What are the STI test options in Katy,TX?

Katy, Texas, is part of the Houston metropolitan area, which has rather high STD rates, but not the highest in Texas. Though mostly in Harris County, the zip codes registered to Katy had lower HIV prevalence rates in 2016, ranging from 129 to 421 per 100K people, than most zip codes in Houston.

Still, health officials worry that there are a lot of people out there who don’t yet know they’re infected, and who could be unintentionally infecting others. Underprivileged people, especially, are at risk because of limited access to health care and, possibly, lack of health awareness.

There were 26,585 chlamydia cases in Harris County in 2017, at a rate of 571.4 per 100K people. That’s a bit higher than the Texas rate of 511.6. The gonorrhea and syphilis rates were 182.1 and 59.3.

Obviously, the syphilis rate is high for a disease that medical professionals had, a few short years ago, thought was on its way out. Texas’s rate was also high, at 40.6.

Katy has a few STD-testing clinics, and there are even more options in Houston (it may be easier to find free STD testing in the larger city). RediClinic Katy, on Fry Rd, offers screening for chlamydia and gonorrhea.

Advanced Women’s Wellness, on Provincial Blvd, provides STI testing and treatment. The Spring Branch Community Health Center, on 1st St, and Preferred Urgent Care, on West Grand Parkway, also do STI screening.
