What are the STI test options in Akron,OH?

Unprotected sex, drug use, and lack of education about risk and prevention all contribute to the current STD epidemic. Summit County reported 720 new HIV cases in 2016, making it one of the highest rates of transmission across counties in Ohio State.

Programs like the Ohio HIV Medicaid Spenddown Payment Program (OHMSDP) exist to help those living with HIV gain access to and pay for health insurance. Public health officials in the area are seeking to reduce transmission and improve health through efforts to empower patients with education, understanding, and treatment.

Routine testing – every 3 to 6 months – is now being promoted as a normal part a regular health care routine.

Billboard campaigns work to spread understanding about the danger of STDs, like syphilis and gonorrhea, and the importance of regular testing. These billboards use explicit and attention-grabbing imagery to educate the general public on the seriousness of staying safe, getting tested, plus free STD testing.

The city of Akron has many options: from Planned Parenthood of Greater Ohio located on West Exchange Street, to CANAPI on West Market Street, and the Summit County Public Health on West Market Street.

Reviewed by Our Medical Team
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 Akron, OH?

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 Akron, OH?

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.

Sexual Health Education

STD Testing and Sexual Health Education in Akron, OH

Currently the city follows the state and federally recommended abstinence only based curriculum which leaves out information regarding safe sex and STD testing. While the abstinence preferred program does help lower teen pregnancy rates in some areas, it does nothing to slow the spread of sexually transmitted infections. When this information is not taught in the classroom students and many parents do not realize that they are already at risk for contracting a STD.

Not all transmitted diseases are spread solely through penetration during intercourse, which means it is possible to contract one even if you are not active sexually. Adding to the risk is the fact that not all STDs display immediate symptoms making it possible to infect someone unknowingly.

Regular Herpes testing in Akron and  HIV testing in Akron is vital for your continued good health.

Sexually Transmitted Diseases and Demographics in Akron, OH

Conservative values are making it difficult for health officials to implement sexual education programs in the classroom, along with ensuring funding for community clinics and centers. The strong conservative beliefs also carry over into the religious community, which has resulted in teens and young adults having very little guidance when they are dealing with puberty and their sexuality. This is having an effect on the STD rates, as more teens begin to experiment sexually, without using protection.

The lack of funding and available clinics is also impacting lower income neighborhoods in the city. Already experiencing difficulties in being able to afford adequate health care, it is now even harder for these residents to find treatment. Stereotypes that surround many of the STDs can also prevent people to admit that they might need to get tested, especially younger men.

Teenage girls and young women often find it difficult to say “no”, which is contributing to the high birth rate among high school students.
