How are STDs treated at your urgent care center in Havertown?
Antibiotics are employed for sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) that are the result of bacteria or a parasite. If caught early, they can be effectively treated with these medications. Viral infections, however, can not be treated with antibiotics and must be treated with antiviral medications. Viral STDs and STIs are challenging to handle, and they are not always cured. Antiviral drugs are used to manage the infection and help prevent more severe symptoms from developing. Women who are pregnant and have risk factors for an STD or STI should come to our urgent care center for immediate testing. If a sexually transmitted disease is confirmed, we can help protect a fetus from possible infection by immediately beginning treatment.

Our walk-in medical facility has antiviral drugs and antibiotics available to treat sexually transmitted diseases or sexually transmitted infections. Our location in Havertown can order additional medications if needed.
Can I receive confidential STD treatment at AFC Urgent Care Havertown?
Our staff at our urgent care center can provide you with complete confidentiality during your visit for your STD Treatment. To protect the health of the Havertown Community, you should attempt to contact any past sexual partners within the last year as well as any current partners. It may be difficult to determine who exactly is responsible for the initial infection, but it is more important for these people to be tested and, if needed, begin treatment. The sooner an STD treatment can begin, the more effective it will be in curing them or managing their condition.
If you have difficulties contacting past sexual partners, check with the local health department. They may be able to assist you in the notification process. If an STD is undiagnosed in the community, it puts everyone at risk.
