What are the STI test options in Fort Collins,CO?
Fort Collins sits in Larimer County in Colorado, and over the last five years significant increases have been witnessed in STD rates.
Gonorrhea cases increased by 97% between 2012 and 2016; sexually active individuals under the age of 30 are at the greatest risk for contracting gonorrhea, which in turn increases HIV risk.
These rates are definitely alarming; especially considering gonorrhea is quickly becoming resistant to antibiotic treatments and chlamydia can cause reproductive damage. Some clinics offer low cost testing on a sliding scale fee while others are offering free condoms to help combat this problem.
With almost 20 million STDs every year now, the health costs are reaching almost $16 billion, according to the CDC. Also, STDs that go untreated can lead to health complications like infertility and miscarriage. Denver Public Health stresses importance of regular testing for all sexually active persons and even has free STD testing for those that don’t mind the possibility of waiting to be seen.
Don’t wait for symptoms to seek out testing. Good health begins with preventative measures.
