What are the STI test options in Harlingen,TX?

Harlingen lies in the Rio Grande Valley—as its 4th largest city, in fact. Harlingen is also the 2nd largest city in Cameron County. They do say everything is bigger in Texas, but health officials for Cameron County would prefer to keep rates of sexually transmitted diseases on the smaller side. There were 795 new HIV cases in 2015 in the Harlingen area. That’s a prevalence rate of 244 per 100,000 people. If you’re at risk for contracting HIV, talk to your doctor about PrEP.

Being a larger city, it makes sense that Cameron County reported more chlamydia cases than surrounding counties. With 1,782 new diagnoses of the most common bacterial infection in the United States, putting their rate at 423.9 per 100K.

The rate of gonorrhea in Cameron for 2017 was 66.6 per 100,000, the highest rate the area has seen since 2013. For primary and secondary syphilis, the rate matched those from 2012 and 2013 at 0.5 per 100K. 

If you are in Harlingen and looking to get tested, you have affordable options near you. Walk-ins are welcome at Westbrook Clinic on Camelot Plaza, but appointments are recommended to avoid long wait times. They offer STD/HIV testing, but you may need to sign up as a new patient first. They also provide free condoms and safer sex kits. Another option is the Planned Parenthood on Sunshine Strip. They test for the following STIs: chlamydia, gonorrhea, genital warts, herpes, trichomoniasis, HIV (testing only), bacterial vaginosis (BV), and syphilis. To see if you’re eligible for free STD testing contact the Harlingen Public Health Center.

Reviewed by Our Medical Team
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 Harlingen, TX?

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 Harlingen, TX?

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 Harlingen, TX

The small city of Harlingen is facing the same problem as the rest of the state, with an alarming number of new STD cases reported every year. The city’s independent school district does have a sex education program that is aimed at teaching students the benefits of abstinence, but it does not handle the more pressing issues that deal with safe sexual practices and regular testing. Without this information being made available for teenager and young adults, the city will continue to face this mounting health crisis.

What the education programs in the school system are not teaching students is that sexually transmitted diseases can be contracted through other means, and not all display easily recognizable symptoms immediately. Herpes testing in Harlingen can help detect this viral infection which can be easily spread without sexual contact. HIV tests in Harlingen are also important for residents of any age, and this simple and easy procedure can help save your life and protect the health of everyone around you.

Sexually Transmitted Diseases and Demographics in Harlingen, TX

STD Testing Harlingen, TX

With its close proximity to Mexico the city of Harlingen has a strong Hispanic influence that is also reflected in its demographical makeup, and is affecting the STD rate. Language barriers between health care workers and the city’s many Spanish speaking residents can make it difficult to communicate the importance of regular testing. Poor economics and lower than average health care are also causing STD rates to rise, especially among Hispanic teens.

While these factors are contributing to the high STD rates in the region, the main problem remains the city’s lack of sexual education. Until residents learn how to protect themselves from sexually transmitted diseases, and understand the importance of regular checkups these STDs will continue to spread and affect the entire community.

Better Sexual Health in Harlingen, TX

The importance of regular testing cannot be emphasized enough, especially for residents of this picturesque community. Located in the Rio Grande Valley, this small city has plenty to offer residents and visitors which should not include a high rate of sexually transmitted diseases. While the school system continues to follow the state’s example and teach abstinence based curriculum, there are ways that residents can protect their sexual health.

Regular tests and wellness checkups can prevent the spread of these diseases, along with protecting your sexual health. While some residents might put off testing out of fear of embarrassment or simply to avoid the long lines, it is now possible to schedule a private  STD testing in Harlingen. With one simple phone call residents of the Rio Grande Valley can spend a few minutes in the local lab without fear of running into any friends or neighbors, and still have plenty of time to enjoy all of the unique things to do in this historic southwestern city.
