Regardless of your gender identity, if you have a penis, testes, or a prostate, we encourage you treat them to routine wellness exams and problem focused care when needed.
Before You Visit:
Schedule your appointment. The scheduler will ask you some specific questions to help us match you with the best clinician for your appointment and to ensure that we have sufficient time to address your most pressing needs.
Write down any questions or concerns you may have and bring them to your appointment.
We encourage you to read this Patient Guide to Sensitive Health Exams to help you understand standard of care protocols during sensitive health exams (breast, genital, or rectal).
Insurance typically covers these appointments only once a year. Please check with your insurance for more information about what they will cover and when you are next due.
Sexually Transmitted Infections Testing

HIV Prevention Medication
PrEP is short for pre-exposure prophylaxis. PrEP is taking prescription medicine daily before coming into contact with HIV. This, in combination with safer sex practices, can help lower the chance of getting HIV infection. PrEP is only for HIV-negative adults at higher risk of getting HIV. Find more information about PrEP at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website. Wondering if PrEP is right for you? Schedule an appointment with one of our medical professionals at MyUHC or call (301) 314-8184.
PEP (post-exposure prophylaxis) means taking medicine to prevent HIV after a possible exposure. PEP must be started within 72 hours of possible exposure to HIV. Contact the UHC right away (within 72 hours) if you think you've been recently exposed to HIV:
- during sex (for example, if the condom broke),
- through sharing needles, syringes, or other equipment to inject drugs
- if you've been sexually assaulted
The sooner you start PEP, the better. During a visit with a UHC provider, you may be prescribed PEP, and you'll need to take it daily for 28 days. For more information about PEP, please call the UHC at 301.314.8184.
