Testing 4 U

Free & Confidential Sexual Health Testing

Important Notice:

Due to financial considerations, the Board of Directors of Hope Pregnancy Centers of Brazos Valley (the parent organization of T4U) has decided to terminate the operation of the STD Clinic.

In nearly two years of operation, 946 men and women received quality healthcare and compassionate counseling. However, the board found that the cost per patient for  STD medical care delivered free of charge is unsustainable without sufficient support from the community.

We would recommend that individuals seek services at the Brazos County Health Department, Healthpoint Community Clinics or from local physicians who are part of Healthy Texas Women.

Free

All testing is free of charge. We believe leading a healthy lifestyle is more important than worrying about how to pay for testing. Currently, we are testing for chlamydia, gonorrhea, syphilis, and HIV. Tests require both blood and urine specimens. We’ll stick you in the arm–without sticking you with the bill.  If you need treatment, there are a variety of options, most of which are free or at a low cost (some exclusions apply).

Confidential

Testing 4 U abides by the same federal and state laws your own doctor abides by regarding your private health information. Plus, we do not need to collect any insurance information (remember the part about our services being free?). This means no insurance company will mail anything to your home address about you being tested. We know your privacy is important to you, and it is to us, as well.

 

Our Philosophy

t4u - "thanks for understanding" ; a quick way to show your appreciation when someone cuts you some slack. Getting tested may feel a little awkward, but the consequences of an undiagnosed sexually transmitted infection will be far more uncomfortable. Rest assured, when you come to T4U, you will be entering a judgment-free zone. We want the best for you, and are here to talk and answer questions. Just know we are here for you, whenever you need us. Guaranteed, or your money back (oh wait... testing is free!).

Percent of carriers with no symptoms

Why get tested?

Over 80% of people infected with chlamydia will show no symptoms of infection. That means no burning urination. No weird pus. No nasty discharge. Sound okay? Think again–without symptoms, the only way to know if you have an infection is to get tested. And if a sexually transmitted infection goes untreated, most can result in greater health risks later in life–infertility, cervical cancer in women, and prostate damage in men (just to name a few). Plus, if you don’t get treated, you can pass on your silent friend to all your sexual partners. So take responsibility and take control: get the facts. Get tested. Schedule your free and confidential appointment today.

 

So what am I getting into here?

Standard appointments last about an hour and involve filling out some paperwork, collecting blood and urine samples, answering questions during a health history interview, some education, and meeting with a healthcare professional. Any information we collect is strictly used to serve you during the appointment and will not be shared with anyone you do not authorize us to share it with. After we have collected your information you will have the opportunity to ask questions to trained personnel about a variety of sexual health topics. Ask what ever you want: we won’t blush.

Our on-site volunteer physicians welcome discussions on any specific concerns you have.   They, along with the medical staff, will collect blood and urine samples from you. If you are experiencing any symptoms or if the physicians feel it is necessary; with your permission a brief physical exam will be performed to assist them in their diagnosis. If needed, the doctors can prescribe an appropriate course of treatment that day.

Before leaving you will make an appointment to get your test results, which are  typically returned within 7 days.  At this appointment, if you have tested positive, your results will be discussed, as well as a treatment plan, if appropriate.  Treatment is provided through prescriptions.  Most medications prescribed can be bought for about $20 at the pharmacy of your choice.  If  the medications are too expensive a referral can be made to the Brazos County Health Department for treatment.  For long-term chronic disease, referrals will be made to assist you in finding appropriate care.

It is our intent to have a physician available during normal T4U hours.   There may be some circumstances when a physician is not available.  If that is the case, a physical will be scheduled at the next convenient time available.

Finally, the questions asked during the sexual health history are not appropriate for young children.  Therefore, no one under the age of 14 will be allowed beyond the lobby unless he or she is there for an exam.  Please do  not leave children unattended in the lobby.
