What are the STI test options in Aurora,CO?
Many STDs are asymptomatic – meaning they can have no outward signs of infection. Younger populations are at an increased risk for STD exposure, but every year for the past four years the risk has been rising for all.
The city and state are ranked in among the top for STD rates, according to the CDC.
According to the CDC, almost two-thirds of all new chlamydia cases present in those aged between 15 and 24 years old. Approximately 1 out of every 20 sexually active females in this age range is infected with chlamydia. These rates are definitely alarming; especially considering gonorrhea is quickly becoming resistant to antibiotic treatments, chlamydia can cause reproductive damage, and congenital syphilis can result in stillbirths.
In response, organizations like the Tri-County Health Department are doing what they can to help combat the growing STD rates – including no cost testing to those at increased risk of exposure. Through education, low cost or free testing services, and counseling and support services the hope is that better preventative measures will lead to a major reduction in the current STD epidemic trend.
Testing facilities in the city of Aurora are plentiful. The Tri-County Health Department has a testing facility on East 14th Place, the Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains can be found on South Abilene Street, and It Takes a Village offers testing on Lima Street.
