Additional STD Test Statistics in Montgomery, AL

STDs are on the rise in Montgomery (county and city), and have been for years. It has one of the highest rates of infection in the nation, and it’s shocking to learn that some larger cities are actually ranked lower for reported numbers of STDs.

While officials weren’t particularly surprised to see that Chlamydia and Gonorrhea rates are still increasing, they were alarmed to learn that the number of middle age men who tested positive for primary and secondary Syphilis is also growing. What is even more alarming it that it is no longer uncommon for adults to test positive for more than one STD at a time.

  • In 2014 there were 16 new reports of  Syphilis.
  • The number of Chlamydia incidents was down from 2,922 in 2012 to 2,774 in 2014, health officials warn that these rates are expected to increase in 2015.
  • 938 new cases of Gonorrhea reported in 2014.

STD Testing and Sexual Health Education in Montgomery, AL

Even though Montgomery is seeing a slight decrease in the number of reported STDs, it is still important to educate residents about the dangers of sexually transmitted disease.

Currently the city and the state follow the abstinence only guidelines and while the basics of the human reproductive system and puberty are covered, almost nothing is discussed regarding the spread of STDs. Adding to the problem is parents unwillingness to talk about sex with their children or even let them participate in the limited health classes.

Regular Herpes testing in Montgomery can help stop the viral disease. Regular HIV testing in Montgomery is also critical for your continued good health.

Sexually Transmitted Diseases and Demographics in Montgomery, AL

Health officials often find it difficult to reach all of the city’s residents and explain the importance of regular STD testing. Many of the lower income neighborhoods have a deep mistrust of officials, and a simple lack of being able to afford regular testing has many residents hoping to avoid the problem.

A lack of community health care centers can make it difficult and even inconvenient to get tested regularly and the city’s conservative values is hampering efforts to open new clinics.

Intravenous drug users have increased in numbers, which always causes STD rates to rise. Statistics show that the increase in illicit drug is playing a large role in the city’s high STD rates, especially among middle age Caucasian males who are often testing positive for Syphilis and other STDs.

Other demographical issues causing the city’s STD rates to soar include the shame and embarrassment many teens and adults feel when they think that they might have contracted an STD. Cultural and religious beliefs that frown on sex before marriage can make it difficult for teens to discuss their sexual activities with their parents or another responsible adult.
