Sexually Transmitted Disease Diagnosis And Treatment
Many students seek out routine STI screening, even when they are not having symptoms, just to be sure they don't have an STI. This is especially important, since many infections do not cause symptoms, especially in women. If you are sexually active and experiencing symptoms (unusual discharge, sores, bumps, blisters, bleeding between periods or after sex, burning and pain with urination, pelvic pain) call for an appointment for evaluation and treatment.
We offer tests to screen for the following STD's:
- Hepatitis B & C
- Herpes titer or culture
Cost for each test varies and can be submitted to insurance. Copays can be paid at the time of your visit or charged to your student account.
Student Health Services provides confidential HIV testing. The test is available to any Minnesota State Mankato student. It is important to understand that it is required that both the request for the test and the results of the test will be recorded in the student's medical record. If a transfer of medical records to another medical facility, insurance company, or employer is requested, this information will be included. This may cause concern on the part of future insurers or employers.
Two appointments are necessary for HIV testing, one for the test and one to discuss the results. Students having HIV testing done at Student Health Services can expect their test results in approximately 1 week.
