What are the STI test options in Lowell,MA?

The fourth-largest city in Massachusetts recently experienced an HIV outbreak increase of 33% in 2015. Placing the rate of HIV infections at 10.5 per 100,000 people in Lowell, Massachusetts for 2016. State health officials were concerned when they noticed the decline in HIV testing for the Lowell area.

The state intends to combat this scare by encouraging health-care providers and emergency room technicians to test for HIV much more frequently. 

Chlamydia continues to be the most common STI affecting the people (especially women) of Lowell. Rates for 2016 were 298.3 per 100,000 residents. As chlamydia is often asymptomatic, it’s crucial to get tested regularly to avoid long-term damage to your reproductive health. For 2016, gonorrhea rates came in at 55.3 per 100,000 people. According to the CDC, gonorrhea is most common in younger people (15-24 years old). The rate of syphilis, primary and secondary, for Middlesex County in 2016 was 6.2 per 100,000 people. The symptoms of syphilis can be mild and go unnoticed, so again, regularly testing is recommended.

For affordable STI testing and HIV screening in your location, you can visit Lowell Community Health Center on Jackson street. They offer confidential testing to teens without requiring parental consent. They also provide some great resources and youth programs for teens to learn about sexual health. Keep your eyes peeled on community calendars in Middlesex County if you’re interested in free STD testing opportunities. April is STD awareness month, so sometimes local events may include free HIV testing during that time.

To find the best services and location for you, use our search tools below to compare location features across Lowell clinics with our easy-to-read chart.

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.

Sexual Health Education

STD Testing and Sexual Health Education in Lowell, MA

A review conducted by an undergraduate at Bridgewater State University in 2012 found that the teen birth rate was 143 percent higher in Lowell than the rest of the state. If this isn’t an indication that the lack of sexual education programs in the classroom is putting students at risk, the high number of STDs reported each year should be enough to let officials know that something needs to be done to educate and protect everyone health.

Studies have shown that cities that have sexual education programs have a significantly lower teen pregnancy rate, and few students test positive for STDs. While some law makers that oppose implementing sex education classes in the public high schools worry that this will give teens a license to engage in premarital sex, the same studies indicate that this is not the case.

What many residents and students do not understand is that not all STDs are spread solely through sexual activity. Some of these viruses can be passed through other methods, and if someone tests positive it does not necessarily mean that they are having sex. This is one of the reasons why Herpes testing in Lowell is so important, especially for teens in public high schools where the virus is usually most prevalent. Regular HIV testing in Lowell is also important for everyone, regardless of their past sexual activity.

Sexually Transmitted Diseases and Demographics in Lowell, MA

Lowell is proud of its history and diverse demographics, but this is also affecting the city  STD rates. The conservative values embraced by many residents has made it difficult for health officials to make any progress in their efforts to educate everyone about the dangers of unprotected sex, and the importance of being tested for all of the STIs at least once or twice a year.

Without the information that is readily available in other areas with lower STD rates teens, young adults and even older residents will continue to be at risk.

The conservative beliefs are strengthened by many of the areas religious leaders who are also against sexual education being brought into the school system. This refusal to even admit that there is a problem is also making it difficult for teens and young adults to find someone to talk about their sexual health.

Lower income families are also finding it difficult to afford regular testing and recent cuts to the city health care budget has forced many of the free clinics to close. Without a place to go for testing many residents actually believe that it is not that important. Other contributing factors include a reluctance to wait at the few facilities that are still open, and many residents are simply too ashamed and embarrassed to be seen at a testing center. Until this changes the city can expect the number of infections reported each to continue to rise.
