Your college years are an exciting time of meeting new people, developing new romantic relationships, discovering new opportunities, and coming to understand your sexual identity. During this time, there may be positive and negative experiences regarding dating and intimate relationships. Our goal is to educate the UND population on how to make healthy and informed decisions pertaining to their sexual health and intimate relationships. We do this through awareness campaigns, presentations, and offering free preventative materials.
We have broken down Sexual Health topics into four categories: Sexual Health, Relationship Health, Sexual Identity, and Sexual Violence
STI (Sexually Transmitted Infections) and HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) Testing
Many people contact Student Health Services and ask for "THE STI TEST." Unfortunately, there is not one general test to cover all STIs. Some tests can be done together in the same procedure, but others require different samples and testing techniques. The following summary provides basic information about testing at the Student Health Services. It is important to consult with your health care provider to determine which tests would be most appropriate for your situation.
Kinds of Tests
Rapid Anonymous HIV Testing is performed at Student Health Services. Results are available in less than one hour. No needles are required for this test. Traditional blood work may be required in certain situations. This service includes counseling so that those being tested will understand why the test is given and what the results will tell them. Education on behavioral risk factors and prevention is also provided. Information about support services is available for those seeking additional resources. This test is strictly anonymous. No record of the patient's name is kept and test results are not recorded in the patient's medical record.
For other types of sexual infections, students should make an appointment with a medical provider at Student Health Services. If you have a sore or some unusual symptom, please let them know when you call so that they can schedule you as soon as possible. There are male and female providers, so let them know if you have a preference.
