STD Testing in Fort Lauderdale

STD Testing in Fort Lauderdale


Sexually Transmitted Disease (STD) rates are surging across the country and have hit an all-time high. It is very important to get tested. If you’re looking for a clinic for STD testing in Fort Lauderdale, call the compassionate and caring team at All Female Health Care.


The numbers are alarming. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, rates of syphilis, gonorrhea, and chlamydia have climbed for the fourth straight year. Last year, nearly 2.3 million cases of STDs were diagnosed – the highest number ever reported; this year, even higher. Officials say one of the reasons behind the increase is that fewer people are using condoms, which are the only form of contraception that protects you from STDs.

It’s crucial to get STD tested – the sooner the better if you suspect you’ve been infected. Here’s what can happen, if left untreated:

Symptoms: abnormal vaginal discharge that may have an odor, pain when having sex, itching or burning in or around the vagina, pain when urinating. (Nearly 75% of infections in women are without symptoms.)

Symptoms: Small sores on the genitals or around the mouth; rash on palms of hands and soles of feet.

Symptoms: increased vaginal discharge, painful urination, painful intercourse, vaginal bleeding between periods; in many cases, there are no symptoms; often mistaken for a bladder infection.

If you suspect you may have contracted an STD, call All Female Health Care in Fort Lauderdale at (954) 742-3536 and make an appointment to get tested – the sooner, the better.
