What are the STI test options in Abilene,TX?

At the end of 2017, there were 228 people living with HIV in Taylor County, Texas.

As far as HIV and AIDS diagnoses by city in Texas, Abilene is not even among the top 50. However, the county diagnosed 729 chlamydia cases that year, and Abilene health officials have acknowledged it as a problem and hope to reduce that number through sex education and condom use.

2017 also saw 343 diagnoses of gonorrhea in Taylor County and 23 syphilis cases.

Abilene has several clinics you can go to for testing, in convenient locations around the city, including some free STD testing options for those who can prove that they cannot pay. Right in the center, on Butternut St., you have Big Country AIDS Resources, which focuses on HIV and AIDS education, prevention, treatment, and support.

Also downtown, the Abilene-Taylor County Public Health District STD Clinic tests for HIV, syphilis, chlamydia, and gonorrhea. HPV vaccines are also available. Other clinics are scattered along the perimeter of the city.

Your trusted source for comprehensive and unbiased STD testing locations, statistics, and resources. Backed by board-certified physicians and aligned with CDC guidelines, we're committed to providing accurate, up-to-date information to empower your health choices.

What STD tests do I need?

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention1 (CDC) recommends screening for the most common STDs, including chlamydia, gonorrhea, hepatitis B, hepatitis C, syphilis, herpes 1, herpes 2, and HIV for both men and women. In addition, the CDC suggests women get screened for trichomoniasis.

SaferSTD recommends searching for locations that offer a 10-test panel which tests for the most common bacteria and viral STDs in the U.S. with additional premium add-ons like early HIV detection, if needed.

When should I get tested?

The CDC2 provides detailed STD testing information as to when you should get tested. In summary, you should get tested today if you are sexually active, never been tested before, have had unprotected sex in the past, or if you exhibit symptoms. 

According to the World Health Organization3, the majority of STI cases reported every day, more than one million, are asymptomatic; another reason to get tested today.

You should get tested again in 90 days to rule out STDs that have specific exposure waiting times, including HIV.

How are STD tests done?

STD testing can be a quick and simple process, depending on the type of test you choose and where you get tested. Some may require an oral or genital swab, a urine test or blood sample, or a physical exam to check your genital area for signs of an STD.

SaferSTD has identified preferred providers that require only a urine test, a blood sample, or both without a physical exam.

How fast do I get my results?

The speed at which you receive your STD testing results depends on where you get tested. Before you choose your location, find out how long testing results will take. 

At-home STD testing results are usually 3-5 business days, depending on the manufacturer of your test. You also need to take into account the amount of time it takes to receive the test or pick one up, perform the test, and ship it back, before the lab can analyze your results and report back to you. 

If you test at a public facility such as a neighborhood clinic, you may have to wait a week, if not more for the results, which could delay treatment. If you test through a private facility, they have the fastest turnaround within 1-3 business days. 

SaferSTD has researched and identified the most accredited and most reputable testing locations. Click here to find a preferred location near you.

What same-day testing locations are available in Abilene, TX?

Some STD testing clinics offer same-day walk-in options without an appointment. Below are nearby preferred locations that offer this option.

How much will STD testing cost in Abilene, TX?

The cost of STD testing depends on whether you select private, public, or at-home testing, as well as the type of test(s) you need.

Several at-home STD options and public testing locations can cost up to $250, with most on the higher end, depending on the brand and type of testing. Public testing fees also vary based on income and welfare eligibility. 

With private testing, you may save money on a low-cost comprehensive 10-test panel that tests for the most common bacterial and viral STDs in the United States. 

SaferSTD has researched and identified reputable locations that offer upfront pricing without hidden fees. Click here to find a preferred location near you.

STD Testing and Sexual Health Education in Abilene, TX

STD Testing Abilene, TX

A 2004 poll conducted in Abilene, TX showed that almost 90 percent of residents were in favor of teaching abstinence only sex education classes to high school students. The latest statistics are showing that this approach is not working and teenage pregnancies, along with reported cases of STDs are currently on the rise. In response to the rising numbers the city’s independent school district has implemented a new 10 day program.

The newly implemented sex education program is being offered to younger students, and will begin to explain the changes that happen to their bodies during puberty. Not only will the 10 day class cover self esteem, and other issues that commonly plague teens during puberty, but also the importance of being protected during sex. STD testing and the importance of regularly visiting one of the free clinics is also covered, and the class also teaches the importance of abstinence.

Since the majority of teenagers will not abstain from sexual intercourse, the hope of this program is to teach high school students the importance of being regularly tested. Herpes testing in Abilene is also covered, along with the fact that this viral infection can also appear around the mouth. HIV testing is also important for Abilene teenagers, especially since the deadly infection is on the rise among young men.

Better Sexual Health in Abilene, TX

STD Testing Abilene, TX

Downtown Abilene, Texas has been experiencing an economic boom lately, and this is beginning to show in the larger number of free STD clinics. While this west Texas city does have some issues with poverty rates, the main reason the STD rates are rising simply has to do with a lack of education.

Not only do many parents prefer not to have to deal with this sensitive issue, the state legislature also limits funding for certain extra programs. With more than half of students admitting that they are already sexually active, and the majority of them only being educated on abstinence it is easy to see why the number of reported cases is rising.

While demographics will always play an important role in an area’s STD rates, in Abilene it seems that the main problem is still an unfortunate lack of education of the part of parents and children. Without the necessary information teenagers will not learn the importance of regular testing, along with knowing how to protect themselves from contracting a sexually transmitted disease.

Better Sexual Health in Abilene, TX

While this western city is trying to improve its sexual education program, this is no reason to put off visiting one of the health clinics. It is possible to have a private  STD testing in Abilene, without having to wait in long clinic lines.

If each resident in Abilene, TX was regularly tested the city would not be facing a rising number of STD cases.
