What are the STI test options in Iowa City,IA?

Iowa City and Johnson County have higher STD rates than the surrounding areas. This could be due to its status as a college town, or simply urban population density.

In 2015, there were 153 people living with HIV or AIDS in Johnson County. In 2017, there were 1,017 chlamydia cases, at a rate of 694 per 100K people; the Iowa rate was 443. Health officials say that 22% of Iowa’s chlamydia cases are teens, most of them female.

Johnson County’s 2017 gonorrhea rate was 120, just over Iowa’s rate of 100. University of Iowa students are involved in community STI awareness, surveying the state’s sex ed programs in schools and handing out condoms.

There are a few STD-testing clinics in Iowa City. You may qualify for free STD testing at the city clinics if you can provide proof that you cannot pay (there may be a wait there). Planned Parenthood is located on Orchard St. They test for STIs and treat all of them except for HIV, for a small fee depending on your income.

The Emma Goldman Clinic on Dubuque St screens for STIs and offers a teen clinic as well.

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 Iowa City, IA?

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 Iowa City, IA?

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 Iowa City, IA

Recent reports show that 34% of Iowa high school students are sexually active. Since it is clear the local teens are engaged in sexual activity, it is critical that they receive reliable information about sexual health. Teens need to know how to prevent STDs, HIV and unwanted pregancy. Safe sex and contraception use are two ways to reduce these risks.  

According to the Guttmacher Institute, an organization committed to advancing sexual health rights, Iowa is one of 24 states in the United States that mandates sexual education programs. Sexual education and HIV education is required, and when it is taught, sexual education must be medically accurate and age appropriate. Iowa law states that parents must be provided notice of sexual education programs and given the ability to opt-out.

A survey by The Gazette found that sexual education programs in Eastern Iowa schools often vary widely. Some programs are comprehensive, while others provide minimal information. Topics may also vary between schools without consistent coverage of STD prevention. This trend is common throughout the United States. Without comprehensive standards at the state and federal levels, these programs are often inconsistent and reflect local decisions about how to cover these topics. However, reliable and consistent information is very important.

Students in Iowa City attend public schools run by the  Iowa City Community School District. There are two high schools in the district including Iowa City High School and Iowa City West High School. Although few details are provided by the board of education, health education programs are included in the curriculum at these schools.
