What are the STI test options in Ames,IA?

Located in central Iowa, about 30 miles north of Des Moines, Ames is well-known for being home to Iowa State University (ISU). County reports coming from the Ames area include alarming high and still rising rates of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). Health officials in Story County hope all sexually active adults practice safer sex and participate in regular health screenings. 

There is some good news, in 2015, 58 out of every 100,000 people in Story County were reportedly living with HIV—a lower rate than that of every other county surrounding Ames.

Story County also reported a lower than ever rate of primary and secondary syphilis cases for 2014. The Health Department thinks this is thanks to better sex education and increased early testing and treatments. For chlamydia, the rate in Story County was 82 per 100,000 people. With gonorrhea’s rate being 31 for every 100K that same year. 

To get tested in the Ames area, consider these affordable locations. There is a Planned Parenthood over on Chamberlain Street. They offer STI testing for the following: chlamydia, bacterial vaginosis (BV), gonorrhea, genital warts, herpes, HIV (testing only), syphilis, and trichomoniasis. You can even book your confidential appointment online. Another option available for STD testing is Primary Health Care – Ames Medical on Lincoln Way. You can call Obria Medical Clinics to see if you qualify for STI screening at no cost. Also, if you’re a student at ISU, keep an eye on your campus calendar (especially during STD awareness month) for free STD testing.

To find the best services and location for you, use our search tools below to compare location features across Ames clinics with our easy-to-read chart. 

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 Ames, IA?

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 Ames, IA?

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 Ames, IA

Iowa is one of the few states in the nation that has detailed requirements and laws regarding health education and specifically sexual health education in the public school classroom. Health education is required starting in kindergarten and continues all the way through the end of high school. Early health education is required to deal with infectious and communicable diseases including the AIDS and HIV viruses.

However, the bulk of STD education in schools is required starting in middle school and extends into high school. These lessons need to focus on the characteristics of STDs and means of prevention. Iowa also requires that HPV (human papillomavirus) is one of the STDs discussed in health class. Abstinence is emphasized as a prevention method, but other contraceptive options and STD testing and treatment is also discussed.

Parents do have some control over what their children are taught in health class though. They can be opted out if parents deem the content inappropriate or undesirable for their children. There are other resources that citizens can seek out. These include public and private STD testing centers as well as school nurses and counselors as well as other medical offices.

Sexually Transmitted Diseases and Demographics in Ames, IA

Much of the public health information available is highly contingent on the demographics of any given area. The same is true of STD rates and statistics. The population of Ames was 63,266 in 2014 and of the total population, 82.5 percent of those people were Caucasian or White. Just over 9 percent identified as Asian and just over 3 percent identified as African American or Black. Additionally, 47.6 percent of the population was female while 52.4 percent were male.

In the state of Iowa, around 63 percent of the HIV cases that occur are diagnosed in the White or Caucasian population and of the remaining cases, 22 percent occur among the African American or Black community. Chlamydia, on the other hand, occurs at the highest rate in the city among women. In fact, Chlamydia diagnoses were 2.5 times more common in women than in men. The two age groups most likely to have a Chlamydia diagnosis are 20 to 24 year olds and 15 to 19 year olds.

Based on these numbers, it is easy to see some of the ways in which the demographics of the city can influence the rates of STDs in the area. Compared to statewide statistics, it is below average in all STD diagnoses and based on the city’s population, this fits with the basic demographic information.

With all of this information in mind, you can now see how important it is to get an STD test as soon as possible. It is better to know your STD status than continue on with an undiagnosed STD unknowingly and without proper care and treatment. Now is the time to do something good for your health and well-being and call an STD Clinic to schedule your confidential tests today. Remember to request the standard STD tests for Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, and Syphilis as well as the basic blood test of HIV. Other screenings and tests are also available if you are concerned that you have been exposed to a different sexually transmitted disease. Once you know your STD status, you can get treatment and make sure that you are always putting your health first.
