What are the STI test options in Alexandria,LA?

Health officials in central Louisiana are worried about the state’s STD rates. In 2016, Louisiana ranked third in the nation for HIV rates and first for primary and secondary syphilis, a disease that was under control in the US a short decade ago.

It made a comeback because of decreased condom use, especially after the AIDS scare of the ‘80s abated. Health officials are using awareness parades as tools to get people into clinics for testing and to convince sexually active people of the importance of using protection.

In 2016, Rapides Parish had an HIV prevalence rate of 461.1 per 100K people, under the Louisiana rate of 517.8. The same year, Rapides Parish’s chlamydia rate was 791.6 per 100K people, well above Louisiana’s rate of 679.3. The parish’s gonorrhea rate was 294.4. The primary and secondary syphilis rate was 18.2, above Louisiana’s rate of 16.1.

You can be tested for STDs at Rapides Primary Health Care Center on Willow Glen River Rd. At least one nonprofit in the area provides free STD testing, but there may be a wait. The Alexandria Women’s Center on Masonic Dr offers STI testing and also offers the HPV vaccine.

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 Alexandria, LA?

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 Alexandria, LA?

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.

Sexual Health Education

STD Testing and Sexual Health Education in Alexandria, LA

Since the early 1990’s middle and high schools in Alexandria introduced the abstinence only as the only sure means of preventing STDS and unwanted pregnancies. This was to counter the alarming increase of HIV infection in the city. With the current situation of STD infection in the city, the health community has held onto the abstinence only along with other sex education programs to mostly help the sexually active age between the age of 14-29. Being the hard hit age by almost all types of STDs, interventions to educate them on sexuality is one of the best ways to reduce STD infection rates.

With the increased spread of STDs and most notably Chlamydia and Gonorrhea in the city, legislators are now seriously debating on legalizing comprehensive sexual education in middle and high schools. Some of the legislators are referring the lack of comprehensive education in middle and high schools as child abuse. The call for sex education in schools is demanding and looks set in the near future. Some of the schools have gradually been teaching comprehensive sex education and it has proved to be effective, with parents allowed to opt out their children from these classes.

Louisiana Youth for Truth backed by non governmental organisations and women organisations like Institute of women and Ethics have fighting tirelessly for the introduction of comprehensive sexual education. This is taking the fight against STDs to another level as most locals have now rallied behind the introduction of comprehensive sexual education. The residents of the city have enlightened on the need for sexual education from body developments, physical changes, refusal attributes, use of condoms, and the general sex education. This has

Outreach programs have also played a big role in sensitizing the locals on sex education. This is done through University students and non governmental organisations. Through exhibitions on condom usage and forms of contraception use, most locals are now aware of means of protecting themselves from STDs.

Sexually Transmitted Diseases and Demographics in Alexandria, LA

  • Blacks 27,332
  • White 18,288
  • Asian 873
  • Hispanic/Latino  849
  • Others 1232

The city has a poverty rate of 19.2%. With such  a poverty rate and a substantial number of the residents living below the nation’s average poverty level, STD infection rates have been steadily scaling. Many families cannot cater for regular health check up due to finance challenges. This has made most of the locals living in income stringent conditions to forgo regular health check ups for basic commodities.

Alexandria city has a variety of religions. With religions like evangelical protestant, catholic, black protestant, among others, there are varied beliefs too pertaining sexuality. Some of these beliefs necessitate sex practices and hence increase the vulnerability of STD infection to the locals.

Unemployment has challenged the fight against STDs within the city of Alexandria. With a staggering 7% unemployment rate, many of the affected are the prime youth who have just left colleges. Coupled with poverty and social crimes like rapes which was reported to have 18 cases per 100, 000 people according to a 2014 research. These factors among others have influenced the growth of STD infection in the city. However, outreach programs have been consistently offering sexual education to the locals in attempt to curb STD spread.
