What are the STI test options in Plantation,FL?

Southeast Florida is known for high STD rates, especially HIV. In 2015, there were 18,867 people living with HIV or AIDS in Broward County, with a prevalence rate of 1,180 per 100K people, well above Florida’s rate of 615.

Health officials are worried about the people out there who still don’t know they are infected. There is still a stigma around HIV, especially directed toward gay and bisexual men, and this may make some people reluctant to come in for testing. But medical professionals are discreet and only want to help you.

In 2017, 11,289 people in Broward County were diagnosed with chlamydia, at a rate of 599 per 100K people, above Florida’s rate of 486.8. The gonorrhea and infectious syphilis rates were 209.1 and 17.5.

There aren’t too many clinics actually in Plantation, but there are more options closer to Fort Lauderdale (and you may have some luck finding free STD testing there). The CVS MinuteClinic on Broward Blvd provides basic screenings. CAN Community Health on NW 3rd Ct provides STD testing and treatment, and they also prescribe PrEP.

Additional STD Test Statistics in Plantation, FL

In 2015 it was reported that the county had the second highest HIV rate and that the number of new cases reported that year had increased by 23 percent over 2014. Statistics also indicate that primary and secondary Syphilis diagnoses are up, and this is especially worrisome to health officials who thought that this disease was under control.

It is not just Syphilis and HIV/AIDS rates that are increasing, but Chlamydia and Gonorrhea incidents are also rising at an alarming rate. From 1996 to 2015 the infection rate for these sexually transmitted diseases more than doubled. This is true for women and men.

The statistics also show that it is not just teens and young adults that are at risk, but adults ages 24 to 28 at also testing positive for a STD more often. This is especially true among African American and Hispanic males who account for the majority of Gonorrhea, Syphilis and HIV incidents. When it comes to Chlamydia and contagious HPV women present the highest risk, and this also includes genital Herpes.

  • In 2015 the county reported 403 new HIV cases compared to 328 incidents during 2014.
  • The county ranked second in the nation in 2015 for its high HIV/AIDS rate.
  • Chlamydia, Gonorrhea and Syphilis rates in the county surpassed state average’s in 2009, and are still higher as of 2015 statistics.

STD Testing and Sexual Health Education in Plantation, FL

Even as the number of STDs reported each year keeps increasing local officials are still reluctant to make any changes to the information currently being provided in the public schools’ sex education classes.

One reason for this reluctance to change is a state law that requires all public schools to promote abstinence, along with the benefits of being in a monogamous, heterosexual marriage. Not only does this mean that the information being taught to students is biased and not always medically accurate, it also does meet the needs of today’s teenagers and young adults.

Adding to the problem is the fact that public schools are not required by law to teach sex education to its students, and this means that many teens are graduating without understanding the risks and responsibilities that come with being sexually active. It is also not uncommon for teens and young adults to not even know how to use a condom or how important it can be for their continued good health.

Since the teen pregnancy rates are reaching an all-time high it is becoming obvious that students are engaging in sexual activity, often at a younger age than in previous years. This means that it is more important than ever for students to understand how important regular HIV testing in Plantation is for their sexual health.

Sexually Transmitted Diseases and Demographics in Plantation, FL

This metro city is also home to a large number of retirees, and thanks to advances in health care they are living longer and staying sexually active. Many of the area’s senior citizens do not understand the importance of using protection, even at their advanced age. This is thought to be one of the reasons why Gonorrhea, Syphilis and HIV rates are rising in older adult males. While steps are being taken to educate the area’s seniors, regular STD testing is also needed if local officials want to start to lower the city’s sexually transmittable disease rates.

Budget cuts to state health care programs and Medicaid is making it difficult for some lower income residents to afford  testing, and the lack of funding has also forced many community centers to close their doors. When residents cannot even find a place to be tested for STIs, it is easy to see why they are not taking care of their sexual health.
