What are the STI test options in Amherst,NY?

In 2016, Erie County had an HIV prevalence rate of 289.6 per 100K people. This is well below New York’s average rate of 759.7, but higher than many of the surrounding counties. The same year, Erie County had a chlamydia rate of 563.7 per 100K people, which was just above the New York rate of 552.8. The county’s gonorrhea and (primary and secondary) syphilis rates were 203.1 and 6.5.

Health officials are worried because many of the infections were diagnosed in teens.

Teens were born after the AIDS crisis had largely passed, and they didn’t see all the deaths in the ‘80s, so they have less of a fear of unprotected sex than older generations. Also, many teens don’t realize STIs are also spread through oral sex. Health officials stress that sexually active people should use protection every time and be tested often.

Western New York Immediate Care on Niagara Falls Blvd does STD testing, as does Well Now Urgent Care on Transit Rd. Womens Wellness Associates, also on Transit Rd, performs confidential STI testing. There are other options in the area, and even more in Buffalo, and you may be able to find free STD testing there.

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 Amherst, NY?

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 Amherst, NY?

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.

Sexually Transmitted Diseases and Demographics in Amherst, NY

CDC analysts make assumptions which are based on education and fact finding. It is strongly believed that the STD infection rates would show a sharp increase if everyone in high risk categories would get tested. Part of the problem with the alarming spread is that the people who need it the most are either unaware of their peril, or lack the resources to get testing and treatment. People from financially disadvantaged backgrounds are at the highest risk because of fewer resources and a lack of education about sexual health. There is a tendency for them to be unaware of prevention methods and the resources that are at hand to help them.

STD Testing and Sexual Health Education in Amherst, NY

Reaching at risk populations with solid information and referrals to available help is the challenge currently at hand. Some things that are being done include mandatory sex ed courses in the public schools. Students learn about the potential consequences of unprotected sex including unwanted pregnancy and STD infection along with sign, symptoms and the resources that they can use if they do suspect an STD. They know where they can get a Herpes test or HIV testing. This practice has been ongoing for several years and the rates for teenagers has not significantly dropped, indicating that new strategies need to be implemented with those already in place.

All pregnant women are routinely screened for STDs when they go in for their prenatal care. This is a national standard to help prevent the incidences of babies being still-born or born with disabilities because the parent was infected and not treated. This strategy has helped to reduce the number of infections that are passed on from parent to child, but has not eradicated them totally.

The stats show that ethnicity, age, financial status and gender have some bearing on risk. Populations with the highest infection rates across the board are Blacks, Native Americans/Alaskan Indians and Hispanics. These trends have become more pronounced through the past decade of tracking and analysis as an upward rising trend. Women are diagnosed with Chlamydia, which is the most predominantly seen time at two to three times the frequency as men. Men have higher rates of Gonorrhea and Syphilis infection that women do and men who have male to male sex are at the greatest risk for Gonorrhea, Syphilis, HIV and Chlamydia.
