What are the STI test options in Kennesaw,GA?
As with any college town, it’s a busy city – but it also means regular STD testing takes on a special importance here. Young people make up an overwhelming proportion of STD statistics in the city.
The state ranks in the top five states for the highest rates of the most common STDs reported nationwide.
The most commonly reported STD cases are: syphilis, chlamydia, and gonorrhea. Per 100,000 people, the state has 614.6 cases of chlamydia, 201.2 cases of gonorrhea, and 13.2 cases of syphilis. This means that there are approximately 61,500 people affected by chlamydia, 20,100 people affected by gonorrhea, and 1,200 people affected by syphilis across the state of Georgia every year.
Although these diseases are treatable, the crucial factor in avoiding long-term side effects and significant health problems lies in early detection and proper care. To assist with these goals there are sliding scale fees at many locations for testing and events held during STD awareness month – which is April – throughout the county. In some cases free STD testing is available but you may have to meet specific requirements.
Public and private std testing sites include the Georgia Department of Public Health with locations on Acworth Industrial Drive and the Cobb and Douglas County Community Services Board on North Marietta Parkway, both within a 10 mile radius of Kennesaw.
