Additional STD Test Statistics in Cincinnati, OH

Recent statistics show what health officials already feared, Cincinnati has been experiencing a steady rise in the number of reported STDs for over a decade. The Queen City ranks highest in the state for Chlamydia infections between 2010 and 2014, along with surrounding Hamilton County.

It is not just Chlamydia that has city health officials worried but Syphilis and HIV diagnoses are also on the rise. In 2010 the rate of primary and secondary Syphilis cases rose to 32 per 100,000 residents which is astronomical when compare to the state average of 2.0. Health officials have even gone so far as to state that Cincinnati and Hamilton County are currently going through a “mini STD epidemic”

Some of the other statistics that show the alarming increase in reported STDs for Cincinnati include;

  • Hamilton County and Cincinnati have a Syphilis rate that is 9x the national average in 2010.
  • While Gonorrhea rates have decreased slightly between 2010 and 2014, Cincinnati still has the highest average in the state.
  • Between 2004 and 2007 the HIV/AIDS rate was 19.8, which is the highest in the state.

While some city leaders are pointing to the decrease in some STDs, others are not convinced that this is the start of a positive trend in reducing the number of infections. Most health officials agree that until Cincinnatians are being tested regularly for any of the STDs the rates will continue to increase, and residents will still be at risk.

STD Testing and Sexual Health Education in Cincinnati, OH

Sexual education programs in city schools are important and until Cincinnati has standardized classes the STD rates will continue to rise. The city learns towards abstinence programs in the classroom, but there are some sexual education programs in some of the more progressive schools.

Almost all schools do have guidance counselors who are available to discuss the potential risks and dangers associated with engaging in unprotected sex, but many students simply are not comfortable discussing this private subject with well meaning adults. Many schools in Cincinnati also offer condoms to students, but once again many are too embarrassed to request one from an adult.

To help educate teens and curb the increasing number of students who are testing positive for an STD, some community outreach programs are offering educational classes for those who are interested. Along with explaining the dangers associated with being sexually active and not using protection, these programs also inform students and parents that it is possible to contract an STD without engaging in sex.

Regular Herpes testing in Cincinnati is especially for high school students who often pass the virus without evening knowing they are infected, and the same can also be true for HIV/AIDS. Not everyone displays symptoms and without regular HIV testing in Cincinnati you can easily spread the potentially deadly virus without knowing it.


Sexually Transmitted Diseases and Demographics in Cincinnati, OH

Demographics will always play a role in STD rates, and Cincinnati is no different. Cultural and religious beliefs are only two examples of how demographics can cause sexually transmitted disease rates to rise.

Often this makes it awkward for teenagers, and even adults to get tested. Adults do not want to be viewed as being “unclean” or a “sinner” simply because they contracted an STD. Without proper education, it will be almost impossible for some residents to understand how easy it can be to contract a sexually transmitted disease.

Lower incomes can also cause a rise in STD rates, and make it difficult for families to afford regular testing. Alcohol and drug abuse can also lead to a higher rate of STDs, and many officials are blaming this for the sudden jump in Syphilis.

Other demographical factors that are contributing to Cincinnati’s high STD rate include fewer clinics in the neighborhoods, along with the city’s basic design. The seven hills that comprise Cincinnati also make it difficult to get around. When it is not easy and convenient to find a health care clinic, residents are less likely to be tested regularly even when they understand the potential risks to their health.
