What are the STI test options in Fall River,MA?

The tenth-largest city in the state of Massachusetts, Fall River, hasn’t managed to avoid the statewide trend of rising rates for sexually transmitted diseases. Though, the Fall River area has much lower new diagnoses than those of Boston to the north. Regardless, public health officials are hard at work raising awareness for sexual health and encouraging safe sex practices. Massachusetts actually ranked 10th lowest in the states for new chlamydia cases. Whether this is because of better condom use or lower testing occurrence remains to be seen. 

In 2015, Bristol County reported 43 new cases of HIV. That’s a rate of 9 per 100,000 living in the Fall River area.

In 2014 it was 45 new cases, and in 2013 46 cases. These numbers suggest it’s holding steadily at that 9 per 100,000 people rates. If you’re at high risk of getting HIV, look into getting the PrEP vaccine. According to their 2017 report, Bristol County had a rate of 200 cases of chlamydia per 100,000 people. For gonorrhea, the rate was 47 per 100,000 people. Primary and secondary syphilis was noted at 6 cases per 100,000 people.

If you need to get tested in Fall River, you have several affordable options to consider. Citizens for Citizens Family Planning on Hanover Street offers screening for the following STIs: chlamydia, gonorrhea, hepatitis C, herpes, HIV, and syphilis. Your Options Medical on Main Street provides free, confidential information and referrals for testing for women. Two other options are located on President Avenue: MinuteClinic and Quest Diagnostics. Free STD testing might even be available on your Fall River Community calendar.

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.

What same-day testing locations are available in Fall River, MA?

How much will STD testing cost in Fall River, MA?

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.

Additional STD Test Statistics in Fall River, MA

According to statistics recently released by the CDC and Bristol County Health Department the number of sexually transmitted diseases reported in the city is rising among certain demographics. Over the last twenty years the STD rates have been rising in the state and county, and it is finally catching the attention of local health officials.

Even though the recent statistics show that the STD rate for the city and county is well below state and national averages, when you factor in the area’s small population and compare  it to the STD rates they are actually high for the area. This has health officials concerned that residents are not taking responsibility for their sexual health.

The statistics also show an interesting trend. The number of Chlamydia and Gonorrhea incidents are decreasing in teens and adults under the age of 22, but the same is not true for older residents. Men and women ages 24 to 28 are among those with the highest risk for contracting a STD, and this includes Syphilis and HIV.

Men account for the majority of HIV and Syphilis incidents in the city, while Chlamydia affects more women. When it comes to Gonorrhea that number of cases reported in women is decreasing, but it is rising in men. The Herpes virus is also spreading at an alarming rate, especially in area high schools.

Some of the other statistics that highlight the growing STD problem and the need for regular testing include,

  • The Chlamydia rate in 2015 was 296.6 per 100,000 residents with the majority of incidents in women ages 24 to 28 years of age.
  • The HIV rate for Bristol County in 2015 was 243.4 per 100,000 residents.
  • There were two incidents of early latent Syphilis reported in the county for 2015.

Sexual Health Education

STD Testing and Sexual Health Education in Fall River, MA

In 2015 the state senate passed a bill that now requires public schools to include medically accurate and comprehensive information in their sex education classes. While students will still be taught that abstinence is the best choice, they will also learn about the importance of using condoms if they do decide to become sexually active.

While this is a positive first step most local health officials agree that more needs to be done to help educate students and their parents about the risks associated with STDs and the various ways these diseases can be spread.

The reason health officials are concerned is that the new law does not require public schools to actually offer sex education classes, only that if they do the program must include information that is medically accurate and pertains to today’s teens. Unfortunately, public schools that do not want to include information on contraception can simply decide not to provide these classes to their students. This means that a large number of teens and young adults still do not understand how important it is to be tested regular or that they behaviors could be putting their health at risk.

Residents often do not understand how important regular HIV testing in Fall River is or that the simple procedure is the only way to positively detect the disease. The same is true regarding regular Herpes testing in Fall River, and it could help prevent the virus from continuing to spread through the city’s high schools.

Sexually Transmitted Diseases and Demographics in Fall River, MA

There are several factors that are causing the STD rates to rise in the city and surrounding county. One reason is the lack of sex education programs, and this is leaving teens unprepared. Many do not realize that STDs can be spread through a variety of methods and that it is important to get tested regularly regardless of sexual activity.

It is not uncommon for teens to graduate without understanding how important it is to always use protection, even if it is a monogamous relationship. The same is also true for older residents who don’t have easy access to the information they need to protect themselves from STDs. Adults are also staying active sexually longer, and this is also contributing to the high STD rates.

The small city is also dealing with a lack of community testing centers, and this is making it difficult for residents to take care of their sexual health. The few STI clinics that are open often have long lines that many residents don’t want to spend the day standing in. Lower income residents are also finding it difficult to afford regular testing since the simple procedure is no longer covered under Medicaid. The new government health care plan is being blamed as one of the main reasons that STD rates are rising across the city and state.

Better Sexual Health in Fall River, MA

Before you tour Lizzie’s home it is important to take a few minutes to take care of your sexual health. The number of STDs reported each year is rising, and this means that everyone should be tested regularly for all sexually transmitted diseases. It is understandable if you don’t want to spend the entire day waiting in line at a community clinic, and now you don’t have to since you can easily schedule confidential STD testing with one simple phone call. This way you only have to spend a few minutes at a local lab, which still gives you plenty of time to explore the historic city.
