What are the STI test options in Corpus Christi,TX?

Nueces County reports rising numbers, similar to statewide and nationwide trends. Syphilis rates in 2009 totaled only 30 cases across the county; however, by 2018 that number had increased to a total of 146 cases reported in Nueces County.

Also worth noting that now antibiotic-resistant gonorrhea cases are on the rise.

Health officials believe the popularity of dating apps has contributed. In response, some apps – like Grindr – now include such features as HIV testing reminders.

The City of Corpus Christi Health Clinics offer prevention education and free or low cost testing services at health fairs and special events. Services offered include free condoms and educational services to help combat the STD problem.

Programs, like Healthy Texas Women, serve specific demographics to help further education, prevention, and healthy practices. By Texas law, minors are required to obtain parental consent for  free STD testing. Things that will help end the STD epidemic include better funding, stigma reduction, and more PrEP clinics.

From the South Texas Substance Abuse Recovery Services on Antelope Street to the Corpus Christi-Nueces City County Health District on Horne Road, there are testing locations scattered throughout and around Corpus Christi.

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 Corpus Christi, TX?

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 Corpus Christi, TX?

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.

STD Testing at 2882 Holly Rd, Corpus Christi, TX 78415, USA

Qualifications

Go online for an appointment, it is the easiest way. There is also a tab for "financial assistance". You just need to fill out the form and bring it with you when you go in. You may have to provide proof of local residency but a list of anything you might need to bring is on the form that you print out.

Treatment Options

This is mainly a testing and advocacy center. They concentrate more on informing the public and do not have the resources necessary to treat sexually transmitted infections.

You can get a referral to a specialist, if needed. They can also give you a prescription for treating some STDs.

Summary

CBWF has it's main clinic on Holly Rd. Public transportation is lacking in that area but you can also call for their mobile testing unit. They might not be able to come to your house but the unit does cover most neighborhoods. You just need to ask for the address, date and times.

STD Testing at 4410 Dillon Ln, Corpus Christi, TX 78415, USA

Qualifications

The staff will see if you qualify for financial assistance when you come in for your visit. You will need to bring a picture I.D. and proof of income.

Scheduling your visit is quick and simple. Go online or call the clinic. Teens are also welcome but the center also has a clinic that is dedicated to minors where they might feel more comfortable.

Treatment Options

Once you have your test results, the question of treatment is usually next. The staff will discuss your diagnosis with you, along with what medications you need to take. They can give you the prescriptions but you will need to fill them at an outside pharmacy.

They also have support for HIV positive results and will help you find a medical care giver.

Summary

What really sets this clinic apart is that it is for women and men. For some, this can make it easier for partners to come for testing at the same time. Neither gender will feel out of place and this is important when you are discussing your sexual health.

There are two other locations in the city and suburbs. If you can't make it here, another might be easier for you to get to.

Sexual Health Education

STD Testing and Sexual Health Education in Corpus Christi, TX

Efforts on the part of local officials include the mandatory inclusion of sexual health education which is infused into the public school curriculum. High numbers of positive tests for Chlamydia show that there is a great need for reaching these young people with factual information about the dangers and consequences of unprotected sexual activity. In addition to this, students are told where to go for a Herpes test or for HIV testing in the area.

Sexually Transmitted Diseases and Demographics in Corpus Christi, TX

CDC reports generated for the Corpus Christi, TX area show that there are definite trends in the characteristics of groups which have the highest rates of infection for particular sexually transmitted diseases. Any time a person engages in unsafe sex, there is a risk, but the numbers show that certain groupings of persons test positive more than others.

Chlamydia rates are the highest in females over males. Those in the 20 to 24 age group have the highest incidences followed by 15 to 19 and 25 to 20. Hispanic women are the highest with regard to ethnicity with Black and then White. Trends also show an increase in the number of males who engage in male to male sex testing positive for Chlamydia.

Gonorrhea rates are also at a nine percent increase with males testing positive more than females. Age groups with the highest numbers are 20 to 24 followed by 15 to 19, then 25 to 29 for this area. Syphilis infections have gone up by 7.3 percent. These statistics combine all types of Syphilis including primary, secondary and late stages.

It is believed that high poverty rates in the area have an impact on risk factors. A lack of education about sexually transmitted diseases along with limited financial resources can make finding quality health care for testing and treatment more difficult. Although free clinics exist to provide free or reduced rates for testing, they are subject to funding availability which means that some persons in need of testing may have to wait, further spreading infection.

Even though the public schools are making every effort to educate youth about the realities of sexually transmitted diseases, the numbers of positive cases of every type of STD is steadily rising. More needs to be done to help curb the epidemic that is occurring in high school aged children.
