What are the STI test options in Apex, NC?
Infectious diseases such as sexually transmitted infections (STIs) remain a matter of health concern in Apex and the greater Wake County. Syphilis, chlamydia, gonorrhea, and HIV are some of the most prevalent infections.
In a 2018 Public Health Report on Communicable Diseases, syphilis cases hit a record-high rate in 2015, with a total of 24.4 cases per 100,000 population. In 2017, however, the rate was 22.6, with 237 documented incidences.
According to the survey, chlamydia and gonorrhea had a much higher rate. In 2017, new cases of chlamydia had reached 5,897, while gonorrhea cases were 3,152. That represents a morbidity rate of 562.3 and 194.1 respectively.
The Wake County HIV/STD Community Program bases its prevention efforts on the foundation of Teach, Test, and Treat. Thus, the initiative hopes to conduct HIV/STD public awareness, testing and counseling, and case management to the high-risk population to ensure county residents can access quality STD care.
The Wake County Human Services Clinic situated on Sunny Brook Road, the Women’s Center on Cox Ave, and the iChoose Pregnancy Support Services along Village Park Drive are some of the clinics you may visit for STDs tests.
Alternatively, you may go to Raleigh, along Boylan Ave, where you may get STD services at the Planned Parenthood Health Center. The LGBT Center of Raleigh along E Hargett Street is another option.
Other clinics within Apex may provide free STD testing. However, you may not be billed upfront. Additionally, doctors may not be available on site in case you might need consultation services.
