What are the STI test options in Clarkstown,NY?
About an hour drive north of New York City, lies the city of Clarkstown. This town includes the community of New City—which serves as county seat to Rockland County. Rates of sexually transmitted diseases are rapidly increasing across the entire state of New York (and the rest of the country). Health officials recommend getting tested regularly, even if you have no symptoms. A lot of STDs are asymptomatic, especially in the early stages, but left untreated they can cause lasting damage to your health.
The rate of prevalence for HIV in 2014 in Rockland County was 10.0 per 100K. One of the higher rates for all New York counties.
Compared to other counties, Rockland came in with a low rate for chlamydia in 2014—230.9 per 100,000. Hopefully, this number will stay low as the stigma around getting tested is banished and more people seek the treatment they need. Gonorrhea in the Clarkstown area for the same year was also lower than other surrounding areas with a rate of 24.0 per 100,000 people. Early syphilis was reported at 4.7 and late syphilis at 11.8 per 100K.
