SETAC, (Solidaridad Ed Thomas AC), a non-profit LGBT+ health service provider in Puerto Vallarta, has expanded it’s clinical analysis laboratory to specialize in detecting potential sexual health issues at a lower cost for the benefit of the LGBT+ community and the population in general.

In a press release from SETAC, Dr. Miguel Buenrostro Guevara, medical director of SETAC, said the main service provided is the detection of up to eleven sexually transmitted infections, with a single sampling procedure for the convenience of the patient and the particularity that it has medical and psychological accompaniment.

“This service is unique in Puerto Vallarta, because with a single sampling procedure, the patient will know, through a PCR test, whether or not he/she suffers from up to eleven sexually transmitted infections, such as: herpes, gonorrhea, chlamydia, mycoplasma, trichomoniasis, ureaplasma, treponema, hemophilus, among others that complement the hiv, syphilis and hepatitis blood tests, and also without leaving people adrift, since they are given treatment and psychological accompaniment”, he explained.

The doctor added that this laboratory also processes CD4 cell count studies to know the state of the immune system of people living with HIV and thus better monitor their treatment.
