What are the STI test options in Nashua,NH?
New Hampshire has some of the lowest STD rates in the US, but Nashua health officials are worried about gonorrhea, which is increasing. There were more cases in 2016 alone than there were in the years from 2007 to 2013 combined, an increase of over 250%.
The problem with gonorrhea is that there is only one medicine left that can treat it, and the disease is becoming resistant to the antibiotic. Now, the focus must be on prevention. Health officials urge all sexually active people to use protection every time and get tested often, even if they are not experiencing symptoms.
In 2016, Hillsborough County had an HIV prevalence rate of 146.2 per 100K people, above New Hampshire’s rate of 101.5. The same year, Hillsborough County had a chlamydia rate of 307.9 per 100K people, in comparison to the state rate of 260.6. The gonorrhea and (primary and secondary) syphilis rates were 60.7 and 3.9.
