What are the STI test options in Hoboken,NJ?
In 2015, there were 5,032 people living with HIV or AIDS in Hudson County, with a prevalence rate of 885 per 100K people, nearly twice New Jersey’s rate of 474. Though the rate had gone down from 2010, health officials are worried about people out there who still don’t know they are infected.
HIV and other STIs are mostly asymptomatic in the early stages, and the only way to know your sexual health status is to be tested regularly. HIV-positive individuals can be started on PEP, which will suppress the viral load and make the virus less likely to be passed on to others.
In 2016, Hudson County had 3,022 chlamydia cases, at a rate of 446.3 per 100K people, above New Jersey’s rate of 385.3. The gonorrhea and (primary and secondary) syphilis rates were 105.2 and 15.3.
