Sex-Positive Sexual Health Services

HealthQ offers a sex-positive and open-minded approach to your sexuality and its expression. We care about safe and consensual sex and pleasure. That’s where we come in. The rest is up to you, of course.

At HealthQ, sexual health includes testing and treatment for sexually transmitted and other infections that affect your sexual health, such as urinary tract and yeast infections, HIV testing and referral for treatment, information about HIV prevention including condoms and pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP or the HIV prevention pill), all FDA-approved methods of birth control, including no-scalpel vasectomy, and emergency contraception, and cancer screening and prevention. This includes Pap tests (cervical and anal) and colposcopy to detect pre-cancer and cancer, and vaccination against human papillomavirus (HPV) to prevent cancer. We provide annual preventative health exams and can help you address other issues, such as sexual function and pleasure, infertility, and miscarriage management.

Our doors and minds are open to you whether you know what you need or simply want more information on how you can keep yourself sexually healthy.

STI Testing and Treatment

HIV TESTING

We offer rapid HIV testing. A rapid HIV test can detect HIV 6 to 8 weeks after exposure to HIV. This test involves a finger prick and results are ready in 10 minutes. We offer another test that is able to detect HIV within 2 weeks of exposure to HIV. This involves taking a small blood sample, which is sent to an outside lab. The results take about a week. Both tests are more than 99% accurate and your results are confidential.

PREP (PRE-EXPOSURE PROPHYLAXIS)

We offer PrEP (pre-exposure prophylaxis), a once-daily prescription medicine for people at risk of HIV. It helps lower the chances of getting HIV through sex or injection drug use. You must be HIV-negative before and while taking PrEP. Talk to us about your risk for HIV and whether PrEP may be a good option for you.
