5 Health Clinics for Discreet STD Tests

5 Health Clinics for Discreet STD Tests

According to the Department of Health, if you want to undergo testing for sexually transmitted diseases, your local health department and community clinic are good places to start. But, of course, you can also choose a private facility or one in a different municipality. Where can you go for discreet STD testing? If you’re looking for an STD clinic, here’s a list to consider:

1. My Health Clinic

If you’re looking for a discreet STD clinic that doesn’t require an appointment, visit My Health Clinic’s website and purchase their Red Package. For 2,375 PHP, the package includes:

  • Complete Blood Count (CBC)
  • HIV Test
  • Hepatitis B Test (HBSAG)
  • RPR (Rapid Plasma Reagin), which tests for syphilis
  • Urinalysis
  • Consultation with a primary care physician

After purchasing their package, head over to one of their branches, present the payment proof and a valid ID, and then that’s it. Certainly discreet — no lengthy discussion about your visit and concern.

2. Love Yourself

If you want to get tested for STD (including HIV), consider Love Yourself. While not an STD clinic, their Self-Care and Platinum services are the epitome of discreet.

The Self-Care package gives you fast, confidential, and accurate HIV testing from the comfort of your home. They’ll deliver the kit to your house and you can self-test with the help of their counselling video.

The Platinum service, on the other hand, is a monthly subscription. Each month, members will receive the location of the rented space where the one-on-one consultation will be held. The package also tests for HIV, Hepatitis B, and syphilis.

Love Yourself also has community centers which you can visit for free HIV testing and counselling services. For the list of their centers, head over here.

3. Caduceus Medica Infectious Disease Clinic

A discreet STD clinic with doctors, nurses, and staff experienced in the management, diagnosis, and counseling patients with sexually transmitted infections. This clinic also considers “privacy, respect, and professionalism” of prime importance.

The clinic doesn’t just provide STD testing, they also offer check up, treatment, and vaccination.

You can find their clinic at San Miguel Ave, Ortigas Center, Pasig, Metro Manila.

4. Klinika Bernardo

Klinika Bernardo is the first ever social hygiene clinic (SHC) that caters mainly to males who have sex with males and transgenders.

Funded by the Quezon City Health Department, Klinika Bernardo does not only offer HIV testing, they also provide prevention and treatment services.

Klinika Bernardo is located at Ermin Garcia Ave, Quezon City, Metro Manila.

5. Social Hygiene Clinics Near You

One might think that being discreet comes at a high cost, but not when you get in touch with government-facilitated social hygiene clinics.

Social hygiene clinics not only offer free HIV testing and STD consultations, but they also provide free condoms, lubricants, and even ARVs (antiretrovirals). Since they specialize in sexual wellness, you can expect a discreet service.

If you’re looking for an STD clinic, consider checking for a social hygiene clinic near you.

Key Takeaways


Testing for sexually transmitted diseases is crucial because it gives you leverage: early treatment that reduces the risk of complications or illness progression.
If you suspect that you have STD, don’t wait. Visit a doctor as soon as you can. The same is true if you’ve had unprotected sex.
Since there’s no one test to check for all STDs, the doctor might order several tests for you, especially if you don’t have symptoms. They can draw blood samples, check your urine, or culture fluid or tissue from your penis, vagina, or open sore.
Don’t wait and see before you visit an STD clinic. Facilities know how important privacy and confidentiality are, so they would be discreet about your concern, testing, result, and treatment.
