At NewMed Immediate Care in Rolling Meadows, Illinois, we understand the importance of early detection and treatment of sexually transmitted infections (STIs). STIs can often be asymptomatic and may lead to serious health complications if left untreated. Our clinic provides confidential testing and effective treatment options to manage and resolve these infections.

Understanding Sexually Transmitted Infections

STIs are infections transmitted through sexual contact, including oral, anal, and vaginal intercourse. They can be caused by bacteria, viruses, or parasites. Common STIs include:

  • Gonorrhea
  • Chlamydia
  • Herpes
  • Human Papillomavirus (HPV), which can lead to genital warts
  • Syphilis

These infections can cause long-term health issues such as pelvic inflammatory disease and, in severe cases, can lead to the development of acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS).

Why Get Tested for STIs?

Regular STI testing is crucial for anyone who is sexually active, especially those with new or multiple partners, those who are pregnant, and anyone engaged in behaviors that increase their risk of infection. Early detection of STIs can prevent the spread of disease and allow for timely treatment that might prevent serious complications.

What to Expect During STI Testing at NewMed Immediate Care


Your visit will start with a private consultation where you can discuss your sexual health openly with our healthcare providers. This discussion helps determine which STIs we should test for based on your sexual history and potential symptoms.


Depending on the STIs being considered, we may perform swab tests, blood tests, or urinalysis. These tests are selected based on the most effective methods for detecting specific infections.

Results and Confidentiality:

Test results are handled with the utmost confidentiality. We ensure that you receive your results promptly so that appropriate treatment can begin immediately if necessary.

Treatment Options for STIs

Treatment depends on the type of STI diagnosed. Bacterial infections like gonorrhea and syphilis are typically treated with antibiotics. It is crucial to complete the entire course of treatment to fully eradicate the infection. Viral infections, such as herpes, may be managed with antiviral medications that help control symptoms and reduce the risk of transmission.

Preventing STIs

Prevention is a key component of sexual health. We provide education on safe sexual practices, including the use of condoms, dental dams, and regular screenings. For individuals with multiple partners, regular testing is advised to monitor their health status and prevent the spread of infections.
