What are the STI test options in Grand Prairie,TX?
As part of the Dallas-Fort Worth area, Grand Prairie shares that regions STD problems to some extent. In 2010 and for a number of years, Dallas County had the highest HIV rates in Texas. In Grand Prairie, 34 people were diagnosed with HIV and 15 with AIDS in 2017.
Insufficient sex education continues to be a problem in Texas. Plus, social stigma often holds people back from getting proper care, and this leads to late diagnosis, when infections have caused complications and are harder to treat. Some lawmakers are pushing for medically accurate sex education in schools.
Also in 2017, 1,140 people were diagnosed with chlamydia, 364 with gonorrhea, and 16 with primary and secondary syphilis in Grand Prairie.
There are only a few STD-testing clinics in Grand Prairie, but there are more options if you can get to Dallas (and you might have better luck finding free STD testing in the larger city). The CVS MinuteClinic on South Carrier Parkway does basic STI testing. If you can get to Arlington or Bedford, Planned Parenthood tests for STIs and treats all of them except HIV at a low cost.
