Additional STD Test Statistics in Portland, ME
Adults over the age of 25 are testing positive for Syphilis and HIV with alarming frequency in recent years. After seeing the infection rates for these STDs decrease in the 1980’s, they are starting to increase again. This is particularly worrisome to health officials since it can take years in some cases for these STDs to display any noticeable symptoms. Without regular STI testing it is easy for residents to unknowingly spread these infectious diseases.
In 2010 the state reported 2,586 cases of Chlamydia, compared to 3,993 in 2015.
The area saw 422 new cases of Gonorrhea in 2015, compared to only 162 in 2010.
HIV incidents rose by 10 in a 5 year period, and Syphilis infections doubled from 2010 to 2015.
STD Testing and Sexual Health Education in Portland, ME
The city is one of the few that offers age appropriate sex education to middle and high school students. While the state does not require its public schools to provide sex education beyond the federal mandates, this is not true in the city or metro area.
Not only are students taught about the dangers of HIV and STDs, they also learn how to protect themselves if they are sexually active. This comprehensive sex education program was introduced to students in the late 1960’s and has strived to provide teens with information that is pertinent to the times.
Unfortunately recent budget cuts might mean that the current sex education program is in danger of being reduced or even eliminated. This would mean that the majority of teens won’t have access to the information they need to protect themselves from sexually transmitted diseases.
STD Clinic Information in Portland, ME
The best way to prevent sexually transmitted diseases is with regular visits to a STI clinic. Regular HIV testing in Portland is the only method capable of detecting the virus. Regular Herpes testing in Portland is also important, and takes only minutes.
Sexually Transmitted Diseases and Demographics in Portland, ME
Demographics do play a role in the STD rates. It is the largest metropolis in the state with the majority of the population residing within the city limits, and this alone will cause the area to have a higher STD rate.
Since regular and emergency testing is no longer covered by government sponsored health insurance many residents simply cannot afford the clinic or lab fees. This means that the majority of people that are at an increased risk can’t get the health care they need.
Medical advances are making it possible for residents to stay sexually active longer, and this is thought to be one of the factors to contributing to rising HIV and Syphilis rates. The sharing of needles is another reason the city is seeing its STD rates steadily climb.
Better Sexual Health in Portland, ME
There are plenty of attractions in the city to keep residents happily occupied, but before you start your day it is important to think about your health. Your STD testing options include HIV and STI clinics, and both can give your same-day, accurate results. Where they differ is in the degree of privacy offered, and if this is important you’re better off at a STI testing center. Anonymous, low-cost and fast, stop before a tour of a Victorian mansion.
