.com/reproductive-health/
There is a daily medication called PrEP (means Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis), and it’s the use of anti-HIV medications to keep HIV negative people from becoming infected. PrEP is approved by the FDA and has been shown to be safe and effective at preventing HIV infection. More information on http://www.whatisprep.org.
Cost: Gilead (the company that makes two of the drugs currently approved by the FDA drugs for PrEP) has a Medication Assistance Program for PrEP. You can apply for this program to see if you can get PrEP at no cost, based on your income. For more information call (877) 505-6986.
