What are the STI test options in Guilderland, NY?

Named for the Gelderland province of the Netherlands from which its earliest settlers hailed, Guilderland, NY rests on the central northwest border of Albany County. Like the vast majority of the country, this small city has seen an upward swing in STDs in recent years. However, unlike the rest of the US, Guilderland has recently seen a reduction in the HIV prevalence rate.

While the HIV rate of this small community is still nearly double the state prevalence rate, during the period from 2013 to 2017 it saw a 5% reduction. During this same period, the STD prevalence rate for Guilderland rose by 11%. While this rate remains lower than the state and national averages, it is on the rise.

In fact, the upward swing in chlamydia prevalence rates in Guilderland grew by nearly 63% during the same 5 year period. This growth was more than double that of the state of New York as a whole.

“As a small community, proper screening and notification of STDs is the key to preventing a health crisis and keeping prevalence rates from climbing in Guilderland.” 

Those living in the Guilderland area who are seeking STD testing have a number of options from which to choose. Planned Parenthood’s Albany Health Center provides members of Albany County — which includes Guilderland — STD and HIV testing, diagnosis, and treatment services.

In addition, the Albany County Department of Health (ACDOH) offers an STD clinic at its Guilderland location. There are also a number of urgent care centers in the area that offer STD testing. 

Some clinics may offer free STD testing. However, it is important to remember that these free services are often only for certain tests and may have certain requirements that need to be met to qualify.
