The Women’s Health Department does offer STD screening & counseling as well as evaluations for Yeast vaginitis, Bacterial Vaginosis, Herpes, Genital Warts, and other dermatological problems. The HPV Vaccine series is also now available at the SHS. Testing that can be obtained at the department includes:
- Gonorrhea/Chlamydia testing
- Syphilis Blood work
- Herpes Viral Culture when medically indicated
- Thin Prep Pap Smears with HPV testing as medically indicated
- HIV counseling & testing referrals
Ideally, STD testing after a possible exposure should be done at least one week later, and not during a woman’s period. Please call 831-2226 for an appointment or online.
If a woman believes she has a yeast infection, over-the-counter antifungal medication is available at the Student Health Dispensary without a prescription. If you have never been diagnosed with a yeast infection before, we do still encourage a patient to be examined first for correct diagnosis. It is helpful for us when evaluating a patient for vaginal symptoms if the patient has not used any anti-fungal vaginal medication for at least 24 hours. To schedule an appointment, call 831-8035.
