Thank you for reminding me reminding me to write about this “TO Friend”! I received a text from him stating that he was considering returning to his wife and asked where to get a non-invasive STD testing done. Back in January 2012, I have posted on Facebook that I had my first non-invasive STD testing at Hassle Free Clinic(Sexual and Reproductive Health Clinic).
To book your appointment is different – based on separate hours for men and women and trans-friendly as well. I booked mine based on the fact that I was due for my check up and make sure that I am still in the clear zone. Testing should be done based on many different levels:
- having multiple partners
- condom broke with an unknown partner
- changing partners
- unsure about your current partners status
- sexually active
It’s far less stressful knowing that you are negative(as in, not STD/HIV positive) for yourself and for your current partner(s). No one wants to be lied to especially on sexual health status. It may not happen to you but it could be your friend, neighbor, colleague, family member and even your best friend. (Yes, it happen to one of my dear friends. I cried. I miss you, wherever you are. Miss our friendship JC-if you ever get the chance to read this!)
I could list a lot of other resourceful clinics. You may send me the name of clinic and contact information and I could post via email (email@example.com) or add a comment below. Otherwise, please talk to your family physician for any medical concerns. I’m no doctor, I’m part of the caring community! Do your part, get Checked!
