Medical Exams for Sexual Health

If you have ever had any type of sexual activity, it’s important to receive regular preventive health care. Medical exams at the Health Center are provided at no charge to IC students.

Cervical cancer screening (PAP test) is recommended for anyone with a cervix, including females of all sexual orientations and trans men who retain a cervix. The first PAP test is recommended at age 21. The PAP Test screens for cervical cancer and human papilloma virus (HPV). In addition, the Health Center offers HPV vaccination.

An appointment can be made by calling 607-274-3177.

There may be fees for lab tests, including the Pap and all sexually transmitted disease and infection (STD/STI) tests, depending on what health insurance plan you have. There is no charge for HIV testing. To determine what is covered by your health insurance, call the toll-free number that appears on your insurance card. The Customer Service representative will be able to answer your questions related to your particular plan.
