What are the STI test options in Kenosha,WI?
Right in between Chicago and Milwaukee, Kenosha is the fourth-largest city on Lake Michigan. Being as close as it is to both the Chicago Statistical Area and the Milwaukee metropolitan area, residents never have far to go to find anything an American would want. Including sexually transmitted diseases, unfortunately.
According to the Healthy Chicago HIV/STI Surveillance Report 2018, new cases of chlamydia and gonorrhea totaled nearly 42,000 for a ten-year high. Good news though, HIV diagnosis is at its lowest since 1990. In Milwaukee, according to Angela Hagy—Director of Disease Control and Environmental Health for the City of Milwaukee Health Department—there has been a 13% increase in HIV compared to 2016, a 29% increase in syphilis, a 12% increase in gonorrhea, and only a 0.5% hike in chlamydia.
Kenosha, right in the middle, manages to dodge the majority of that, but still finds its numbers far too high for a city of its size.
At a total of 690 STD cases per 100,000 residents, it’s higher than the national average but at 1,000 cases per 100,000 less than Milwaukee, and 600 less than Chicago, Kenosha is fighting back.
Mostly through frequent testing. With a Planned Parenthood on 63rd Street and an AIDS resource center off the 32, you too can do your part to keep Kenosha healthy.
Some facilities offer free STD testing (for eligible patients) and can have your results in as little as 1-2 days.
