What are the STI test options in Columbus,GA?

Named one of the top 5 cities for STDS, it is obvious that Columbus has a problem. 

Recent years have seen a major uptick in STD rates with over 2 million cases of gonorrhea, chlamydia, and syphilis being reported in 2016, according to the Centers for Diseases Prevention and Control.

Most commonly reported STDs are syphilis, chlamydia, and gonorrhea. In the state there are approximately 61,500 people affected by chlamydia, 20,100 people affected by gonorrhea, and 1,200 people affected by syphilis. Early detection and treatment are crucial for preventing long-term health effects. And antibiotic-resistant gonorrhea is on the rise. So prevention is definitely preferable to treatment whenever possible.

There’s a Georgia Department of Public Health on Comer Avenue and a Chattahoochee Valley Better Way Foundation Incorporated on Rosemont Drive. Locations like the Southwest Georgia Health Care Incorporated and the New Horizons Community Service Board scattered throughout the city offer testing. Sometimes it is even free STD testing though this often only applies to HIV screenings. 

Reviewed by Our Medical Team
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 Columbus, GA?

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 Columbus, GA?

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.

Looking for a Low Cost or Free STD Testing Clinic? Let's See What's Available in Columbus, GA

You might not always see a clinic or testing facility, but they’re there. There just might not be as many as you would expect, given the STD rates.

So, where can you go when your options aren’t numerous and you want to avoid the greater metro area?

The Columbus and Georgia Department of Community Health, on Cormer Ave, offers education and provides conventional STI testing. The hours change daily, which is confusing, and the fees aren’t easy to figure out either. However, they do encourage you to inquire about free Syphilis testing.

What has become the place where everyone goes are the Columbus GA Free & Income Based Clinics. They have 11 locations, which is partially why they are the ones that everybody knows about. Payment ranges from completely free to a sliding scale. The service and your income will determine where you fall. Appointments are suggested, and not every one of their clinics has the same hours or services. Privacy might not be possible, due to the clinics’ popularity.

UrgentCare and its centers aren’t just small satellite emergency rooms, they also provide STI testing to the public. There are a dozen clinics around Columbus, and walk-ins are encouraged and welcome. No appointments will be accepted so you might be there for several hours. Payment is also needed upfront or insurance details provided.

Affordable or Free HIV Testing Clinics Near Columbus, GA

HIV and AIDS, while rates aren’t improving they’re not getting much worse. This is because certain groups have been formed to tackle every aspect of the virus. With just a couple of years behind them, many are looking forward to seeing what can be accomplished in the future.

Chattahoochee Valley Better Way Foundation is one small local group that is helping people live better with the disease. While testing isn’t provided, they can recommend someone that will treat you with respect and dignity. Sometimes this isn’t easily found, even today.

A disadvantage with free HIV clinics is that it can take up to 7 days to find out the results of the test. One week of worry and stress is a lot to deal with. If you’re determined to go to a public clinic, look for one that has rapid blood and oral HIV testing. Now, results can be available in less than 3 days.

This testing is available at the Columbus and Georgia Departments of Health clinic, across the street from Ashley Station Apartment Homes.

There are no prior requirements. Simply walk-in and ask about their opportunities for free HIV testing.

If none of these facilities are nearby, private HIV testing is a viable option. Discreet with fast results, fees also tend to be lower at the lab.

STD Testing and Sexual Health Education in Columbus, GA

Disputes over what kids learn in health class are erupting, and no one has an idea on how to come to a resolution. So, this has left it up to the districts to decide what is or isn’t included.

Abstinence is a given, and most don’t see this changing. Unintentional pregnancies are down, but not by enough to claim that this approach is working. Considering how many highschoolers are STD positive, it would seem like the answer is “no”.

C V Foundation for Better Living is picking up some of the slack. They want to eliminate the stigma that’s around AIDS and HIV. This includes inviting the community to events and holding classes that all are welcome to attend.

Sadly, Planned Parenthood and its extensive resources is farther away than most people are willing to drive. This has left a wide gap in educational materials. Even free condoms aren’t easy to come by.

There are available sources of information for anyone that wants to learn more about STIs and their potential side effects. You just have to look a little harder than the closest high school.
