What are the STI test options in Cranston,RI?

Once called Pawtuxet, the city of Cranston holds the center of the population for Rhode Island. The statewide cases of HIV reported in 2014 jumped by 33% and the rates of syphilis increased by a staggering 79%. Not to be outdone, gonorrhea rates rose by 30% as well. And those numbers only include reported cases. Between 2011-2015, newly diagnosed cases of HIV were at 10 per 100,000 in Cranston. Infectious syphilis was about 20 in every 100,000, gonorrhea at around 50 per 100,000, and chlamydia coming in over 300 per 100,000. 

Health Department officials for Rhode Island hold “hook-up” apps, such as Tinder, partially responsible for these skyrocketing numbers.

The community of Cranston is rich with social outreach programs to try to combat these epidemic-level numbers. The Cranston area plans to continue their strategies of educating, testing, and treatments in order to keep their residents healthy and happy. 

If you are in the Cranston area and need STI screenings or treatment, there are some affordable options available. Family Health Services on Cranston Street is open five days a week with evening and Saturday appointments upon request. They offer confidential STD screening and payment is based off your income using a sliding scale. There is also a Minute Clinic located over on Reservoir Avenue, they take walk-ins, but be prepared for a bit of a wait and there’s no guarantee you’ll be seen same day. For more options, or to search for free STD testing, your best bet is to journey into Providence.

Additional STD Test Statistics in Cranston, RI

Rhode Island recently saw syphilis cases increase by 79 percent. HIV cases increased by 33 percent with some calling the situation an epidemic. After decades of public health programs, awareness campaigns and the elimination of the stigma surrounding contraception, the rate of STDs decreased. Unfortunately, that is no longer true. Rhode Island saw a swing from declining rates to skyrocketing rates in cases of syphilis, gonorrhea, HIV and other STDs. This is according to Rhode Island’s Department of Health.

  • Syphilis cases increased by 79 percent.
  • Gonorrhea cases increased by 30 percent.
  • Newly-identified HIV cases increased by 33 percent.

A spokesperson for the state’s health department notes that Rhode Island is fortunate. There is a partnership among state agencies, community-based organizations, and healthcare providers to continue to educate, test, and treat for STDs. With rates going up, more needs to be done.

Officials point to several reasons for the rates going up. Some of it comes from better testing from healthcare providers. Another reason could be more high risk behavior after using social media to arrange casual and often anonymous sexual encounters, having sex without a condom, having multiple sex partners, and having sex while under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

Rates of syphilis, gonorrhea, and chlamydia are at a 10-year high in Rhode Island. We hear accounts from health care providers who say their infected patients met partners through online websites and apps. Officials believe these services and apps can lead to encounters that are at least partially to blame for the increase in Rhode Island of STDs. The state health department does not have firm data on how many people contracted the diseases through such encounters but officials state these technologies do play a role.

STD Testing and Sexual Health Education in Cranston, RI

Rhode Island state law requires sexuality education. Local school boards decide which subjects this education must cover and the grade level in which topics are introduced. The information provided must be age and culturally appropriate, medically accurate, and unbiased. Abstinence must be covered as the only completely effective protection against unplanned pregnancy, sexually transmitted diseases, and HIV/AIDS. Teaching about contraceptives, such as condoms, the Pill, or the Patch, is also required.

Rhode Island state law requires STDS and HIV/AIDS education. The information provided must be age appropriate and medically accurate. Abstinence must be covered and stressed as the only completely effective protection against unplanned pregnancy, sexually transmitted diseases, and HIV/AIDS when transmitted sexually.

Teaching about contraceptives, such as condoms, birth control pills, or the Patch, is also required. It does not have to be stressed. Parents must be notified and given the chance to review the curriculum if they request.  A student does not need the parents’ permission to participate in sexuality education or HIV/AIDS education classes. But the parents can take their child out of the classes if they object to what is being taught.

The recent data on increases in STDs in Rhode Island stresses the importance of educating and encouraging young people to begin talking to a doctor, nurse, or health educator about sexual health before becoming sexually active and especially after becoming sexually active. This is according to Rosemary Reilly-Chammat, EdD, Rhode Island Health Department HIV/AIDS Sexuality Specialist. She believes it is never too early to learn about making HIV and STD testing part of routine healthcare.

Sexually Transmitted Diseases and Demographics in Cranston, RI

Demographics play a role in STD rates in the city and area. One factor to note is that among the gay, bisexual, and men having sex with men demographic new HIV/AIDs and syphilis cases increased at a faster rate. This is according to Rhode Island’s health department. Another demographic is the African-American, Hispanic, and young adult population. Infection rates of all STDs have a greater impact on this demographic.  

The high school/young adult demographic is the focus of the Rhode Island health department’s efforts at education about STD prevention, routine testing, and treatment as priorities. In part the effort involves collaboration with state agencies and community partners to promote HIV and STD testing services. The state education department also works under a grant to make sexual health education more accessible to these high school students. Some of those measures include promoting abstinence.

Those who are 15 to 24 years old are the demographic for men and women that shows the highest numbers and rates of chlamydia and gonorrhea. Half of all new STD diagnoses in the U.S. are among young people.  With syphilis rates high in your area we should consider that primary and secondary syphilis are the most infectious stages of the disease and are rising among men who have sex with men.

STI Testing Resources in Cranston, RI

In your city and state there are several resources available to you concerning STI testing. In Rhode Island you do not need permission from your parent or guardian to get tested for STDs and HIV, or to consent to treatment in your state if you are a minor. Officials in the state encourage a minor to ask questions about confidentiality when you call to make your appointment. You can ask if the organization will tell parents or anyone else about your appointment.

To make sure your visit is confidential, tell the clinic staff how to contact you about test results and future appointments without your parents knowing if that is what you want. Your state offers both anonymous and confidential HIV testing. This means that if you get tested for HIV, you can choose to either have your results confidentially reported to the health department using your name, or have your results anonymously reported to the health department using a number code, not your name.
