STD and HIV Testing Services

Need a reason to get tested for sexually transmitted diseases (STDs)? ​

Here are three: 

  • The most common STD symptom is no symptom at all, so the only way to know your status is to get tested.
  • Many STDs like gonorrhea, chlamydia, and syphilis are treatable and able to be cured, but if left untreated, these infections can cause serious health problems.
  • Young people in Santa Clara County and nationwide are  affected by STDs surprisingly more than you would expect.

The good news is that getting tested for STDs is one of the most important things you could do for your health, and our process is fast and easy at the Crane Center.
