What are the STI test options in Odessa,TX?

Odessa finds itself located in one of the unhealthiest counties in the state. Although various public and private organizations are working to combat the rising rates the effects have not yet taken hold.

In 2015 the following STD cases were reported: 6 cases of HIV, 12 cases of syphilis, 98 cases of gonorrhea, and 155 cases of chlamydia.

These numbers were a significant increase from the year before and have continued to see a rising trend in the following years. A push for greater sexual education is being made to try to combat these numbers.

Although public and private testing locations in Odessa might be difficult to find, there are options within city limits and even more within a reasonable driving distance. Odessa’s Ector County Health Department offers STD testing. Widening the field, Midland Health Department on West Illinois Street in Midland and Andrews County Health Department on Northwest 2nd Street in Andrews are also locations for testing.

You can ask about free STD testing but be prepared to wait for an appointment since dates are limited.

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. 

SaferSTD has researched and identified the most accredited and most reputable testing locations. Click here to find a preferred location near you.

What same-day testing locations are available in Odessa, TX?

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 Odessa, TX?

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.

Sexual Health Education

STD Testing and Sexual Health Education in Odessa, TX

STD Testing Odessa, TX

This small west Texas city is proud of its education system that does not include information about sexual diseases and safe sexual practices. While the city school system is independent, it still follows the state’s curriculum concerning sexual education for students. This may fit in with the city’s moral and religious beliefs, but it is also putting the residents at risk of contracting a sexually transmitted disease. Without the proper education the city’s teenagers and young adults will continue to put themselves and others at risk, and the number of STD cases will increase every year.

While the religious and moral beliefs of this small city do promote abstinence until marriage, this is not always enough to prevent the spread of some sexually transmitted diseases. Not all STDs display noticeable symptoms and only HIV testing in Odessa can detect and begin treating this disease before it turns into AIDS. Herpes tests in Odessa can also treat and prevent residents from spreading this viral infection, and it can help stop the embarrassing sores from appearing around the lips and mouth.

Sexually Transmitted Diseases and Demographics in Odessa, TX

The demographical makeup of the west Texas region is a diverse mix that mirrors the area’s rich cultural heritage, and does affect the STD rate in the area. Cultural and religious beliefs often prevent residents from believing that they need to be tested regularly, and there is also a problem with the language barrier. The main contributing factor to Odessa’s high rate of STDs is the city’s lack of sex education programs in the school system. Without proper education the number of residents infected will continue to rise, and many will go untested and continue to spread the sexual disease.

STD Testing Odessa, TX

The city of Odessa has a 10′ jackrabbit gracing its downtown streets, and all of the natural beauty associated with the west Texas region, along with a rising number of STD cases. The lack of a comprehensive sexual educational program is contributing to this problem, along with a lack of health care centers. While there are a few clinics residents can visit, the long lines and risk of running into a neighbor have many people foregoing this important step to ensure good sexual health.

There is another option residents should consider that will let them schedule a private STD test in Odessa. This lets residents avoid the long lines and chances of running into friends and neighbors, while still taking care of their sexual health. Spend just a few minutes at the local clinic for your test, and still have plenty of time to see the sun set over the vast west Texas sky.
