What are the STI test options in Pine Bluff,AR?

Pine Bluff serves as the county seat for populous Jefferson County. As the 10th largest city in Arkansas, they’re hoping that by raising awareness all throughout the Little Rock-North Little Rock-Pine Bluff area they can stave off rising STD rates. 

Located just south of state capital Little Rock, Pine Bluff shares many of the same issues as its urban metropolitan counterpart, and with the rest of the state.

In 2016, Jefferson County reported 983 new cases of chlamydia. That same year, they had 407 newly documented outbreaks of gonorrhea.

Health officials credit diligence in screening to their reduction in syphilis cases by 30% between 2011 and 2015. There were an estimated 458 people living with HIV/AIDS in Jefferson County in 2015.

Those most affected by these bacterial infections are commonly either in the 15-24-year age group, female, or People of Color, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Arkansas – State Health Profile. Doctors within the Pine Bluff area hypothesize that shame and failing to be screened out of fear or misinformation might be leading to the increased risk of transmission.

If you are in Pine Bluff and looking to get tested, there are a few affordable options near you. There’s the Jefferson County Health Unit on Rike Drive. They offer HIV/STD counseling, testing, and treatment. If you’re looking for a more traditional doctor experience STD testing is offered through wellness exams at Healthcare Plus on Dusty Lake Drive. To find free STD testing opportunities, head into Jefferson. Most public clinics offer same day, walk-in appointments, but be prepared to wait longer with an increased chance of being seen waiting by someone you know.

To find the best services and location for you, use our search tools below to compare location features across Pine Bluff clinics with our easy-to-read chart. 

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 Pine Bluff, AR?

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 Pine Bluff, AR?

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.

Sexual Health Education

STD Testing and Sexual Health Education in Pine Bluff, AR

There are numerous public health and sexual health educators in the area, and more generally, Jefferson County, who regularly hold education sessions and public forums to educate the community about the risks of sexually transmitted diseases, how to prevent the transmission of these diseases, and safe sex practices. However, sexual health education in Pine Bluff’s schools is relatively limited. Located deep within the United States’ so-called Bible Belt, the community tends to hold traditional and conservative values about many topics, including sex. As a result, most sexual health education programs in local schools are abstinence-based.

Other organizations have stepped forward to attempt to address this gap in education. The Arkansas Human Development Corporation has a comprehensive health outreach program that covers a wide umbrella of different issues. However, one important issue that they touch on is educating participants about sexual health, with a body positive and proactive curriculum.  In addition to these government programs, the Hope Women’s Resource Center, which primarily provides services to young women who are dealing with unintended pregnancies — also provides education and counseling, as well as testing services. The Jefferson County Health Services Unit (through the Arkansas Department of Public Health) also provides free-of-cost STD testing for most STDs and also guarantees the confidentiality of results, which may be an important concern for many young people.

Many of the locations and organizations that provide STD testing services offer free condoms to anyone, and college students at the University of Arkansas Pine Bluff also have access to free condoms at numerous sites on campus.

Sexually Transmitted Diseases and Demographics in Pine Bluff, AR

Numerous factors may help explain why Pine Bluff has significantly higher STD rates than what is seen in the rest of the state. One of these contributing factors is the fact that the University of Arkansas has a campus (the Pine Bluff campus) within the city limits. The historically black college and university (HBCU) currently enrolls a diverse student population of approximately 2,500 students.

Frequently, college-aged individuals are more promiscuous (a greater number of sexual partners) than older individuals, and oftentimes, individuals in this age cohort neglect to follow safe sexual practices (particularly if these encounters happen after an evening of drinking). Due to this, it is not uncommon to see higher rates of STDs, particularly chlamydia and gonorrhea, among college students.

In part fueled by the location of the college, the demographics of Pine Bluff are significantly different than the demographics for the surrounding area and the rest of Arkansas. For example, the average age of a resident of Pine Bluff is almost 3 years younger than for the state, and far fewer residents of Pine Bluff are married. Again, this relatively young age and unmarried status may lead to individuals having more sexual partners.

As the number of sexual partners increases, the risk of STDs rises, especially if individuals are not engaging in safe sexual practices for whatever reason. Given the particular demographics of the region, it is important for schools (both public secondary schools) and the university to proactively and appropriately educate their students about sexual health. This education must be comprehensive and cannot simply rely on an abstinence-driven message.  

STI Testing Resources in Pine Bluff, AR

There are numerous options that residents in the area can consider if they want to be tested for HIV or other sexually transmitted diseases. Most of these facilities offer similar services at almost identical prices, and some places offer free testing via subsidized government programs. The availability of different testing options offers opportunities and choices to the health consumer, allowing him or her to pick the facility that is most convenient and comfortable for them.

In addition to the testing facilities that will be described in more detail below, it is important to note that residents of Pine Bluff can travel to Little Rock (which is a convenient drive of less than one hour, north on I530) to Arkansas’ Planned Parenthood Clinic. The Planned Parenthood office provides a wide range of services, including: providing birth control and abortion services, offering yearly pap smears and other important diagnostic testing, and providing comprehensive testing for STDS, as well as vaccinations for some sexually transmitted diseases (such as HPV). Some testing, however, does not have immediate results. For example, a patient must return five days later to receive their HIV test results — given the distance to Little Rock, this may be an inconvenience and barrier to some residents of Pine Bluff. Also, the Planned Parenthood Clinic is not open on the weekend — and only offers one night (Monday) with extended hours. This may also be a barrier to care for people with full-time jobs or university classes during the day.

For people who do not, or cannot, travel all the way to Little Rock, there are numerous local choices for STD testing. The Jefferson Comprehensive Care System and the Arkansas Department of Public Health offer testing services for most common sexually transmitted diseases, including rapid HIV testing. People can also obtain the HPV vaccine at both locations. For people with limited financial resources or concerned about the cost of testing, the Jefferson County Health Services Unit through the Department of Public Health provides free testing. However, it is worth noting that some patients (depending on financial resources) will be charged for the HPV vaccine.

In addition to these options, there is also a for-profit testing center located in the area, the STD Express Test. This option primarily markets itself and differentiates itself from its competitors via the large number of tests that it can offer. But, this testing diversity also comes with a cost. Prices here are significantly higher than what a person would likely find at another location.

Better Sexual Health in Pine Bluff, AR

We all are interested in ways to improve our health — from a better diet full of nutrient-rich fruits and vegetables to a new exercise regime that helps us tone up and get more heart healthy. However, sometimes, we have a tendency to forget that comprehensive health also includes better sexual health. One important aspect of sexual health is regular testing for STDs and engaging in safe sexual practices to reduce the risk of transmitting these diseases. At the moment, the rate of sexually transmitted diseases is concerning in the Pine Bluff area. However, educators and activists are working to address stumbling blocks to better sexual health and there are a large number of testing options for people who want to address this topic proactively. Take control of your sexual health and take the next steps — test and educate yourself.
