What are the STI test options in Irving,TX?
Antibiotic-resistant gonorrhea cases are on the rise and this could start to affect city residents off all ages. However it is important to note that by Texas law, minors require parental consent for STD testing.
Concerned organizations and citizens continue to lobby for the measures that will help end the STD epidemic: greater funding, reduction of stigma, and the implementation of PrEP clinics. Services offered include free condoms and educational services to help combat the STD problem.
Those affected with STDs may not even know, as many are asymptomatic. Early detection and proper treatment remain the only way to properly avoid long-term side effects and health problems.
In 2016 there were 4,464 cases of HIV, 40 cases of Hepatitis C, 156 cases of Hepatitis B, 139 cases of Hepatitis A, 1,955 cases of syphilis, 142,952 cases of chlamydia, and 42,472 cases of gonorrhea. Continued efforts are required to keep rates declining.
Don’t wait for the onset of symptoms to seek out medical assistance. Testing and information are the first and most vital step to maintaining a long and healthy life, free of STDs and their long-term effects.

IF you are willing to possibly wait with others some clinics have free STD testing.
