If you are one of our clients who has had an appointment with us for testing and have a positive STI test result for chlamydia or gonorrhea, we will arrange for you to get the antibiotic treatment using curbside pickup.

It could mean that treatment failed or that you were re-infected. You might need another round of antibiotics, possibly with a different kind. After treatment, any sexual activity should be avoided for 7 days to avoid re-infection. Sometimes partners pass infections back and forth if they aren’t both treated at the same time, even if they are using condoms.

It depends! The skin on the genitals can look a little bumpy because of the hair follicles. If you shave or wax your pubic hair, you may have ingrown hairs which would look like pimples. Some sexually transmitted infections may cause bumps and sores. Molluscum contagiosum is a bumpy skin infection that can also be transmitted sexually. It’s a good idea to get a doctor or nurse practitioner to have a look, just in case.
