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.

Additional STD Test Statistics in Fort Wayne, IN

STD rates for the city of Fort Wayne and surrounding Allen County are up, and the numbers indicate that the percentage of residents who test positive are only expected to rise.

Between 2014 and 2015, Chlamydia, Gonorrhea and Syphilis increased an estimated 20 percent, and these infections are not only limited to teens and young adults. Statistics show that older men are also at risk, with a noticeable increase in the number of positive Syphilis diagnoses in males over the age of 45.

These same statistics for 2014 to 2015 also show that the number of new cases of HIV/AIDS is also on the rise, with an estimated 30 new diagnoses in the 12 month period. While the majority of these new cases are attributed to residents engaging in risky behavior, the recent statistics do show that until everyone understands the importance of regular testing the city can expect its STD rates to continue to rise.

  • Between 2011 and 2012 Gonorrhea rates rose 1.6 percent per 100,000 residents.
  • While Chlamydia rates decreased 4.7 percent in Allen County between 2011 and 2012, these numbers have dramatically increased in 2014 and 2015.
  • 2014 to 2015 reported STDs in the city rose an alarming 20 percent.

STD Testing and Sexual Health Education in Fort Wayne, IN

With STD rates rising at an alarming rate throughout the city, health officials feel that it is time to make a change in the current sexual education program used in the public schools.

Currently Fort Wayne public school system follows the state curriculum which focuses on some of the common changes that occur during puberty while promoting abstinence. The program does deal with the changes teenagers’ bodies go through during puberty, along with the often confusing emotions. While this might help to explain to students why these changes are occurring, it does not help them protect themselves against sexually transmitted diseases.

Many students do not realize that not all STDs are transmitted solely through intercourse, and that some infectious viruses can be spread by casual contact. While this does help to explain the high rate of Herpes diagnoses in teens and young adults, it does nothing to slow the spread of the virus.

Regular Herpes testing in Fort Wayne can help prevent the spread of the disease, along with the embarrassing flare ups. Regular HIV testing in Fort Wayne is also vital for continued good health, and the simple exam can potentially save your life.

Sexually Transmitted Diseases and Demographics in Fort Wayne, IN

Demographics play a large role in STD rates, and this is true for Fort Wayne and Allen County. Not only do social and economic factors affect STD percentages, but also age and gender.

Health officials are also beginning to realize that technology might be responsible for the rising STD rates, especially among teens and young adults. Social media websites are making it even easier than ever to find people to “hook up with”, and with more teens and young adults engaging in casual sex it’s not surprising STD rates are on the rise. Without comprehensive sexual education programs in the public schools, many students don’t even realize that they are engaging in risky behaviors.

Lower income neighborhoods in the city are also being affected by the high STD rates, and the lack of community testing centers is making it difficult for residents to get regular health checkups. It is also not uncommon for lower income families to not be able to afford regular testing, which is only contributing to the problem.

Some cultural and religious beliefs can make it difficult for teens and adults to admit that they are sexually active or that they might need to be tested. Shame and embarrassment over contracting a sexually transmitted disease can also prevent some residents from getting the treatment that they need.
