What are the STI test options in Newton,MA?

The eleventh-largest city in Massachusetts recently experienced an HIV outbreak increase of 33% in 2015. By 2016 the rate of HIV infections was at 10.5 per 100,000 people in Newton, Massachusetts. Naturally, Middlesex County health officials were concerned when they noticed the decline in HIV testing for the Newton area.

One of their plans to combat this potential issue is to encourage health-care providers and emergency room technicians to test for HIV more frequently.

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. Still, the most common STI affecting the people (especially women) of Newton is chlamydia. In 2016, rates of new cases were 298.3 per 100,000 people. As chlamydia is often asymptomatic, it’s crucial to get tested regularly to avoid long-term damage to your reproductive health. That same year, gonorrhea rates came in at 55.3 per 100K people. Gonorrhea is most common in younger people (15-24 years old) according to the CDC. 

If you’re in Newton and need to get screened for STIs, check out these affordable options. There’s a MinuteClinic inside CVS on Boylston Street. They test for hepatitis C and take walk-ins but be prepared for longer wait times. Or, there’s a Partners Urgent Care offering STD testing on Needham Street. If you qualify for their free STD testing (HIV and others), you can drive over to AIDS Action Committee of Massachusetts in Roxbury.

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

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.

What same-day testing locations are available in Newton, MA?

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 Newton, MA?

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.

Additional STD Test Statistics in Newton, MA

The CDC and Middlesex County Health Department recently released statistics showing that STD rates are rising in Boston and its suburbs. This includes Newton, and these statistics surprised many of the area’s residents. Over the past twenty years the number of sexually transmitted diseases reported in the suburb and county have been steadily rising, and this means that everyone’s sexual health is potentially at risk.

The area has one of the highest rates for Chlamydia infections in the state, and this is also true for Gonorrhea. The number of reported Syphilis incidents in adults ages 25 to 29 is increasing, but the statistics also indicate that they are decreasing in teens. When it comes to HIV/AIDS and the number of new cases reported each year the statistics show that these rates are remaining basically unchanged. They might not be decreasing, but they’re also not rising and this is good news for residents.

Women ages 15 to 24 accounted for the majority of Chlamydia incidents reported each year, while men have the highest risk for contracting Gonorrhea. Males 25 to 29 years old test positive for Syphilis more often than men in other age brackets. Even though it may seem like the infectious Syphilis rate is decreasing, it is important to note that it is actually rising in women by one or two cases each year.

Some of the other statistics that highlight the growing STD problem in the area include,

  • The Syphilis rate for women increased from 0.6 per 100,000 in 2005 to 1.5 per 100,000 in 2014.
  • In 2014 the greater metro area was ranked among the top 5 for its high Gonorrhea rate.
  • The city reported one of the highest Chlamydia rates in the state in 2014.

Sexual Health Education

STD Testing and Sexual Health Education in Newton, MA

In 2015 state lawmakers passed a bill that now requires all public school systems to teach medically accurate and age appropriate sex education classes, if they offer the program. Abstinence based curriculum is no longer allowed to be used since it has proven to be ineffective at lowering teen pregnancy and STD rates.

While this is a positive first step, many educators and health officials do not believe that it goes far enough since it does not require public schools to provide sex education classes. This means that districts that do not approve of the new curriculum simply don’t have to offer sex education to their students.

Unfortunately some school districts are deciding to drop their limit sex education programs in wake of the new requirements. This means that many students won’t have access to the information they need to protect their sexual health. It is not uncommon for teens to graduate not understanding the importance of always using protection, and the majority won’t be aware of the risks and responsibilities that come with being sexually active.

Students and adults are taught that regular HIV testing in Newton is an important part of any health care routine or that the simple procedure could potentially save their lives. The same is also true regarding regular Herpes testing in Newton, even though it is the best way to prevent this infectious virus in area high schools.

Sexually Transmitted Diseases and Demographics in Newton, MA

One of the main factors that are causing the STD rates to rise in this bedroom community is the lack of sex education programs in the public schools. Teens are often graduating not understanding how sexually transmitted diseases can be spread, and most do not realize how important it is to visit a nearby STI clinic on a regular basis. This lack of available information is also affecting the STD rates in adults.

There is a limited number of testing facilities in the suburb, and this is making it inconvenient for residents to take care of their sexual health. Many do not want to spend the day waiting in a long line, and there is always the fear that they could run into a friend or family member. The lack of community health centers is also making it difficult for some residents to find one that is conveniently located.

Recent budget cuts are being held responsible for the lack of clinics, and the lack of funding is also affecting some residents’ ability to pay for regular STD testing. The simple procedure was previously covered under Medicaid, and now that this is no longer true many lower income families simply cannot afford the important procedure.

Until these and other contributing factors are resolved the community can expect to see its STD rates continue to rise.

Better Sexual Health in Newton, MA

Before you head off for a day of shopping at Newton Centre or tour one of the nearby colleges, it is important to take a few minutes to think about your sexual health. The number of sexually transmitted diseases reported each year is rising, and the best way to protect yourself is to get tested on a regular basis. It is understandable if you don’t want to spend the entire day waiting in a crowded community health facility and now there is an easier way to get tested. You can easily schedule confidential STD testing just by making one simple phone call. This way you only have to spend a few minutes in a local lab so you’ll still have plenty of time to explore this historic neighborhood.
