What are the STI test options in Jackson,TN?

Jackson, Tennessee is the 41st most sexually diseased city in the US. In general, the South has higher STD rates for various reasons. Sex education is often lacking, and poverty rates are often higher, which results in less access to health care.

Sometimes, transportation to a clinic can be a problem for someone from a low-income area. Mobile clinics and free STD testing can help with this problem, but people often don’t suspect they are infected. The only way to make sure you are free from STIs is to get tested regularly.

In 2016, the HIV prevalence rate in Madison County was 297.7 per 100K people, just a bit above the Tennessee rate of 290.4. But the bacterial STDs are the main problems.

In 2016, Madison County’s chlamydia rate was 741.7 per 100K people, far above Tennessee’s rate of 489.4. The gonorrhea and (primary and secondary) syphilis rates were 246.9 and 11.3.

You can be tested for STIs at the Jackson-Madison County Regional Health Department on North Pkwy. There are not many STD-testing clinics in Jackson.

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 Jackson, TN?

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 Jackson, TN?

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.

STD Testing and Sexual Health Education in Jackson, TN

Sexual health education has seen a rocky history in Tennessee. There has been a lack of detail within legislation as to how to teach sexual health education within schools. Many of Tennessee’s school districts have developed and taught their own curriculum. While legislation suggests that schools emphasize abstinence outside of marriage, many schools have not enforced this. Most schools are teaching Comprehensive Sex Education or CSE. Rather than teaching abstinence, CSE focuses on methods in which to reduce the risk of pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases. In some areas, teens are taught with anatomically correct models how to engage in a variety of different types of sex.

 A newer bill known as SB1305/HB1352 implements a totally cohesive, abstinence based curriculum of sex education. It teaches medically sound information and provided students with the benefits of sustaining from non-marital sexual activity. It also provides the parents of minors the right to protest if a teacher violates this new law. This new law has been written because of Tennessee’s high STI and HIV rates. Many educators are unhappy with the new law, as they believe the language is vague pertaining to what they can and cannot teach.

Outside of the classroom, there are alternative means by which to receive sexual health information. The local health department has a location for family planning services. Located at the 804 North Parkway location, they offer women specifically education and information on STI and HIV risks. There is also the Faith Health Center, which is a nonprofit that offers health education.

Most places in Jackson charge for the purchase of condoms. A pack of twelve condoms costs about a $1 a condom. However, in Memphis, which is about a 1-½ hour drive away, there are a hundred locations at which condoms are free.  These locations are common, everyday places like coffee shops. You are free to take as many condoms as you would like.

Sexually Transmitted Diseases and Demographics in Jackson, TN

There could possibly be a correlation between the fact that the female population of Jackson is the poorest in the city and one of the group’s greatest impacted by STIs. Within that group the largest age demographic is females between the ages of 25 and 34. Single mothers seem to be poorer than women without children or family to care for. This is interesting because the graduation rate for women is greater than that for men.

The poverty rate could be a reason that women within Jackson have been more impacted by STIs than the male population.  Both White and Black Non-Hispanic women have been more impacted by Chlamydia and Gonorrhea than the men. The age group greatest impacted by STIs also falls within the age range of the poorest demographic. There are also fewer Black, Non-Hispanic women enrolled in preventative health services (5,001) as opposed to Non-Black women (501,414). This could possibly impact the fact that the percentage of Black, Non-Hispanic woman impacted is higher than the percentage of White, Non-Hispanic women.

Education percentage rates are also interesting to look at. While more Caucasian students graduated from Community and University colleges, there are more white people living below the poverty level then there are black. In elementary schools, Black students also tend to have lower proficiency results than White, Non-Hispanic and Asian students. In a study done, the youth interviewed shared that they believed the education they received did not adequately educate them on sex and STIs. In some poorer areas where the Black, Non-Hispanic population is prevalent, drug stores have their condoms locked up and there are no female condoms provided.

STI Testing Resources in Jackson, TN

There are perhaps not as many options for STI testing in Jackson as in some other cities. The primary location would be the Jackson-Madison County Regional Health Department. This is in Jackson on North Parkway. It is the main facility for the Health Department in Jackson. Their hours of operation are Monday – Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and, at times, they have extended hours on Tuesdays. It is a government run facility and offers appointments over the phone. There is also the Regional Center for Jackson, which is located on Sumnar Drive. Those needing or seeking treatment can receive it at little or no cost. All staff is trained professionally to test and provide treatment. Those planning on visiting either location are encouraged to call prior to visiting.

There are no Planned Parenthoods in Jackson Tennessee. The closest location Is 67 miles away in Memphis. This location provides online booking for appointments.

Better Sexual Health in Jackson, TN

Jackson, Tennessee is a city that provides STI education and testing, though perhaps not with availability that other cities do. Its proximity to Memphis could play a part in this as Memphis offers many resources to those affected by STIs. Education, poverty and ethnic demographics all seem to play a role in the STI statistics reflected in Jackson. The legislation affecting sexual health education could also play a part as well as a discrepancy as to what should be taught in schools. Those living in the Jackson area that believe they may be impacted by an STI or HIV are encouraged to seek out resources and receive treatment. An excellent source for those living in Jackson would be to visit the Jackson-Madison county health department. All their information is also located online and is very informative.
