What are the STI test options in Detroit,MI?
Although Michigan only ranks as the 23rd most sexually diseased state – making it one of the safer states for sexual health – the overall trend still demands attention to safe practices, regular testing, and vigilant care for all those who are sexually active. Michigan law allows for Expedited Partner Therapy (EPT), as well, meaning those who test positive can receive prescriptions from physicians for their partners.
Approximately 6,675 Detroit residents are living with HIV. Rates for the three most commonly reported STDs in 2016 were: 510.6 per 100,000 residents for chlamydia, 158.4 per 100,000 residents for gonorrhea, and 5.9 per 100,000 residents for syphilis.
Although the number for syphilis might seem low, this is a disease that was rare for more than two decades. The rates of growth are alarming and staying safe through regular STD testing and safe sex practices are now more vital than ever before.
Don’t wait for the onset of symptoms to seek out medical assistance. Testing and information are the first and most vital step to maintaining a long and healthy life, free of STDs and their long-term effects. Detroit has many locations throughout the city for STD testing. For example, you can find a Planned Parenthood location on Cass Avenue and a Detroit Public Health STD and TB Clinics location on East Canfield Street.
