STIs are infections passed from one person to another through sexual contact. You can reduce your risk of getting or passing an STI by using a condom or dental dam during sex.
STD vs. STI?
While some people may be more familiar with the term STD (sexually transmitted disease), at Women’s Health we use the term Sexually Transmitted Infection (STI) instead of disease. The word disease can imply a long-term medical condition with obvious signs or symptoms. However, many sexually transmitted infections will have no symptoms and can be cleared up with treatment.
We provide testing and treatment for the following STIs:
- HPV (including genital warts)
- Pubic lice/crabs
Our friends at Boulder County AIDS Project offer FREE rapid HIV testing to Women’s Health patients at Women’s Health. Rapid HIV testing is available at our Boulder location the first two Tuesdays of the month from 4-6pm, and at our Longmont location the third Wednesday of the month from 4-6pm. Testing is limited and is first come-first serve. Please call ahead to the clinic to see if there are available spots for testing. If all walk-in appointments are full, you can make an appointment for rapid HIV testing through BCAP’s website: http://atlas.bcap.org/hiv-testing-boulder

How to Schedule an Appointment:
To schedule an appointment for either Boulder or Longmont, please call the main clinic line: 303-442-5160.
For most appointments, Women’s Health uses Next Day Scheduling.
To schedule an appointment, call us the business day before you would like to come to the clinic—Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday at 9am or Thursday at 2pm to schedule an appointment for the following day. To schedule an appointment for Monday, please call Friday at 9am. Call us early in the day for the best availability because appointments are scheduled on a first call, first serve basis.
If you experience an extraordinary situation where you cannot access our Next Day Scheduling, please call during business hours Monday-Friday to speak with a staff member.
Same-day and Walk-in appointments are available for Emergency contraception (the “morning-after pill”) and Birth Control refills only. Although no appointment is necessary, waiting time may be longer.
For all patients under 20 years of age
Teen patients are welcome to make an appointment during any of our family planning hours. For teens who prefer TEEN ONLY hours, visit the Boulder Clinic on Saturdays from 11-3pm or the Longmont Clinic on Mondays from 2-6pm. For more information on Teen Clinic services and pricing, see the Teen Clinic website.
