What are the STI test options in Omaha,NE?

As rates rise around the country, Omaha also deals with its onslaught of STD cases. Unfortunately, the Omaha area actually exceeds the national average for STD rates and has done so since the late 1990’s.

In order to stay safe and reduce the rising rate of sexually transmitted diseases, it’s vital to maintain good sexual health through regular screenings and preventative measures.

In 2016 the number of sexually transmitted diseases reported in Douglas County totaled a whopping 5,081 cases. Across the county rates for chlamydia and gonorrhea have continued to be above the national average since 1998, an alarming statistic.

Although the state ranks low for most sexually diseases, the Omaha area leads the state in rankings for prevalence of chlamydia and gonorrhea. The groups at the greatest risk are young adults between 20 and 24, then teens between the ages of 15 and 19.

What’s the best way to stay safe? Regularly seek out information and undergo routine testing at an STD testing site. Services exist to provide free condoms and educational awareness, like Get Checked Omaha.

Other organizations serve to provide support, testing, and treatment. From the One World Community Health Centers Incorporated to the Nebraska Urban Indian Health Coalition Incorporated, many locations exist. Free STD testing is an option, if you don’t mind long waits in line.
