What are the STI test options in Cape Coral,FL?

Southwest Florida health officials are worried about the rising STD rates, especially syphilis. The disease was under control in the US a short decade ago, but it made a comeback in recent years, mostly due to a decrease in condom use.

Dating apps have also contributed to the rise in STI rates, as people meet others for sex without find out much about them, including their sexual health status.

In 2015, there were 2,035 people living with HIV or AIDS in Lee County, with a prevalence rate of 334 per 100K people, under Florida’s rate of 615. But health officials believe there are still people out there who haven’t been tested, and social stigma prevents many of them from coming into the clinics. But medical professionals are only there to help you and treatment is available.

In 2017, 2,841 people in Lee County were diagnosed with chlamydia, at a rate of 405.4. The gonorrhea and infectious syphilis rates were 110 and 6.

There are more STD-testing clinics across the river in Fort Myers than in Cape Coral. Planned Parenthood is located in the College Plaza Shopping Center. They test for STIs and treat all except HIV, and the fee is on a sliding scale.

Some of the CVS MinuteClinics provide basic screenings. Verity Medical Clinic on Salrose Ln also provides STD testing. Keep an eye on the community calendar, especially around STD Awareness Month. You may be able to find free STD testing opportunities.

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.

What same-day testing locations are available in Cape Coral, FL?

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 Cape Coral, FL?

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.

Additional STD Test Statistics in Cape Coral, FL

Located on the Gulf of Mexico many residents find it difficult to accept the fact that their planned community is experiencing a health epidemic.

In the past twenty years reported STDs has continued to climb each year, and health officials are worried that this trend shows no signs of slowing down. Particularly at risk are teens and young adults. Even though some of these numbers were expected to be high, health officials were still surprised that these sexually transmitted diseases were so prevalent in the area’s youth.

While young women presented the high risk of contracting Chlamydia, the recent statistics also show that the number of HIV infections is also on the rise, and in recent years the county has had the dubious distinction of ranking 16th in the state. Syphilis diagnoses are also increasing in frequency, especially among men. As these numbers continue to rise, health officials continue to stress the importance of being checked regularly for all sexually transmitted diseases.

  • In 2008 the county ranked 20th in the state for HIV diagnoses and by 2014 it had the 16th highest rate of infections.
  • 2011 saw 668 cases of Chlamydia in teens ages 11 to 19.
  • There were 6 incidents of primary and secondary Syphilis in teens reported in 2011.
  • Gonorrhea incidents rose to a reported 143 cases in 2011.

STD Testing and Sexual Health Education in Cape Coral, FL

As the number of sexually transmitted diseases continues to climb, parents and school officials are still continuing to clash over the education programs that are available for students. While students were required to participate in sexual education programs in order to graduate, changes made in recent years has now made these classes an option students can take if they want. During the 2008-2009 school year officials changed the requirements for graduation making it possible for students to replace these important health classes with physical education instead.

While allowing students to substitute sex education classes for gym has helped lower the obesity rate in teens, it is doing very little to protect them from the STDs. The majority of students are not fully aware of how sexually transmitted infections are spread which is putting them and the rest of the community at risk.

 

Sexually Transmitted Diseases and Demographics in Cape Coral, FL

One of the reasons this ocean side city is seeing such high numbers of sexually transmitted diseases is due to its diverse population. The city is proud of its diverse demographical makeup, but this is also making it difficult for health officials to stress the importance of regular testing.

Many older residents simply do understand the risk, even though they are staying sexually active later in life. It is also not uncommon for retirees to not be tested simply because many of their care givers also do not understand that they could be at risk.

The conservative attitude toward sex and education classes is also contributing to the problem. Since many teens and their parents do not understand how STDs are spread or that it is possible to contract one without engaging in intercourse, many do not feel that they need to be tested.

Other factors contributing to the high number of STIs reported each year includes the large number of tourists who come for the beautiful beaches and weather. Many of the visitors to the area are already infected with a STD, and end up unknowingly passing it to permanent residents.

Long lines at the few testing centers in the area often makes it inconvenient for residents to get screened regularly, and many of the area’s lower income families find it difficult to pay for this important health test.
