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.
