What are the STI test options in Port St. Lucie,FL?

Port St. Lucie’s STD rates are not as high as Miami’s, but the city still has a big problem. In 2015, Florida’s HIV rate was 615 cases per 100K people. St. Lucie County’s rate was a bit above that at 623. That year, there were 1,590 people living with HIV in the county.

Health officials point to several reasons for this problem. One important factor is homophobia: because of social stigma, many people who are at risk of infection are ashamed to come in for testing and treatment. And this results in late diagnosis. But medical professionals are discreet and help is available, so you should never put off learning your status and options.

Some organizations even offer periodic free STD testing events to entice people to come in.

St. Lucie County’s 2017 bacterial STD rates are a bit lower than Florida’s: 392.7 for chlamydia, 85 for gonorrhea, and 10 for infectious syphilis.

There are a number of STD-testing clinics in Port St. Lucie. The Florida Department of Health in St Lucie County offers STD and HIV screening in two locations (check the times before you go).

Xpress Urgent Care, on Prima Vista Blvd, offers screening for all STDs on a walk-in basis. CareSpot Urgent Care, located further east on the same street, also offers STD screening.

STD Testing and Sexual Health Education in Port St. Lucie, FL

Parents that want their child to receive all aspects of health ed must sign a permission slip. If they don’t, their child will be left out of the most important parts of the class. Since these slips don’t always make it home, parents often don’t even know that there is something their child is missing out on. To help fill this void and promote HIV and STD awareness many clinics have taken it upon themselves to bring education to the public.

One of the forerunners of this cause is Planned Parenthood, and some of the burden is being relived by the Center for Sexual Health and Awareness. Sign-up for a class, ask questions of their counselors or simply grab some literature on your way out. The goal at both of these clinics is to prevent sexually transmitted diseases from infecting anyone else.

Florida’s health department also works with HIV/AIDS prevention. A complete schedule can be found on their website for all their classes and programs. Some might be geared more for adults, but they, PP and the CSHA also have classes for teenagers that missed out in school.
