What are the STI test options in Ankeny,IA?

The City of Ankeny, IA is in Polk County. Even though Ankeny is a great place to live, there is a concern over rising STD rates. STD rates in Polk County are higher than in the state of Iowa as a whole.

Chlamydia rates have been on a continual rise since 2012. Rates have gone from 465 per 100,000 people to 650 per 100,000 persons. Gonorrhea rates have shown a similar increase, rising from 593 cases in 2012 to 1,367 in 2018. These numbers are alarming and emphasize the need for the residents of Ankeny to get tested.

 It is not known what is responsible for the nearly two-fold rise in STD rates in Polk County, but officials suspect that it may be connected to the use of dating sites on the Internet.

Officials at the Polk County Health Department emphasize the need to get tested for STDs. They offer STD testing for residents 13 and older. Planned Parenthood is another option that has STD testing and treatment resources in Polk County. These resources may not test for all potential STDs, only the most common ones.

Some, but not all, public clinics may offer free STD testing to some. The amount of time it takes to receive the results at public testing sites can vary, depending on the number of cases that the lab has ahead of you. When you go to a public clinic, people will know why you are there. Even though the results are confidential, going to the clinic could be embarrassing for some.

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 Ankeny, 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 Ankeny, 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.
