Public Health Services - Possible Disruption -

If a strike occurs on October 18, 2017, some Public Health services will need to be adjusted. Communicable Disease will offer no clinical services during a strike. Please see "Where else you can get tested" below if you are in need of STD services.

Please see the county home page for more information about county services affected by the strike.
The Lane County Public Health Sexually Transmitted Disease (STD) Program provides evaluation, counseling, and treatment for people and their sexual partners. Our services are non-judgmental and confidential. No one is turned away due to inability to pay. If you are hearing-impaired or speak a language other than English, we can arrange for an interpreter.
Who should be tested for STDs?

STD testing is recommending for anyone engaging in vaginal, oral, and/or anal sex, particularly when having sex with multiple partners. Some STDs such as HIV and Hepatitis B & C can also be spread by sharing injection drug gear.

In Oregon, teens can consent to HIV and STD testing and treatment without a parent's permission.

Just Checking Clinic

Lane County Public Health is now offering a “Just Checking” STD clinic. If you have no symptoms or recent exposures and just want a routine test, you might qualify for a “just checking” STD 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 STD or have been recently exposed to an STD, please contact our office 541-682-4041 to schedule an appointment.

Conditions we check for

We can provide screening for the following conditions:
  • Gonorrhea
  • Chlamydia
  • Syphilis
  • Vaginal infections like yeast or Bacterial Vaginosis (BV)
  • Trichomoniasis (Trich)
  • HIV (blood test only)
  • HPV (Genital warts. Visual check only, no treatment offered.)
  • Herpes (Visual check only)

What to expect at your visit

What to expect at your visit depends on the type of STD 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 them 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.
