What are the STI test options in Norwalk,CT?

Compared to the rest of the US, Connecticut has low STD rates, but Norwalk is part of the New York metropolitan area, so its rates are a bit high compared to the rest of the state. Also, health officials are worried because STD rates in the state are going up.

In 2017, there were 291 people living with HIV or AIDS in Norwalk (the population of the city is a little under 90,000).

In 2015, 224 people in Norwalk were diagnosed with chlamydia, at a rate of 257 per 100K people. The rates of gonorrhea and primary and secondary syphilis were 35 and 2. Those aren’t terribly high, but the numbers should still come down. Most STDs are mostly preventable with condoms and dental dams (note that they won’t protect you from herpes).

Also, all sexually active people should be tested regularly, even if they are not experiencing symptoms. Most STDs are asymptomatic in the early stages, but if they’re left undetected and untreated, they can cause big, and irreversible, problems.

Norwalk has a few STD-testing clinics, and there are more options in the surrounding cities, including free STD testing at the county level if you can prove your inability to pay, and an organization focused on the LGBTQ community that provides free HIV testing.

AFC Urgent Care offers STD testing at their location in the Center Seven Shopping Center. The Norwalk Health Department on East Ave also provides STD testing for a low cost.

Additional STD Test Statistics in Norwalk, CT

It is not just Chlamydia, Gonorrhea and infectious Syphilis rates that are rising, the number of HIV cases reported annual is also increasing. After dropping to 78 cases in 2012, which is the lowest it has been in the last two decades, there were 102 cases reported in 2014. This has health officials worried since this potentially deadly virus can be easily spread through various methods. African American and Hispanic males account for the majority of HIV incidents reported in the county each year.

Another worrisome trend, according to the recent statistics, is that up to 25 percent of those diagnosed with HIV also tested positive for Syphilis.

STD Testing and Sexual Health Education in Norwalk, CT

With STD rates rising across the state it might surprise you to learn that public schools are not required to teach sex education. They do have to provide medically accurate and comprehensive information on HIV/AIDS, but it is up to the school’s discretion on where it will be taught. This means that it can be included in any class, as long as it is offered.

Since sex education is not a requirement there aren’t any guidelines or curriculums for public school districts to follow, except that it must be abstinence based. This means that if students receive any type of sex education it is often limited to being taught that abstaining from intercourse is the only effective way to prevent STDs and unplanned pregnancies. Studies conducted over the last thirty years have conclusively shown that this is not true, and that it can put students’ sexual health at risk.

Topics that include condoms and other types of contraceptives are allowed, but most schools do not cover this type of information.

Regular HIV testing in Norwalk is the best way to prevent the disease from spreading, and it could also save your life. Regular Herpes testing in Norwalk is just as important, and the simple procedure is an effective way to stop the virus from spreading through area high schools.

Sexually Transmitted Diseases and Demographics in Norwalk, CT

While the lack of comprehensive and medically accurate sex education classes in public schools is one of the main factors contributing to the city’s high STD rates, it is certainly not the only one. With over 90 percent of parents surveyed stating that they want comprehensive sex education classes offered in public schools, health officials are hopeful that this will soon not be one of the reasons why the number of STDs reported each year keeps rising.

The city is home to an estimated 8,000 college students and this is contributing to the area’s STD rates. It is not uncommon for their behavior to put their sexual health at risk, along with everyone that they come in contact with. This includes other students, as well as permanent residents.

It is understandable if you don’t want to wait in the long lines at the community health facility and now you don’t have to.
