Sexual Health Services
We provide services geared towards maintaining your overall and sexual health. This includes:
Anal Pap Smears For Human Papillomavirus (HPV) Testing
More than half of people who are sexually active get HPV at some time in their lives. They often don’t know it because they don’t have symptoms or other health problems. Our immune system (the system in our bodies that helps fight infection and disease) can often clear it out, but certain types of HPV are hard to fight. There are more than 100 types of HPV. Please tell a provider if you are interested.
HPV is the main cause of anal cancer.In recent years the number of people getting anal cancer, especially men who have sex with men, has been on the rise. People with HIV often have a harder time fighting HPV, so it is important that men, as well as women with HIV, get tested for HPV infection.
An anal pap test may be helpful in finding changes in cells so that anal cancer could be prevented or caught early.
Assistance With Sexually Transmitted Infections
Please note that we offer Truvada for anyone who is sexually active and at risk of getting HIV. TRUVADA for PrEP® (pre-exposure prophylaxis) is a prescription medicine that can help reduce the risk of getting HIV-1 through sex, when taken every day and used together with safer sex practices.
You must be HIV-negative before you start and while taking TRUVADA for PrEP. Do not take TRUVADA for PrEP if you already have HIV-1 infection or if you do not know your HIV-1 status.
