What are the STI test options in Brownsville,TX?

In 2017, there were 827 people living with HIV or AIDS in Cameron County, with a prevalence rate of 195.2 per 100K people, just over half of the Texas rate of 320.4. Those rates are not that high, but health officials are most worried about who is affected by them.

In the Rio Grande Valley, one out of every five new HIV cases is a teen.

Health officials say that insufficient sex education is largely to blame, as youth do not know how to protect themselves. They urge parents to talk to their children about sex, STDs, and protection, no matter how uncomfortable the conversation is.

Once someone is tested and found to be positive, medication can suppress the virus, making it less likely to be passed on. But first, one must be tested. In 2017, 2,083 people in Cameron County were diagnosed with chlamydia, at a rate of 491.6 per 100K people, just a bit under Texas’s rate of 511.6. The county’s gonorrhea and syphilis rates were 66.6 and 36.3.

There are not many clinics in Brownsville, but there is a regional clinic that offers free STD testing. The schedule is a bit irregular, as they move to different venues. Keep in mind that public clinics typically have long waits. There is also a Planned Parenthood on Alton Gloor Blvd. They test for STIs and treat all except HIV, and the fee is on a sliding scale.

Reviewed by Our Medical Team
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 Brownsville, TX?

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 Brownsville, TX?

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.

Additional STD Test Statistics in Brownsville, TX

STD Testing Brownsville, TX

With its close proximity to Mexico, this south Texas city is home to a culturally diverse population that is experiencing a growing rise in the number of reported cases of STDs. In the past twenty years the population of this city has grown to make it the 16th largest in the state, and this has also brought problems. Recent statistics released in 2013 showed that 200 were infected with HIV in the first four months of the year. What is truly frightening to health care officials is that this is only one small statistic for a short period.

  • In 2013 the number of HIV cases in this southern city had risen to more than 3,000 people.
  • The number of residents testing positive for Hepatitis is 1.6 times higher than the state average.
  • In the last five years the number of reported cases of STDs has risen higher than the state.
  • There are more 15-19 year olds with an STD than any other age group.

STD Testing at 1204 Jose Colunga Jr. St, Brownsville, TX 78521, USA

Qualifications

The clinic appreciates it if you call first. This will save you time and prevent a long wit where you still might not even get in. The county does have programs that help with the cost of testing. When you call, it is a good time to ask about this.

Treatment Options

Even though there are physicians here, they are still limited in what they can treat. This is mainly due to a lack of some medications, along with other therapies used to treat sexually transmitted diseases. They can send you home with antibiotics. These can be used for bacterial infections.

STD Testing and Sexual Health Education in Brownsville, TX

Unfortunately most of a teenager’s sexual education is supposed to be supplied by their parents or guardian. While the reasoning behind the city’s lack of sexual education classes is to not cross boundaries that parents aren’t comfortable with, it is also leading to the higher rates of sexually transmitted diseases. Even though Brownsville is considered a small city, it is still leading the state in high STD rates. Not only is this a problem for the health of the infected person, but also anyone they come into contact with.

Another problem plaguing this border city is the growing number of sex traffickers who simply do not care about anyone’s sexual health. When all of this is allowed to go unnoticed, it is only logical to experience a sudden and steady increase in the number of reported STDs.
