What are the STI test options in Kalamazoo,MI?

Many health officials say that the rapid rise of chlamydia and gonorrhea diagnoses in Kalamazoo County is due to better and more accessible testing, and probably more thorough testing than many other counties in Michigan. But let’s not celebrate until those numbers go down.

In 2015, the rates for chlamydia and gonorrhea were 823 and 249 per 100K people, and young people formed the age group with the most infected people.

Health officials blame “hook-up aps” and improper (or no) use of protection. Also many young people, due to insufficient sex education, do not use protection during anal and oral sex, which they don’t consider “real sex.” In 2017, Kalamazoo County had an HIV rate of 138 per 100K people.

But there are options available in Kalamazoo, including at least one charitable organization that offers free STD testing for HIV only. You can be tested at the Kalamazoo County Health and Community Services STD Clinic on Gull Rd or Planned Parenthood on Michigan Ave. The latter tests for all STIs and treats all but HIV. And Western Michigan University’s Sindecuse Health Center provides evaluation and treatment for all STIs.

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 Kalamazoo, MI?

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 Kalamazoo, MI?

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.

Additional STD Test Statistics in Kalamazoo, MI

Backed by several major companies in the region, this has given hope to residents that a future with four years of college and proper training for a job may be around the corner. More and more students are getting valuable education in the four STEM areas (science, technology, engineering and mathematics). A vibrant downtown with a pedestrian-friendly mall setting makes this city nice to visit year-round.

Sex education hasn’t caught up at the level of regular education, however. According to The Kalamazoo Gazette, cases soared throughout Kalamazoo at rates higher than that around the state, in the most recent set of stats that included the full 2015 calendar year.

  • Cases of chlamydia went up from an average of 1,393 per year (2005-2009) to 1,839 (2010-2014) to 2,142 (2015)
  • Cases of gonorrhea in Kalamazoo went from 568 per year (2005-2009) to 408 (2010-2014) but shot up to 648 in 2015.
  • Syphilis was much more rare, with five cases a year in the 2005-2009 time period to 19 (2010-2014) and stayed there in 2015.

Although syphilis was down in numbers, the cases of gonorrhea and chlamydia in the immediate area ranked second, only behind Detroit. It wasn’t just confined to one area, either. Eighty percent of the chlamydia cases diagnosed in 2014 were spread across seven zip codes in the city .

Sexual Health Education

STD Testing and Sexual Health Education in Kalamazoo, MI

Changing sex practices of teenagers around the metro area are largely to blame, including the use of “hook-up apps” to arrange dates with casual sex. It is well-known dating and meeting the opposite sex has changed in the recent years, but STD incidents have been a way of life in the city. The amount of poor people in the county, lack of access to health care and testing, and the presence of the Western Michigan campus were listed as main reasons why the rate soared nearly 30 percent in 2014.

When the city set out to combat rising rates, it largely ignored the college campus. The thinking was the college had its own testing facilities and equipment on staff and the students were old enough to know whether or not to pursue a sexual relationship. Task forces were formed in the county to combat the rise of chlamydia and gonorrhea in the younger set.

The end result was a scary statistic. The Kalamazoo Gazette article claimed one in 15 high school students given STD testing at two public high schools and an alternative school had evidence of a disease.

Herpes testing and HIV testing are both offered through various organizations such as Planned Parenthood and other county options such as community AIDS clinics, free STD clinics, and educational services.

Still, the question was how to combat cases of chlamydia and gonorrhea that were largely contained within the city limits and nowhere else in the county. And why were African-Americans and females largely the groups suffering the most?

Sexually Transmitted Diseases and Demographics in Kalamazoo, MI

A full one-fifth of area residents are under the age of 18, and one-third of the area residents (33.9 percent) are in poverty. The city is 68 percent white, 22 percent black/African American and 6.4 percent Hispanic.

The combination of higher poverty rates, lower per-capita income and amount of people living in poverty may contribute to higher rates of STD. With lower access to sex education prior to the middle of this decade, people may not have known how easy it would be to catch a sexually transmitted disease. The awareness factor for sexually transmitted content has increased in recent years because of these higher statistics.

The city is home to two world-class hospitals, and a well-known maker of prescription drugs also has its home base in the area. With those hospitals and a combination of government STD clinics available, access to higher-quality health care and better sexual education has become a reality in the past couple years. Free STD clinics enable you to go in for testing without fear of being outed.

Even if residents are lower-income and may not be able to afford some of the services provided, the existence of free and lower-cost programs can still get the message across to get confidential STD testing, herpes testing and HIV testing.

Better Sexual Health in Kalamazoo, MI

It was almost as if the higher STD rates in the last couple years served as a wake-up call to the area. The “Kalamazoo Promise” has raised awareness of poverty rates throughout the city and offered a chance for every student that posts good grades to get a free college education. The higher the education level, the more likely students are to know there are options for when a person is sexually active. Checkups and examinations are available, as are birth-control devices that can make life easier for someone who is active or who wants to initiate sexual relations with a boyfriend or girlfriend.

The new teaching methods recognize abstinence may not be the only option, and you can experience normal relations without fear of catching an STD.
