Get Tested. Live Healthy.

STI Testing & Education

The stigma surrounding sexually-transmitted infections (STIs) prevents many patients from taking the first step and getting themselves testing. But if you’re sexually active, getting tested isn’t optional -- if an STI is detected early as a result of your test, it can make all the difference, and even save your life.

Knowledge is the first step to a healthy you, so don’t let stigma get in your way. You can access free testing in a welcoming environment without judgement at Allies -- your trust is important to us, and your experience with our team will always be compassionate, friendly, comprehensive, and judgment-free.

Allies for Health + Wellbeing is committed to removing any obstacles you face to getting tested, and we make checking your results as easy as possible. If you’re ready to get tested, schedule an appointment with us; if you’re waiting for your results, check your Patient Portal or give us a call at (412) 345-7456.

STI, Hep C & HIV Testing in Pittsburgh, PA

When you come in for testing at Allies for Health + Wellbeing, our Health Advocate will engage you in a conversation about your personal risk factors and which test(s) make the most sense for you.

We offer the following types of STI tests:

  • HIV: We offer the Chembio rapid HIV test, which provides results in approximately 20 minutes. A supportive Allies Health Advocate will talk with you about your questions and concerns while you wait.
  • Hepatitis C: Like the rapid test for HIV, you will have your results back in 20 minutes. If you need to be treated, the Allies Health Advocate can walk you down the hall to our Medical Clinic or connect you with other providers.
  • STIs: Allies screens for a number of sexually transmitted infections (STIs), including:
    • Syphilis rapid test
    • Chlamydia test, urine testing, oral and rectal swabs
    • Gonorrhea urine test, oral and rectal swabs

If you test positive for any of these infections, or if you are clearly showing symptoms, an Allies Health Advocate can schedule an appointment in our clinic or refer you to other treatment providers.

Frequently Asked Questions 

How could I have contracted Hepatitis C?

Hepatitis C is a blood-borne virus. People with HIV also are at greater risk of having Hep C - that should be included as well. Most people infected with hepatitis C don’t know they are infected.

What is the best way to prevent Hepatitis C?

The most effective way to prevent hepatitis C is by avoiding behaviors that can spread the disease, especially high-risk sex and injecting drugs. However, there are ways to protect yourself during high-risk encounters and intravenous drug use, including using protection during sex, using clean needles during drug use, and making sure to never share needles with someone else.
