What are the STI test options in Pecos,TX?

Pecos, TX is the largest city in the Reeves County and is a regional center for ranching, oil, and gas production. The prevalence of HIV in Pecos County is 54 for every 100,000 people.

STDs and HIV/AIDs are rising in all parts of Texas, but especially in the western counties. Chlamydia rates increased from 8% in 2010 to 20% in 2017. Rates were higher among females between the ages of 15-34. This is of particular concern due it the potential of having an infant born with an STD.

Cases of newly diagnosed gonorrhea rose from 30,000 to 40,000 every year between 2010 and 2017. This STD was more prevalent in men, but rates for females are catching up quickly. The best way to prevent these numbers from climbing even higher in Pecos and other parts of western Texas is to increase STD testing, particularly among segments of the population who are most at risk.

The Texas Department of Health and Human Services considers syphilis to be a significant risk in western Texas, as cases more than doubled between 2010 and 2017.

Public health agencies consider providing free STD testing to Pecos and western Texas communities to be a central part of a plan to curb rising rates. However, clinics that offer free services are limited and not everyone qualifies for them.

Planned Parenthood and the local hospitals may have free or low-cost testing services. However, you must meet income guidelines to qualify and clinics may have long wait.

STD Testing and Sexual Health Education in Pecos, TX

The city of Pecos is located along the Mexican border, and it is proud of its history and culture, but this has also lead to an acceptance of the state sponsored sexual education program that promotes abstinence instead of teaching teenagers the dangers of not getting tested regularly. The recent cuts in funding has also hurt the city’s community health centers efforts at educating the residents, and while the local community colleges are reaching young adults the number of teenagers that test positive for an STD is continuing to rise. Until the city has a comprehensive sexual education program in place, health care officials will continue to deal with the increasing number of residents with STDs and not enough clinics to properly treat all of them.
