What are the STI test options in Athens,GA?

The South experiences higher rates of STDs and Athens is no exception. Left untreated STDs can result in not just physical discomfort but also long-term health consequences. As rates rise, regular screenings for sexually active persons becomes increasingly more important.

Ranked in the top five states for STD rates of gonorrhea, chlamydia, and syphilis, residents should make sure to protect their sexual health with regular screenings.

Recent statistics show alarming rates of STD cases: 62,776 chlamydia cases, 20,553 gonorrhea cases, and 1,350 syphilis cases. Over half of all new STD cases occur in young adults.

Public and private STD Testing centers are located throughout the Clarke County area. Many organizations have labs around the city, including the Athens Neighborhood Health Center.

If you want a little more privacy by leaving your immediate vicinity then you can find nearby locations outside the city limits. Within a 20 mile radius of Athens you’ll find the Georgia Department of Public Health, located on South Elm Street in Commerce, and the Northeast Health District, located on Union Point Road in Lexington.

If privacy isn’t a concern there are centers that have free STD testing, just be prepared to wait with others.

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 Athens, GA?

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 Athens, GA?

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 Athens, GA

Even though STD and teen pregnancy rates are rising the state still does not require its public school districts to offer comprehensive sex education classes to students at any grade level. While the state does follow federal law and mandates that all public school districts must provide students with information on HIV prevention, the classes rarely provide teens with the skills and knowledge they need to avoid STDs and unplanned pregnancies. This alone is one of the main contributing factors to the city’s high rate of sexually transmitted infections.

Since students are not receiving the information they need to adequately protect themselves from STDs they are potentially putting everyone’s health at risk, including their own. Sexually transmitted diseases can be spread through a variety of methods, and this can make it easier for these viruses to be passed onto others. Not all STDs display immediate signs and symptoms, and this makes it possible for others to spread a transmittable disease without even realizing it.

While students are encouraged to practice abstinence, and this will effectively prevent pregnancies, it does little to stop the spread of sexually transmitted diseases. Teaching students about the importance of regular Herpes testing in Athens is the best way to stop this contagious virus from infecting others. This also applies to regular HIV testing in Athens, and this simple procedure could potentially save your life.

Sexually Transmitted Diseases and Demographics in Athens, GA

STD rates are rising in the city, and this is partially due to the large number of college students in the area. While this is one of the contributing factors, statistics released by the CDC effectively show this is certainly not the only reason the number of sexually transmitted diseases reported each year is continuing to rise.

One of the main factors in the rising STD rates continues to be the lack of comprehensive sex education classes in the public school system. Studies and the climbing teen pregnancy rate indicate that students are sexually active, and that abstinence based education classes are not always effective. Simply providing teens with the knowledge they need to protect themselves would go a long ways towards lowering teen pregnancy and STD rates.

The city is also recovering from a financial crisis that forced it to cut funding to many of its health care programs. When this is combined with Medicaid no longer covering STD testing many residents simply cannot afford the fees. These are only a few of the factors that are contributing to the area’s high STD rates, and stress the importance of being tested for all sexually transmitted diseases on a regular basis.
