In addition to fee-based STD testing locations, there are also locations that offer free STD testing. However, many free testing sites may have long wait times and offer a limited number of STD tests that aren’t comprehensive.
Free sites may also have additional fees that aren’t upfront and may not provide a medical consultation after you receive your results. The ability to book appointments in advance and flexible office hours may also be a challenge at many free STD testing locations.
