Treatment For Sexually Transmitted Diseases

 Commonly called STDs, sexually transmitted diseases are infections spread from person to person through intimate genital contact (that includes genital contact with the mouth or anus). STDs are an embarrassing condition for anyone, but the risk of developing a serious complication should far outweigh any embarrassment in seeking medical help.


  • Bumps, rashes or sores near the vagina, penis, anus or mouth
  • Painful urination, loose stools, discharge from the penis or vagina
  • Weight loss, night sweats, aches associated with fever
  • Painful intercourse or itching near the penis or vagina

Who is at risk?

Any sexually active person is at risk.


Depending on the type of STD, there may be a prescription medication or shot that will relieve your symptoms. Gonorrhea, chlamydia and syphilis are common and are all treatable. Genital herpes and HIV are permanent conditions with treatment available to improve your quality of life. Talk to your doctor about the options in your particular case.

Emergency Warning Signs: When should I see a doctor?

STDs in pregnant women can cause early labor. If symptoms persist in a pregnant woman, medical attention is necessary. Anyone with a suspected STD that has had contact with someone not known to them or someone in a high risk category for HIV should seek medical advice and treatment.

Treatment and testing for Sexually Transmitted Diseases is available now at Swift Urgent Care.

I was in and out with my toddler. Friendly and knowledgeable staff. Much better than going to the emergency room

Oh my goodness! The staff here were amazing and accommodated us for an unexpected walk up test we needed. Such great service at the end of a long day. Thank you!

Our primary doctor's office closed early today so we decided to go to this urgent care. The staff was very professional and personal with us. My son asked if we could change our provider to this location (which means he was comfortable here) but I was informed by the staff member that they have a provider in Morrow. We will be using their doctor soon as our primary provider. The doctor was great with explaining the issue and electronically sending the prescription to our pharmacy of choice. I will be back if I ever need an urgent care facility.
