STI/STD Testing & Treatment

Couple and doctor testing

If you had unprotected sex or you had “protected sex” but are in a new sexual relationship or have had multiple partners, you are at risk for an unexpected pregnancy or of contracting a sexually transmitted infection. So what do you do now? We can help!


Hope Pregnancy Center provides free limited STI testing in Willmar, Minnesota. Our screening and treatment services for chlamydia and gonorrhea are provided to men and women. No cost and no insurance needed.


Chlamydia is the most frequently reported bacterial sexually transmitted infection in the United States. Any sexually active person can be infected with chlamydia. The greater the number of sex partners, the greater the risk of infection. Because the cervix of teenage girls and young women is not fully matured, they are at particularly high risk for infection.


Even when a woman has symptoms, they can be mistaken for a bladder or vaginal infection. Untreated gonorrhea can cause serious and permanent health problems in both men and women.

Schedule a free and confidential appointment for STI testing in Willmar and to learn more about reducing your risks.


Sexually transmitted diseases are diseases passed from person to person during sexual activity (e.g. vaginal, oral and anal sex, outercourse or mutual masturbation). STDs can be transmitted through bodily fluids and, in some cases, skin-to-skin contact.

It’s important to remember that not everyone infected with an STD will experience signs or symptoms. But STDs can still cause severe damage, and can be passed to your partner(s) without your knowledge. You don’t need to be experiencing symptoms to be contagious. You can spread the disease at any time.

STIs and STDs… What’s the difference?

The terms STI (sexually transmitted infection) and STD (sexually transmitted disease) are often used interchangeably. But do you know the difference?

  • The term “STI” (sexually transmitted infection) is used to describe the presence of an infection in the body, which may or may not be accompanied by symptoms.
  • The term “STD” (sexually transmitted diseases) on the other hand, describes an infection that has caused damage in a person’s body—though, like sexually transmitted infections, an STD may or may not be accompanied by symptoms.

STI is the broader of the two terms. All STDs are STIs, though not all STIs become STDs.

The Center for Disease Control can provide you with accurate and up-to-date information.
