STI testing in Spain and/or Portugal.

Dearest travelers, expats, study abroaders, locals, and everyone else! I'm temporarily in Spain and would like to get tested for STIs [not an emergency, just want to make sure everything's as I think it is, as I will probably have a new partner soon] but am not sure where to go here. I also have no health insurance at all at the moment, much less anything European [I'm US American].

If anyone here has gotten tested in Spain and could give me any information about where I should go [hospital? GP?], how much it might cost, what STIs are included, how long the results might take, tips on asking about it if the nurse/doctor doesn't speak much English [my Spanish is rudimentary at best], or anything else, I'd really appreciate it.

I'm in Antequera right now and will be in Málaga for a day soon, if anyone has specific recommendations in those places.

I'm also trying to move to Portugal, so if anyone has any insight on the testing process there, please share!

Thank you all very much!
