The county health department recommends regular testing
Indianapolis has several STD testing centers, including Planned Parenthood locations on Meridian Street, Washington Street, and Hanna Avenue.
Many private clinics are available as well, including down Arsenal Avenue and Otis Avenue. These locations are conveniently located next to public transportation stops. You also won’t have to worry about parking if you choose to drive yourself.
Appointments are appreciated, though most private clinics will accept walk-ins as long as the staff is not already handling a full schedule. It is usually best to call first, this way you can get in and out as quickly as possible. Calling ahead also gives you the opportunity to ask about free STD testing. Not everyone will qualify but it never hurts to ask when it comes to your sexual health.
