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.

Additional STD Test Statistics in Greater Newark, DE

Chlamydia is most reported STD in Delaware. It is the most reported STD in the country as well.

Chlamydia rates in Delaware have been ranked in the top 20 in the country since 2009. In 2014 for every resident, about 478 tested positive for chlamydia for every 100,000 people. Officials say the high numbers for STDs is in part due to inconsistent or lack of condom use. It is also due to better screening.

The CDC found that based on 2014 data, youth are still at the highest risk of acquiring an STD, especially chlamydia or gonorrhea. In the most recent High School Youth Risk Behavior Survey in Delaware, 36 percent of the high schoolers reported they did not use a condom during their last sexual interaction.The survey showed that about six percent had sex before the age of 13. With the University of Delaware in the city you should be aware of additional statistics related to STDs on a college campus.

Statistics show that one in four college students has an STD. We see a report that notes about 54 percent of students regularly use condoms during vaginal intercourse, 29 percent during anal intercourse, and 4 percent during oral sex.

This could account for why STD levels are so high among students. Overall, the CDC estimates that 19 million new STIs occur each year, almost half among 15- to 24-year-olds.

College is a time when many young people can choose to engage in potentially unsafe sexual situations. Perhaps that is why STD rates are so much higher among teens and young adults than other age groups. These are important statistics and considerations to keep in mind.

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.
