Introduction

What are the STI test options in Boston,MA?

Fortunately, Boston reports low rates of STD cases. In order to maintain a trend below the national average sexually active adults should undergo routine testing and follow safe sex practices.

Boston sits in Suffolk County, which is the fourth most populated county in the state of Massachusetts. STD statistics throughout Suffolk County show just why caring for your health is so important.

In 2015 163 cases of HIV were reported, which is a rate of 24 per 100,000 people. The year 2016 saw 681 cases of gonorrhea were reported, for a rate of 87.5 per 100,000. And also in 2016 the reported cases of chlamydia reached 2,334 – or 300 per 100,000 people.

However, although Boston rates of STD cases are below the national average they are still on the rise.

Outreach programs and initiatives have been spreading to educate people on the importance of barrier method protections and frank discussions about sex between partners.

There are many testing site options in the city of Boston. BAGLY has a location on Beacon Street and Massachusetts General Hospital on Fruit Street offers a variety of testing options. From Bay Cove Human Services on Canal Street to North End Waterfront Health on Hanover Street.

Free STD testing is also available for those that qualify and the Boston Public Health Commission can provide you with all the details. Sliding scale fees are another option, simply request information when you contact them.

Additional STD Test Statistics in Boston, MA

Recent statistics are showing that Boston is experiencing a steady increase in STD rates, and this trend has been ongoing for the past twenty years. While recent reports show that Syphilis is decreasing slightly between 2011 and 2012, there is still a growing problem with the number of new cases of Chlamydia and Gonorrhea occurring each year.

In a four year period, between 2008 and 2012 the number of new Chlamydia cases rose by almost 100 per 100,000 residents, and Gonorrhea also increased in the same time frame. While the number of Syphilis diagnoses does seem to be decreasing, it should still be mentioned that it does affect more men than women. Recently released statistics also show that an estimated 63 percent of first and secondary cases of Syphilis occurred in men who regularly engaged in intercourse with other men.

This, when combined with the percentage of homosexual men with HIV/AIDS only shows that it is always important to get tested regularly for any of the infectious sexual diseases.

The statistics released by state and city health officials show that everyone is at risk of developing an STD and some of the other statistics include these sobering numbers;

  • Over 50 percent of the diagnosed cases of Chlamydia between 2011 and 2012 were in women under the age of 24.
  • Men and women ages 20 to 24 are at a higher risk of contracting Chlamydia and Gonorrhea, with teens coming in at a close second.
  • The majority of first and secondary cases of Syphilis were diagnosed in men over the age of 40.
  • Hispanic and African Americans have the highest rate of STD infections, according to statistics released in 2009.

Sexual Health Education

STD Testing and Sexual Health Education in Boston, MA

The historic city of Boston is experiencing a steady rise in its rate of STDs, which makes it more important than ever to get tested regularly. The high number of sexually transmitted diseases in teens and young adults seem to show that the city’s sexual education programs are not working as well as health officials hoped.

Boston does have a sexual education program in its public school system, and the city also has condoms available and does teach students the proper way to use the prophylactics. While some residents might point out that the high number of sexually transmitted diseases among teens and college students indicate that these programs are not working, health officials simply point out that the statistics would be much worse without these educational classes.

One of the reasons that education is not always successful is that students must have parental consent to participate in these classes, which is not always given. Sometimes this is due to parental belief that these classes are not appropriate for their child, while other students simply never turn their permission slips back in.

Regardless of the reason there is still a high risk for students to develop an STD, and many do not understand the importance of regular testing. Herpes testing in Boston is important for students since this virus can be transmitted without sexual contact. HIV testing in Boston is also critical and without education many residents do not understand how important this is

 STD Testing Boston,MA

Sexually Transmitted Diseases and Demographics in Boston, MA

Demographics plays a large role in the rate of STDs, and the city of Boston is no exception. This historic city has a diverse population, but unfortunately statistics show that African Americans are at a greater risk of contracting Chlamydia or other sexually transmitted diseases.

Income and cultural beliefs are some of the reasons for the higher number of STDs reported in predominately African American neighborhoods. Lower income households often cannot afford regular STD testing, and these same individuals often lead a lifestyle that puts them at a higher risk.

Cultural beliefs also make it difficult for city and state health officials to stress the importance of regular testing, especially for teens who might fear their parents reaction if they learn that their child is sexually active. Many cultures also look down on men who admit that they have an STD which can make it difficult to ensure everyone is tested regularly.

Other factors that contribute to the growing STD epidemic include the simple belief many young adults feel that it could never happen to them.

Better Sexual Health in Boston, MA

In between tours of the city’s historic sites make sure you get tested regularly for any sexually transmitted disease, especially considering Boston’s high rate of infection. There are a few clinics for residents to go to but the long lines  has many people choosing a more convenient option. Now you can schedule confidential STD testing with one simple phone call and avoid potentially running into someone you know. You can also avoid the long wait so you can still catch a Red Socks game or visit the shops at historic Faneuil Hall.
