Is STI Testing and Treatment for me?
If you are experiencing any symptoms of STIs including painful bumps, sores, warts, skin rash, painful urination, weight loss, abnormal genital discharge, weight loss, please make an appointment at any of our clinic locations. Some STIs show no symptoms at all. We recommend everyone gets tested for STIs in order to prevent further infection rates of sexual partners.
How does STI Testing and Treatment work?
Once we perform our tests and receive your results, we will be able to provide any treatment you might need in the form of prescriptions, information or support. Your Kind Clinic provider will outline your next steps for treatment and will recommend any additional follow-up appointments.

If you’re currently experiencing STI symptoms or know you’ve been exposed to an STI, you have two options:
1. Schedule an “HIV & STI Testing” appointment at one of our clinic locations, where our clinical staff can provide you testing and treatment at the same time.
2. Come in for Drop-in HIV/STI Testing and wait 3-5 business days for your results to come back. If they are positive, we’ll call you to schedule a follow up appointment for treatment.
Note: If you were assigned female at birth (including trans masculine-identifying patients) and are experiencing STI symptoms that include abdominal and or pelvic pain, please schedule an appointment with our clinical staff by calling us at 1-833-WE-R-KIND (1-833-937-5463).
Kind Clinic will either obtain a urine sample, blood sample or swab from the genital area to test for STIs.
Test results are uploaded into your Kind Clinic patient portal within 3-5 business days*. If your test result is reactive, a Kind Clinic representative will call you to schedule a follow-up appointment for treatment.
*Due to COVID-19 lab results may be delayed due to increased lab volume.
During our Drop-in HIV/STI Testing hours, no appointment is needed to get tested for HIV, Syphilis, Hepatitis C, Gonorrhea, and Chlamydia. Other STI tests require an “HIV & STI Testing” appointment.
Unfortunately, we do not treat for STIs during our Drop-In HIV/STI hours. If you’re experiencing symptoms related to an STI and would like to get tested and treated in the same visit, you will need to set up an “HIV & STI Testing” appointment at one of our clinic locations.
Even if your testing is not covered by your insurance, STI Testing and Treatment is offered at no cost to you with Kind Clinic.
No. If your lab results indicate you require treatment, we’ll call you to schedule a follow up appointment either at one of our clinic locations or via vitual visit.
