Who should be tested for STIs?

Testing for Sexually Transmitted Infections is recommended for any who is sexually active – this includes oral, vaginal and anal sex. Some infections such as HIV and Hepatitis B & C can also be spread by sharing injection drug gear, so testing is recommended for injection drug users, too.

• Everyone between the ages of 13 – 64 should be tested for HIV at least once.*

• Sexually active women under 25 years, as well as older women with new or multiple sex partners, or partners with an STI, should be screened for chlamydia, gonorrhea, syphilis and HIV at least annually – more frequently with multiple or anonymous partners.

• All pregnant women should be tested for STIs to ensure there are not risks to the baby.

• All sexually active gay, bisexual and other men who have sex with men should be screened at least annually for chlamydia, gonorrhea, syphilis and HIV; men who have sex with multiple anonymous partners should be screened more often; every 3-6 months is recommended.

• Everyone who has a sexual encounter without using a condom and all people sharing injection drug equipment should be tested for HIV at least once a year and more frequently based on exposure.


*Teens in Oregon can consent to HIV and STI testing and treatment without a parent’s permission.

Just Checking Clinic

Lane County Public Health is now offering a Just Checking STI clinic. If you have no symptoms or recent exposures and just want a routine test, you might qualify for a Just Checking STI visit. The cost of the visit is $25. The visits are on a walk-in, first come/first serve basis, no appointments needed. Just Checking visits are available Tuesdays, 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Be prepared to pay $25 on the day of your visit; however, no one will be turned away for the inability to pay.

The visit will last about 30 minutes. You will be tested for chlamydia, gonorrhea, syphilis, and HIV. Results are typically available 3-5 business days following the visit.

If you are currently experiencing symptoms of an STI or have been recently exposed to an STI, please contact our office 541-682-4041 to schedule an appointment.

Conditions we check for

We can provide screening for the following conditions, depending on sexual history:
  • Gonorrhea
  • Chlamydia
  • Syphilis
  • HIV (blood test only)    

What to expect at your visit

What to expect at your visit depends on the type of STI services you need or want, and whether or not you have any symptoms that day.

A visit usually includes:

• Conversation (interview)

• Lab tests (such as blood, urine and/or vaginal, anal or throat swabs)

• A brief exam if you have symptoms or concerns


​Gonorrhea and chlamydia may not show up on a test for 14 days after a possible exposure. HIV and syphilis may not show up for 3 months, but can show up as early as 2 weeks.

Getting your test results

Results are available in-person during clinic hours, or by phone Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. HIV test results are given by appointment or by phone at (541) 682-4041.

If you would like a paper copy of your results, you must show government-issued ID to pick it up at the clinic. You can sign a Release of Information (ROI) on the day of your visit to have a copy of the results mailed to you.
