There are many ways to get tested for STIs. You can test for STIs with your regular doctor, at a walk-in clinic, or at an STI clinic. To find an STI clinic near you check out our Clinic Finder.
STIs are caused by both bacteria and viruses, and it’s important to get tested for everything.
Routine testing for men includes:
• HIV – blood test
• Syphilis – blood test
• Gonorrhea – Urine test
• Chlamydia – Urine test
For men who have sex with men we also recommend:
• Gonorrhea – Throat Swab
• Chlamydia – Throat swab
• Gonorrhea – Rectal swab
• Chlamydia – Rectal swab
