Syphilis increased to a rate of 9.9 per 100,000 residents, which doesn’t seem very high but is alarming for a disease that was almost eradicated two decades ago.

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 Lafayette, LA?

STD Testing and Sexual Health Education in Lafayette, LA

In response to the high STD rate across the state, some law makers have proposed updating the current curriculum being taught in the sexual education classes. Currently students are only taught about HIV prevention and abstinence, with all information regarding STDs and the various ways the viruses can be spread left out of the curriculum.

While the law makers advocating the changes are correct in their hopes that this will help lower STD rates, the majority still opposes the addition of any new information. This has left students in the Acadiana area without the necessary tools and information they need to protect themselves from all sexually transmitted diseases.

Abstinence will help lower the teen pregnancy rate, but it is not effective at stopping the spread of all STDs. Some can be easily spread through casual contact, which explains why the Herpes virus is so prevalent in area high schools. Other sexually transmitted diseases don’t always display signs and symptoms, which can lead to the unknowing spread of the STD. Until students have access to all of the information, the STD rates will continue to climb.

This is why regular Herpes testing in Lafayette is so important, especially if you want to stop the spread of the disease in area schools. Regular HIV testing in Lafayette is also vital, and this information is included in the local sexual education classes.

Sexually Transmitted Diseases and Demographics in Lafayette, LA

The fourth largest city in the state, you would expect it to have a diverse population, and this is certainly true in the heart of Acadiana. The majority of the residents in this unique area are mainly French Creole, Acadian or Cajun, and there is also a large African American and Caucasian presence in the area.

Residents also have strong conservative beliefs that are making it difficult for area school boards to implement comprehensive sexual education programs. Many teens and young adults have no way to get the information they need to protect themselves from STDs. Condoms are not readily available, and many younger residents are too embarrassed to ask for it.

The culture is also oriented more toward males, who are expected to never show any weakness. With the preconceived notion that STD testing is only for those who are “dumb enough” to contract a venereal disease, many residents will go their entire lives without ever being checked for a sexually transmitted infection. Until these myths and misconceptions are changed, this historic city will continue to deal with a high STD rate.

Better Sexual Health in Lafayette, LA

Before you go digging for crawfish or crack open a plate of oysters, make an appointment for STI testing. Mobile std testing and HIV centers can’t give you the privacy you need, unlike STD clinics. Your results are fast and anonymous, and no one ever needs to know why you’re at the lab.
