What are the STI test options in Monroe,LA?

The state is experiencing a rate of infection higher than the nation average. The national average sits at 478.8 per 100,000 while the state average sits at 695.2 per 100,000 residents. Chlamydia rates rose 11.9% from 2014 to 2015, and accounted for a rate that was 45.2% higher than the national average.

Gonorrhea showed a similar rise. Syphilis increased 21% in that same time span. In 2016 there were 1,151 new HIV diagnoses.

Monroe reported the following rates for 2016: 3,033 cases of chlamydia, 1,129 cases of gonorrhea, and 73 cases of primary and secondary syphilis.

To combat the growing problem various organizations and public health campaigns are working to spread education and safe practices rather than disease. State health departments offer free STD testing at certain locations during the month of April in support of STD Awareness Month. Integrated prevention services have also been implemented in the Monroe area for gay and bisexual men and transgender women.

The city of Monroe has many options: from GO CARE Medical Clinic located on North 7th Street, to the Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals on Desiard Street, and multiple locations in the surrounding areas, as well.

Reviewed by Our Medical Team
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 Monroe, LA?

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 Monroe, LA?

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.

Sexual Health Education

STD Testing and Sexual Health Education in Monroe, LA

The high rate of STD infection in the whole parish is a serious issue and a major health concern for the local health unit. Some organizations blame the state’s restrictive laws regarding sex education. Despite alarming infection numbers, the state does not require sex education and collection of sexual health behaviors among elementary and secondary students, preventing evidence-based information to be recorded and studied to improve health outcomes.

Abstinence was also the only prevention measure taught at schools for many years, which does not necessarily educate the youth on how to protect themselves. Advocating abstinence has been ineffective so far, as data shows that Ouachita Parish’s teen birth rate is 65 percent or 43.7 per 1,000 females, higher than the national rate of 26.5.

According to statistics, young adolescents and teenagers are contracting oral Herpes lesions and oral HPV due to the lack of information about the transmission of the virus. Healthcare professionals are concerned that without proper sexual health education, teens younger than 13 years old are becoming more at risk in getting STDs.

The parish started a one-year Adolescent Mapping Project to assess the strengths, limitations and weaknesses of different sectors regarding this issue. According to the data gathered by the group, herpes is one of the most common sexual issues among young people, which makes getting a routine Herpes test vital among adolescents.

A comprehensive sexual health education for schools is still underway as of 2016, but while the local government is still trying to bridge the knowledge gap, it is important to visit a testing center to better protect yourself from possible STD or HIV infections. In particular, an HIV test is crucial as it can develop into a lifelong disease if undiagnosed or not treated immediately.

According to the data collected through the Adolescent Mapping Project, adolescents face many challenges when it comes to accessing information and health care.

Social Stigma. The Ouachita Parish is still a conservative society where sexual health topics are mostly swept under the rug. A culture of silence regarding reproductive health prevents adolescents from seeking help and getting proper access to much needed healthcare.

Knowledge Gap. Most students in elementary and secondary schools do not have access to a comprehensive sexual health education. There are more questions than answers, which leads to feelings of frustration, especially when they are discouraged by adults and the system from being provided with factual and sufficient information.

Gender also affects the high STD rate. The parish has a higher female population, 55 percent female to 45 percent male, with about 76 percent of the whole population living in Monroe City.

Another factor is race or ethnicity. The rate of blacks getting infected with STDs are so much higher compared with other race/ethnicity, and in Ouachita Parish, African-Americans or African-born residents make up about 37 percent of the total population.

The lack of routine STD testing inside Louisiana parish jails is also another factor. Most inmates often go undiagnosed or untreated throughout the duration of their term. This leaves healthy inmates vulnerable to ST infection and already infected inmates can spread the virus after they complete their sentences.

The Department of Health and Hospitals has already partnered with organizations to provide STD/HIV education aimed at the youth and has opened free STD testing centers. STD screening clinics have also been integrated to local clinics across the city and the whole parish. The lack of education and information dissemination, however, as well as the disproportionate number of testing centers per infected individual across the parish and city continue to stall the progress and efforts of the local government.

Better Sexual Health in Monroe, LA

Getting an anonymous STD test can be somewhat difficult to obtain in a city like Monroe, especially if you live in the rural area of the parish. You can, however, set up an appointment with a simple phone call.

Private and public STD centers offer a wide range of testing options, including tests for oral HPV, oral Herpes lesions, HIV, Syphilis, Gonorrhea and Chlamydia. Many testing centers also cater to certain groups, such as members of the LGBT community or people from a minority race/ethnicity. Most clinics accept walk-ins, while others perform private one-on-one tests to ensure confidentiality.

For many public and free STD clinics, the results are often delivered or handed to you in two weeks due to the large number of people they serve. Private clinics, on the other hand, only takes 15 to 20 minutes for the testing and results are out in less than five days.
