What are the STI test options in Fayetteville,AR?
Located in Washington County, Fayetteville is smack dab in the middle of the growing STD concern facing the nation and especially the south.
Since 2013 STDs that were once almost eliminated have been increasing in prevalence every year.
In Washington County, as in other parts of the country, the three most commonly reported STDs are gonorrhea, chlamydia, and syphilis. Reports from 2017 counted chlamydia cases to have risen to a rate of 538.8 cases per 100,000 residents. HIV rates increased in 2017 to 176.2 cases per 100,000 residents. Chlamydia is the most widely spread STD, with gonorrhea coming in second.
Gonorrhea can be especially troubling because it presents as asymptomatic in men (meaning there are no outward signs that the body is hosting an infection) and often asymptomatic in women, as well. And although syphilis was almost eliminated in the year 2000, it is now on a steady yearly climb.
Testing locations include the NWA Center for Equality on North Church Avenue, Loving Choices on South Duncan Avenue, and the Arkansas Department of Health has multiple locations, including one on Wimberly Drive.
Various organizations now offer advocacy, education, and resources to help drive back down the rate of STD transmission. Services offered include free STD and HIV testing, along with support groups, community outreach, and social events.
