If you’ve been told by a sexual partner that you might have an STI or you’re starting to show symptoms, it’s important to seek medical attention. At Good MDs, we understand that this can be a scary proposition if you don’t have insurance. Between paying for the doctor’s visit and the associated medication, you could be in for a major financial burden. This is why you can come to us to get an online physician prescription for an STI. If you’ve never had a visit with an online physician, we can help to put your mind at ease by providing you with all the necessary information you need with this short guide.
Why should I see an online physician?
Most of us have been to a doctor’s office and had to sit in the waiting room for 15 to 20 to 30 minutes even. Then once you’re finally called in, you wait another 20 minutes or so to be seen by the doctor for a total of 10 minutes, if you’re lucky. All this is in addition to your drive to and from the clinic. It can feel like it takes all day.
When you see an online physician, this entire process is streamlined. Because you’re seeing the doctor online, you can be anywhere you have a stable internet connection, which means there’s no additional drive time. What’s more, you don’t have to sit in the waiting room and read an outdated magazine. You can stay at home, read your own magazine while you wait a few minutes for the doctor, then have a truly private conversation with a physician about a potential STI.
What do I need to do for a prescription?
Most STIs require a prescription for them to clear up. Whether you’re dealing with chlamydia, gonorrhea, or even herpes, you’ll need medication to help get rid of it. To get the prescription that you need, you don’t need to do anything more than have a conversation with the prescriber. Let them know what you’re dealing with and if you’ve been informed that you were intimate with someone who has an STI. The most important part of it all is to be honest. Your doctor cannot prescribe you the correct medication if you’re not fully honest in your conversation.
Can it be sent to my pharmacy?
Any prescription for an STI can be sent directly to your pharmacy. Simply let your prescriber know which pharmacy you typically get your medications from and we’ll send an electronic copy of the prescription to them for dispensing. Depending on how busy your pharmacy is, they can get it started before you get there.
Even if you’re concerned about your infection after typical business hours, you can submit a consultation form and chat with one of our providers 24 hours a day. While your pharmacy might not be open, we can still send the prescription over after hours so it can be ready in the morning.
