Most people think they would know if they had a sexually transmitted infection (STI) . . . wrong! The truth is many of STIs have no signs or symptoms in the majority of people infected. Or they have mild signs that can be easily overlooked. This is why the term “disease” (as in STD) is starting to be replaced by infection (or STI). The only way to know if you have an STI is to get tested.
If you’ve had unprotected sex, have a new partner (or more than one partner), or for any reason are worried you have been exposed to a STI, talk to a healthcare provider at the University Health Center to discuss which STI tests you should consider.
Steps for Getting Tested at the University Health Center
- Call the University Health Center at (402) 472-5000 to talk to a nurse about STI testing.
- Make an appointment to get tested.
- When you arrive at the University Health Center, check in at the Front Desk. You will then proceed to the Laboratory on the 3rd floor of the University Health Center.
- Your test results will be sent to the University Health Center up to 3 days after testing. A University Health Center nurse will call you to discuss your results.
