What are the STI test options in Northeast Cobb,GA?
As part of the Atlanta metropolitan area, Cobb County shares its high STD rates to some extent. In 2015, there were 2,664 people living with HIV or AIDS in Cobb County, with a prevalence rate of 436, under Georgia’s rate of 588. Primary and secondary syphilis is a problem in this area. In 2015, there were 82 cases, at a rate of 11.2 per 100K people.
Cobb County’s 2015 chlamydia rate was 298.9, well under Georgia’s rate of 570.8, but that’s still high. STD rates are higher in the South, partially due to insufficient sex education for youth and high poverty rates.
Cobb County health officials advise sexually active people to always use protection and to get tested regularly.
Most STD-testing clinics in Cobb County are in Marietta, and there are more options if you can get to Atlanta or Sandy Springs. At least one charitable organization provides free STD testing if you can prove that you cannot pay for services. Planned Parenthood is on Cobb Pkwy, and they test for STIs and treat all except for HIV, on a sliding-fee scale. Cobb & Douglas Public Health, on County Services Pkwy, provides testing. Bring proof of your income, as that will determine the fee.
