What are the STI test options in Cambridge,MA?

Middlesex County’s STD rates are lower than Suffolk County’s, but still higher than many other areas of Massachusetts. In 2015, the HIV rate for Middlesex County was 10.5 cases per 100K people. The 2016 rates for chlamydia and gonorrhea were 298.3 and 55.3, and the rate for primary and secondary syphilis was 6.2.

Health officials are especially worried about young people who are sexually active and not using protection.

Since they do not want their parents to know they are having sex, they may avoid a doctor visit that would show up on their health insurance records.

Some organizations counter this by providing free, confidential testing and counseling. Health officials recommend that sexually active individuals always use condoms but caution that they may not prevent herpes.

Cambridge has some clinics around the city, including some free STD testing options for students only. The CHA Cambridge Teen Health Center provides STD testing and counseling at different locations throughout the city (check their website for times and places).

MIT Medical provides STD testing for students, and the HPV vaccine is also available there. The CHA Zinberg Clinic on Cambridge St tests for STDs and prescribes PrEP.

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 Cambridge, MA?

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 Cambridge, MA?

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

Sexually Transmitted Diseases and Demographics in Cambridge, MA

More educated people have a greater understanding of the risks associated with unprotected sex. Cambridge rates reflect lower numbers of people reporting Chlamydia and Gonorrhea than in many other sectors of the country. The troubling issue is the high Syphilis rate. There is a high likelihood that the majority of the population have a working knowledge of safe sex practices. They also realize the dangers of letting a potential STD infection go untreated and are willing to submit to testing and treatment when needed. There are pockets of poverty stricken communities within the Cambridge area. People from impoverished backgrounds are more likely to miss out on important sexual health education. This increases their risk for getting an STD. In addition, they may not recognize symptoms of STD infections or they may not realize their grave need to get tested.

STD Testing and Sexual Health Education in Cambridge, MA

Currently sexual health education campaigns underway in the area. Public schools provide mandatory sex education classes as a regular part of the curriculum. This is useful in reaching students before they are most likely to start experimenting with sex. If they suspect that they may have an STD, they will know where they can go for HIV testing or for a Herpes test. This information will be with them for the rest of their lives and the hope is that in the generations to come, that this will help to curb the spread of STD infections.

The internet is overflowing with public information about STD rates, symptoms and prevention for anyone that is interested. The Center for Disease Control posts updates on past and current STD rates with detailed tables in an effort to better inform the public about this massive health problem that is nationwide in scope.

Just a glance at STD rates over the past ten years shows that there are some consistent trends and patterns. Chlamydia is the most predominant form of sexually transmitted disease. Twice the number of women are diagnosed with this STD as men. The data has been consistent in the patterns that show which groups are at the most significant risk.

Anyone who has unprotected sex could get an STD. All it takes is having sexual relations with someone who is infected. Your risk goes up when you sleep with multiple partners or a person whose monogamy cannot be verified. It only takes once. Sexual behaviors and the presence or lack of safe sex practices are what can make or break you.

Better Sexual Health in Cambridge, MA

Some STDs will present with symptoms almost immediately, while others may not show any signs for weeks, months, or even years. The only way to know for sure is to get tested. You can quickly, easily and conveniently order your testing at any time. You’ll just need to follow up with your order by visiting a nearby testing lab for confidential and private testing completion. It doesn’t take much of your time. The average lab visit is between 15 and 20 minutes. In some cases, it takes even less time. If you have questions or concerns, you may ask the staff or technicians and they will do their best to answer to the best of their ability.
