What are the STI test options in McAllen,TX?

Over 75,000 residents are affected by the three most common STDs – gonorrhea, chlamydia, and syphilis – every year. McAllen reported 595 cases of chlamydia, 96 cases of gonorrhea, and 1 case of primary and secondary syphilis in 2017. Although many STDs witnessed a decline from the previous year, preventative and treatment efforts need to continue to continue increasing the health of the population.

Hidalgo County ranks within the top 20 counties in Texas for STD prevalence among these three STD categories, as well.

Some locations offer instant testing; however, instant tests provide only preliminary results. Positive indicators require further testing to verify positive diagnosis, while negative results tend to be reliable upon first testing. Many locations also offer free STD testing, condoms, education, and treatment. Minors require parental consent for testing.

In McAllen you can find testing services at the Hidalgo County Health and Human Services facility located on East Hackberry, or at the University of Texas Medical Branch on South Broadway. There’s also the Valley AIDS Council on South 2nd Street and Access Esperanza Clinics Incorporated on East Hackberry Avenue. Many locations offer services in English and Spanish.

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 McAllen, TX?

Some STD testing clinics offer same-day walk-in options without an appointment. Below are nearby preferred locations that offer this option.

How much will STD testing cost in McAllen, TX?

The cost of STD testing depends on whether you select private, public, or at-home testing, as well as the type of test(s) you need.

Several at-home STD options and public testing locations can cost up to $250, with most on the higher end, depending on the brand and type of testing. Public testing fees also vary based on income and welfare eligibility. 

With private testing, you may save money on a low-cost comprehensive 10-test panel that tests for the most common bacterial and viral STDs in the United States. 

SaferSTD has researched and identified reputable locations that offer upfront pricing without hidden fees. Click here to find a preferred location near you.

STD Testing and Sexual Health Education in McAllen, TX

STD Testing McAllen, TX

While the city does have the largest independent school system in the valley, it still does not have an adequate sexual education program. Following the curriculum recommended and funded by the state, the city’s school system relies on the abstinence program to help prevent the spread of STDs and limit the number of unplanned teen pregnancies. While even educators admit that this is not enough, they also suggest that it is up to the parents to inform their children about the importance of regular STD testing. A few of the city’s health centers do offer guidance and free condoms.

One of the reasons that the STD statistics are so high for this southwestern city is the lack of regular testing, and the knowledge that not all sexually transmitted diseases can be prevented by just by practicing abstinence. Regular HIV testing in McAllen is the only way to accurately diagnose this disease, and early detection can be instrumental in preventing the infection from turning into AIDS. Herpes testing in McAllen is also important to stop the virus from spreading.

Sexually Transmitted Diseases and Demographics in McAllen, TX

The demographics in the city will affect the STD rates, and there are several factors that should be considered. Cultural differences and below average income levels, along with a high crime rate in some barrios can make it difficult for city health officials to inform residents about the importance of regular testing. Lower income families often cannot afford the tests, and the heavy Spanish speaking citizens often experience difficulties with language barriers. While all of this does affect the STD rate, the lack of education remains the largest contributing factor.

Better Sexual Health in McAllen, TX

STD Testing McAllen, TX
