STI Testing & Treatment

Alton Village Medical Centre offers screening annually to sexually active patients under 30 years of age. This is in line with the recommendation from The Canadian Task Force on Preventive Health Care. Chlamydia and gonorrhea are common sexually transmitted infections that are treatable with antibiotics. Screening is done to find and treat infections in people who aren’t showing symptoms, which may reduce complications like pelvic inflammatory disease. These infections are often without symptoms. Talk to your doctor about screening more than once per year if you think you are at increased risk of infection (e.g., you have had a sexually transmitted infection, you have had unprotected sex, sex with multiple partners, or another reason).
