What are the STI test options in Paterson,NJ?

In a 2017 list of the top 50 sexually diseased (bacterial STDs only) towns in New Jersey, Paterson ranked #7, with 1,483 chlamydia cases, 571 gonorrhea cases, and 55 syphilis cases.

Health officials say it is primarily young people who are responsible for the rise in STD rates, and the state government is investing in an education campaign that includes screening. (STD rates in Passaic County also jumped after budget cuts for family planning clinics by the previous administration.)

Passaic County had 2,584 living with HIV or AIDS in 2013.

Paterson has a couple of STD-testing clinics, and there are even more options in the surrounding area, including free STD testing at a public clinic for HIV only (for which there may be a wait). The City of Paterson Division of Health provides STD testing in their clinic on Broadway. Planned Parenthood, also on Broadway but on the east side of town, tests for all STIs and treats all of them except HIV. Your fee depends on your income.

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 Paterson, NJ?

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 Paterson, NJ?

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 Paterson, NJ

There is a joint effort by local hospitals, private physicians and STD testing centers to gather as much information about STD rates in the region. The data is forwarded to local health departments and the Center for Disease Control for inclusion in a national database. No personally identifying information is shared. Age, area of residence, gender and the type of STD testing with results is the only information that is shared. Client confidentiality is strictly maintained. The data is used to determine which groups of people are at the highest risk for contracting STDs so strategic plans may be made for education and testing services. Analysts and statisticians compile the data and present annual reports with this information. The following chart shows the percentage of people who have been diagnosed with certain STDs in the area per 100,000 in population.

  • Chlamydia- 336.0
  • Gonorrhea- 74.6
  • Syphilis-13.2

The numbers are alarmingly high and it is believed by health department officials that this may be just the tip of the iceberg. If everyone who is at risk for STD infection would get tested, the number of positive testing results would soar beyond these figures.

Sexual Health Education

STD Testing and Sexual Health Education in Paterson, NJ

The trends in STD infection rates are showing that the numbers of people between the ages of 15 to 19 is increasing. State and federal authorities have worked togeher to launch a strategy to reach youth with mandatory sexual health education courses in the public school curriculum. It is delivered to students just prior to the age at which some may begin sexual experimentation. They learn about the consequences of unprotected sex including unwanted pregnancy and STD infection. Students who complete these courses will know where to go for a Herpes test or for HIV testing. They are also taught how to recognize some of the symptoms of certain STD infections.

Sexually Transmitted Diseases and Demographics in Paterson, NJ

Statistics show that people who are living at or below the poverty level tend to be in a higher risk category. It is believed that the reason for this is a lack of sexual health education and limited financial resources to obtain quality medical care for testing and treatment. People who have not had experience with STD infection may not fully understand the risk that they are taking by having unprotected sex. Not all STDs present symptoms in the early stages so it is possible for a person to be infected, spread the disease and not even be aware of what is going on.

Chlamydia rates are twice as high in women as they are in men. Women age 20 o 24 have the highest rates. With regard to ethnicity, Blacks are diagnosed most often followed by Whites, then Hispanics. This is one of the most common types of STD that has been reported in the last few decades. Gonorrhea is slightly higher in male populations with those age 20 to 24 having the highest rates, followed by those age 25 to 29, then age 15 to 19. Blacks have the highest number of incidences with Whites next and Hispanics the third highest.

Syphilis numbers are also on the rise in male to male sex populations. There is also a trend towards these me showing dual diagnoses with Chlamydia and Gonorrhea infections simultaneously. Men have higher rates than women do. According to age, men between 20 to 24 have the highest rates followed by age 40 to 44 with the ethnicity pattern following the same trends as for Chlamydia and Gonorrhea.

Health department officials understand that more needs to be done to enlighten the public, and in particular, the groups who are at the highest risks with sexual health information. Just spreading the word is not enough. More treatment centers with funding for low income persons is also needed. Although there are several Free STD testing centers which offer free or reduced testing rates, each of them is dependent upon funding that may become depleted before the end of the funding cycle. This means that people who are in dire need of STD testing may need to wait until there is new funding available.
