What are the STI test options in Aurora,IL?
Aurora, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago, are stretched across four counties that have different STD rates (all of them lower than Cook’s). In 2016, DuPage County had an HIV prevalence rate of 82.5 per 100K people. Those of Kane, Kendall, and Will counties were 78.7, 39.5, and 100.5. But don’t get smug yet by your relatively low rates. HIV is preventable, and those numbers can still come down.
There are surely more people out there who are infected and don’t yet know it. Every sexually active person needs to get tested regularly, even if they are not experiencing symptoms.
In 2017, the counties that make up Aurora had chlamydia rates of 272.1, 395.3, 359.1, and 397.3. The gonorrhea rates were 49.2, 90.8, 81.1, and 94.5, and the (primary and secondary) syphilis rates were 1, 3.7, 5.2, and 3.1.
Aurora has a few STD-testing clinics, and there are even more options in Chicago and other suburbs. The Open Door Health Center of Illinois on Lincoln Ave provides STI testing.
Planned Parenthood is located on New York St. They test for STIs and treat all except HIV, and the fee is on a sliding scale. The Kane County Health Department also does STD screening at their Elgin location. Check around to see if there are any free STD testing events coming up.
