What are the STI test options in Fort Smith,AR?

Arkansas has some of the highest STD rates in the country, and budget cuts in the public health sector are not helping the problem. Clinics are having to close down, meaning some people have to travel longer distances to find a clinic.

For someone who is poor, this is a big problem, especially if they have to miss work and don’t have a car. Because of this, many people go untested and diseases go untreated. Mobile clinics and free STD testing can help with this problem, but those are not available everywhere.

In 2016, Sebastian County had an HIV prevalence rate of 198.3 per 100K people, a bit below Arkansas’s rate of 222.3.

That same year, Sebastian County’s chlamydia rate was 456.3 per 100K people, in comparison with the state’s average of 562. The gonorrhea and (primary and secondary) syphilis rates were 146.3 and 5.5.

You can find free STD testing at the county level. Keep in mind that public clinics often have long waits, increasing the likelihood that someone will see you there. You can explore other options if this bothers you. The Baptist Health Center for Infectious Disease also provides STI testing and treatment.

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. 

SaferSTD has researched and identified the most accredited and most reputable testing locations. Click here to find a preferred location near you.

What same-day testing locations are available in Fort Smith, AR?

Some STD testing clinics offer same-day walk-in options without an appointment. Below are nearby preferred locations that offer this option.

How much will STD testing cost in Fort Smith, AR?

The cost of STD testing depends on whether you select private, public, or at-home testing, as well as the type of test(s) you need.

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. 

SaferSTD has researched and identified reputable locations that offer upfront pricing without hidden fees. Click here to find a preferred location near you.

Sexual Health Education

STD Testing and Sexual Health Education in Fort Smith, AR

Even though the state ranks among the top ten in the nation for its high STD and teen pregnancy rates it still does not require its public schools to provide students with the information they need to protect their sexual health. This means that the majority of students still do not understand the risks and responsibilities that come with being sexually active.

If the public schools do offer sex education classes they are abstinence based. It is not uncommon for the programs to provide students with information that is not medically accurate, and in some cases blatantly false. Students are often taught that condoms are not effective at preventing unplanned pregnancies and STDs, and that abstinence is the only proven method. Studies have not only shown conclusively that this information is false, but also that simply abstaining from all types of sexual activity will not prevent the spread of STDs.

These programs also use “shaming” techniques to stress the value of abstinence, and this has been shown to be just as detrimental to students as it is to provide them without any information. Since teens do not receive information on the importance of regular HIV testing in Fort Smith most don’t realize that the simple procedure is the only way to detect the potentially deadly disease. They also do not learn that regular Herpes testing in Fort Smith is the best way to prevent the contagious virus from continuing to spread through area high schools.

Sexually Transmitted Diseases and Demographics in Fort Smith, AR

While there are several reasons why the STD rates are rising in the city, the main one remains the lack of comprehensive and medically accurate sex education programs. Students simply do not have the information they need to protect their sexual health, and this can affect them for the rest of their lives. Some STDs can be effectively treated, while others like HIV can simply be managed.

Since teens and young adults are not familiar with many of the signs and symptoms associated with STDs, a large majority never realize that they have been infected until they have passed the disease onto others. Many simply think that they have a cold or the flu, and this is being blamed for the spike in Gonorrhea and Syphilis incidents.

The city also has strong religious and conservative beliefs that make it difficult for anyone to talk about any potential problems they may be facing regarding their sexual health. “Shaming” is a tactic that is commonly employed in sex education classes, making it difficult for teens and adults to admit that they might be infected. Since the majority of residents do not realize that STDs can be spread through various methods, most simply do not see the importance of regular testing.

Until these and other problems are resolved the city can expect to see its STD rates continue to rise.
