What are the STI test options in Fort Wayne,IN?
While the city and surrounding area may have a lower than average rate of sexually transmitted diseases, this doesn’t mean that it will stay that way. Unfortunately, health officials state that the STD problem is nationwide, so even a lower ranking doesn’t mean an area is exempt from this problem of spreading infections.
In 2016 there were a reported 483 cases of HIV, 146 cases of Hepatitis C, 146 cases of Hepatitis B, 18 cases of Hepatitis A, 326 cases of syphilis, 30,847 cases of chlamydia, and 9,451 cases of gonorrhea across the state. In 2017 444 cases of HIV and 103 cases of AIDS were reported, for a total count of 547 cases.
Awareness efforts include World AIDS Day on December 1st, National HIV Testing Day on June 27th, and STD Awareness Month in April.
Increased education, counseling services for those who test positive, and increasing preventative and safer sex practices are all part of the effort to reduce the STD epidemic. Free STD testing is another method they are using to boost awareness but doctors are not always around if you have questions.
Throughout the Fort Wayne area there are many options, from the Positive Resource Connection on Oxford Street to the Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky Incorporated on West Jefferson Boulevard. Fort Wayne-Allen County Department of Health offers testing services at their location on New Haven Avenue.
