What are the STI test options in Greater Newark,DE?

Delaware has some of the highest STD rates in the US. Health officials blame online dating apps, which allow people to meet people they don’t know well for sex. Two-thirds of the state’s chlamydia cases involve young people under 30.

Because many forms of birth control are widely available and because the AIDS scare has abated, use of condoms has sharply decreased over the past decade. Health officials stress that sexually active people must still use condoms and must be tested regularly, as most STIs are asymptomatic, especially in the early stages.

In 2016, the HIV prevalence rate in New Castle County was 430.6 per 100K people, above Delaware’s rate of 395.7. That same year, the county’s chlamydia rate was 571.4. The gonorrhea and (primary and secondary) syphilis rates were 151.5 and 6.6.

Newark has a few STD-testing clinics, and there are even more in Wilmington and the surrounding areas. There’s a Planned Parenthood on Delaware Ave. They test for STIs and treat all except HIV, and the fee is on a sliding scale.

There is free STD testing available in the area for students only. AIDS Delaware offers HIV testing. Check their schedule for times and locations.

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 Greater Newark, DE?

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 Greater Newark, DE?

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 Greater Newark, DE

Health classes in Delaware can begin sexual health education in sixth grade. Education should continue in the home. So says Susan Hoffman, president of the Delaware School Nurses Association. It’s important for parents to be open with their children about sexual health.

It should be a team approach. It should include the school and home.

Delaware state law requires sexuality education. Local school boards decide the grade level in which topics are introduced. Teaching about abstinence and contraceptives, such as condoms, the Pill, or the Patch, is required. Delaware state law also requires STDs and HIV/AIDS education.

Abstinence must be taught as the only completely effective protection against unplanned pregnancy, STDs, and HIV/AIDS when transmitted sexually. You do not need your parents’ permission to participate in sexuality education or HIV/AIDS education classes.

Anyone 12 years old or older does not need permission from a parent or guardian to get tested for STDs and HIV in your state. A physician could discuss tests with parents but this is not required. If you want to make sure your visit is confidential, tell the clinic staff how to contact you about test results and future appointments without your parents knowing.

Sexually Transmitted Diseases and Demographics in Greater Newark, DE

Demographics play a role in STD rates in the city and area. Those who are 15 to 24 years old are the demographic for men and women that shows the highest numbers and rates of chlamydia and gonorrhea. About half of all new STD diagnoses are among young people.  In an attempt to analyze the college demographic as related to STD we see a report that 45% of college freshmen who have been binge drinking.

The report continues that those under the influence of alcohol failed to consider the usage of contraceptive aids when engaging in sexual intercourse. We also see a report that with the college demographic, 87% of men know how to use a condom correctly.

For women 60% know how to use a condom correctly, and 60% say they would still have sex even if their partner refused to wear a condom. Compared with older adults, sexually active people ages 15 to 24 are at higher risk of getting an STD.

We should consider however that the Center for Disease Control notes increases in senior citizen population STDs. Since 2007, incidence of syphilis among seniors is up by 52 percent.

Chlamydia is up 32 percent. Senior citizens are sexually active and practicing unprotected sex. Since pregnancy is not an issue, seniors could feel that unprotected sex is an option. They need the same information young people get.

STI Testing Resources in Greater Newark, DE

There are options for STI testing in your area. Public health provides free STD testing at school-based health centers, juvenile detention centers, community-based health clinics and at state facilities. In one year this staff can perform over 65,000 free tests. That number does not include tests performed by private health care providers.

Delaware has growth with new clinics coming to the community to fill in the gaps and to bring sexual, reproductive health services to more people. Increased testing brings about an increased number of cases identified. Some people do not realize that if both you and your partner are not treated at the same time, it’s possible to get the infection again. Delaware tries to make sure testing is available as much as possible.

Planned Parenthood/Newark DE Health Center is an example of a place that can help you with STD education, testing, and treatment. The staff is trained to help you with your situation and a Planned Parenthood facility offers STD testing, diagnosis, and treatment including chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis.

Additionally, the center provides testing and diagnosis for HIV and testing, diagnosis, and treatment for bacterial vaginosis, genital warts, herpes, and trichomoniasis. STD prevention services include condoms, HPV (Gardasil) vaccines, hepatitis B vaccines, and STD/safer sex education. The facility tests for gonorrhea and chlamydia using a urine sample. If this test shows an infection, then you will get treatment and an explanation of how your partner can be treated.

This health center supports and welcomes clients regardless of the gender, sexual orientation, and sex. This includes lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, and intersex clients as stated on their web site. Services are provided in a professional and respectful manner.

Consider also that you could go to an urgent care center. One of the less talked about but highly used services of such a center is STD testing. Whether testing for Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, Herpes, HIV, or Syphilis, these STD screenings you can use to help you.  You can find online reviews about these centers to help you decide to use one including a service in your city.
