Sexually Transmitted Infections

FREE & CONFIDENTIAL TESTING

If you have recently had unprotected sex, have known signs or symptoms, or feel like

you would like to know your sexual health status, then the best thing you can do for

yourself and your partner is to be tested! Luckily, the Montgomery County Health

Department can help! We provide FREE screenings for HIV, Hepatitis C, Chlamydia,

and Gonorrhea! In addition to all screenings being FREE, they are also 100%

confidential and anonymous. FREE treatment is available for those that test positive for

either Chlamydia or Gonorrhea. Also, follow up screenings or referrals are provided if

needed.

SCREENING PROCEDURES

The screening process is simple! For females being screened for Chlamydia or

Gonorrhea, a vaginal swab is self-administered. For males being screened for

Chlamydia or Gonorrhea, a urine sample is collected. Those who receive anal sex are

encouraged to collect a rectal swab as Gonorrhea is site specific; therefore, it may be

negative is one area but positive in another. A small blood sample is collected for

anyone being screened for HIV or Hepatitis C.

SCREENING HISTORY

Montgomery County Health Department has been screening for Chlamydia and

Gonorrhea since September, 2017. We have also been screening for HIV and Hepatitis

C in partnership with ASPIRE since May, 2017. Remember that all screenings are

completely FREE, confidential, and anonymous.

If you think you have a Sexually Transmitted Infection (STI), the Montgomery County

Health Department has partnered with the Indiana State Department of Health to

and Gonorrhea are provided for those 14 and older. Screenings for HIV are provided to

those 13 and older, and Hepatitis C screenings are provided to those 18 and older.
