What are the STI test options in Cary,NC?
Part of a larger metropolis, Cary is finding that it has some of the same problems that are affecting the area. Wake County health officials warn that this will only get worse if STD testing doesn’t become a part of residents’ health care routine.
Chlamydia and Gonorrhea infection rates are on the rise. This is especially affecting teens and young adults.
Syphilis rates have experienced a slight increase since 2016 but local health officials are worried that this might change without regular STD testing.
HIV rates in the county have risen dramatically, with an estimated 174 cases diagnosed between 2015 – 2016. 82.6 percent of new diagnoses occurred in men with females accounting for 17.4 percent.
To help combat the growing STD problem the Wake County Health Department has ensured that there are clinics and testing centers. The Women’s Center on Cox Ave provides several services, along with the Curo Women’s Care Clinic on Louisburg Rd. College students can also take advantage of testing at the campus health center.
Free STD testing can be available for those that meet the requirements. Since days and times do frequently change, additional information can be found on the county’s government page.
