Additional STD Test Statistics in Dayton, OH

Recently released statistics show Dayton and surrounding Montgomery County are currently experiencing a rise in reported STDs, and the data shows this trend is nothing new.

What is even more disturbing is that the statistics also show that primary and/or secondary Syphilis incidents are also rising, and a large number of the new cases can be traced back to larger cities. With Cincinnati’s STD rates on the rise, it seems that it is also affecting Dayton and Montgomery County.

Even without some STD outbreaks being traced back to other cities, Montgomery County is still well above state averages. In 2012 the incident rates for Gonorrhea was almost double that of Ohio. Syphilis rates also increased between 2010 and 2014, and it is affecting men and women of all ethnicities and age groups.

Some of the recently released numbers that have health officials growing extremely concerned include;

  • In 2011 there were 70 new reports of Syphilis compared to only 26 in 2010.
  • Statistics show that heterosexual women and African Americans are at the greatest risk for contracting primary or secondary Syphilis.
  • In 2012 there were 63 residents’ diagnoses with HIV.
  • The Chlamydia rate for Montgomery County was 546.0 compared to 462.0 for the state.
  • Gonorrhea rates were almost double state averages at 212.3 as of February 2014.

STD Testing and Sexual Health Education in Dayton, OH

Sexual education programs are the best method available in STD prevention, but currently Dayton public schools are only required to teach the state sponsored abstinence only curriculum. Educators do have to discuss venereal diseases with students, but regular STD testing is not included in the classes.

Without this information it is difficult for students and parents to understand the risks and dangers associated with having unprotected sex, or the fact that STDs can be transmitted in various ways. Without a comprehensive program in place in the city schools, health officials are worried that the STD rates won’t begin to fall.

Making it more difficult for students to be educated about the dangers associated with sexually transmitted diseases is the fact that many teens and their parents opt out of these programs. While the information contained in the classes might be limited, it is still better than not receiving any education at all.

A comprehensive sexual education program will remind teens and students that STDs can be easily spread. The Herpes virus is common in schools, and students can easily pass it to each other without having sex, and the same is also true for the HIV virus.

Regular Herpes testing in Dayton is crucial, along with HIV testing.

Sexually Transmitted Diseases and Demographics in Dayton, OH

Lower income neighborhoods often have a shortage of community centers which is also contributing to the incidence rate of STDs in these areas. Inability to afford regular testing and a lack of caring about their sexual health, is also causing sexually transmitted disease rates to soar among some of the poorer residents.

Other demographical factors include age and gender, along with the city’s strong religious and conservative beliefs. Many parents and teens simply aren’t comfortable discussing sex or STDs, which can make it difficult for students who are sexually active to get the permission they need for regular testing.

The old stereotypes that accompany many of the sexually transmitted diseases are also playing a role in the city’s rising STD rates, especially among African American men who are often embarrassed are too ashamed to admit that they might need to see a health care professional. Teenage girls facing peer pressure can find it difficult to say “no”, and even engage in risky sexual behavior.
