What are the STI test options in Columbia,MD?

Howard County health officials are worried about the STD rates, which reached record highs in 2016. In particular, teens are becoming infected by chlamydia and gonorrhea at alarming rates.

To combat this, health professionals are focusing on sex education and are providing free, confidential STD testing and counseling, even inviting teens to produce STI-awareness videos.

In 2017, Howard County had a chlamydia rate of 353.8 per 100K people, a gonorrhea rate of 73.2, and a primary and secondary syphilis rate of 4.7. In 2015, there were 400 people living in Howard County with HIV or AIDS, with a prevalence rate of 169 per 100K people.

There are a number of STD-testing clinics in Columbia, and even more options if you can get to Baltimore (and it can be easier to find free STD testing in larger cities). The Howard County Health Department on Stanford Blvd provides STI and HIV testing on a sliding-fee scale. You can do the HIV test anonymously if you prefer.

Chase Brexton Health Care, on Knoll North Drive, provides walk-in HIV testing. They test for other STDs for an affordable fee if you’re not a patient.

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. 

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 Columbia, MD?

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 Columbia, MD?

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

STD Testing and Sexual Health Education in Columbia, MD

When it comes to sex education in Maryland each county is responsible for designing and implementing its own program. The only guidelines counties need to follow are that these education classes must include information on all STDs, along with how having sex can effect and change students’ lives. The programs should also reflect the views and beliefs of the county, and in Howard this means that the sex education program promotes abstinence.

Parental permission is also required for students to participate in the classes.

The affluent community of Columbia mistakenly believes that sexually transmitted diseases are not a problem for their students, and that the only information they need in their classes pertains to the benefits of abstinence. Even though abstinence can and does prevent unplanned pregnancies, it does little to stop the spread of all of the STDs.

It is also not uncommon for parents to decide that their children are better off not learning about the responsibilities associated with being sexually active, and this means that the majority will never learn about the importance of regular STI testing.

Regular Herpes testing in Columbia is especially important for high school students, since they present the highest risk for infection. Regular HIV testing in Columbia is vital for everyone’s safety, and the simple procedure is also the only sure method currently available to accurately detect the virus.

Sexually Transmitted Diseases and Demographics in Columbia, MD

Since the city is actually comprised of 10 planned communities the demographics are a little different in Columbia. It is considered one of the wealthiest communities in the country, and this also includes the surrounding county.

Instead many residents simply believe that a STD will never affect them, and that these viruses are problems in other communities. Considering the high STD rate in the area, it should be clear to residents that this is not the case. As long as they believe that they are safe from all STDs and do not get tested on a regular basis the disease rates will continue to rise.

One surprising reason for the city’s high STD rate is the growing problem with illicit drugs among older residents. This is also being blamed for the increase in Syphilis diagnoses, and it is quickly becoming another problem that city leaders need to address.
