What are the STI test options in Louisville,KY?
Louisville is ranked as one of the 15 highest ranked cities with new HIV diagnoses in the United States.
HIV is not the only STD one might contract in Louisville; Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, and Syphilis are prevalent, as well, with a rate of newly diagnosed Chlamydia cases at 676 new cases per 100,000 people in Jefferson County. This number is higher than much of the rest of the state.
You can easily find testing options throughout downtown Louisville, and the metro area.
Some public options include Planned Parenthood on 7th Street and the Public Health Department at 400 Gray Street. One of the advantages of the Gray St. location is the large parking lot. Their hours are sometimes limited, but you can always call ahead.
What makes the location on Gray St. even more appealing are the various events held down the street that even includes a farmer’s market during the spring and fall harvest seasons.
Many private clinics are available, as well, including on Eastern Parkway and Shelbyville Road. There’s a center especially for teens on West Broadway, as well.
Some residents are putting off the simple check-up due to financial difficulties. This is why you can also find free STD testing at some locations around the city though you may have to show proof of income.
