STI and HIV Testing Services
Monkeypox, or MPX, is a disease that causes a rash and spreads through close contact in some communities. If you are experiencing symptoms you think may be related to MPX, please call your healthcare provider for an evaluation, or call 408-792-3720 to make an appointment at our STI Clinic. To learn more about MPX, visit sccphd.org/mpx.
If you are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms or have been told to isolate or quarantine, please refrain from utilizing in person services until you are symptom free for 24 hours and have completed your isolation and quarantine period.
The Crane Center offers a variety of low cost and free sexual health services:
A sexually transmitted infection (STI) is described as any condition passed through sexual contact, also known as a sexually transmitted disease (STD).
Need a reason to get tested for sexually transmitted infections (STIs)?
Here are three:
- The most common STI symptom is no symptom at all, so the only way to know your status is to get tested.
- Many STIs 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 STIs surprisingly more than you would expect.
The good news is that getting tested for STIs is one of the most important things you could do for your health, and our process is fast and easy at the Crane Center.
