What are the STI test options in Providence,RI?

Syphilis cases tripled between 2007 and 2017, reaching 8.5 cases per 100K people, with 80% of those infected residing in Providence County.

Health officials speculate that the rise in known cases could be partially due to increased and improved testing, but it’s still a worrying statistic. In 2017, the chlamydia rate in Providence County was 622.6. And in 2016, there were 294 cases of gonorrhea.

For both chlamydia and gonorrhea, there has been a spike in diagnoses of teens.

In 2015, 54 people in Providence County were diagnosed with HIV. Health officials recommend regular testing and condom use (they are concerned that condom use has decreased). Some organizations hold free STD testing events during STD Awareness Month to combat the problem.

With all of Providence’s medical expertise, there are plenty of STD-testing clinics in the city, so you should be able to find a location near you. The Rhode Island Department of Public Health can diagnose and treat most STDs on a sliding fee based on your finances.

Planned Parenthood, on Broad Street, tests for most STDs. Or try the Miriam Hospital HIV/STD Clinic on Main St or the AIDS Project Rhode Island on Pleasant St.

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 Providence, RI?

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 Providence, RI?

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.

Looking for a Low Cost or Free STD Testing Clinic? Let's See What's Available in Providence, RI

Remember, you live in a state with fewer square miles, and this automatically means that there will be less places to go if you want to be proactive about STDs and your health. This doesn’t mean that you’ll have to cross state lines, though there are clinics that will accept you there.

Planned Parenthood of Southern New England is all around you. One of their most convenient locations is on Point Street. They are determined to keep their doors open regardless of legislative funding, all to continue to see to your health. STD tests are part of their services, and they keep evening and weekend hours to ensure that everyone has the same opportunity to see a health professional. Fees can be waived, and insurance is accepted. You just need to let them know you’re on your way.

Providence Community Health Centers (PCHC) has a center on Candace St. Tests for Hepatitis C and other infectious diseases are available for anyone that has enrolled as a patient. Insurance is a plus, but not necessary. Their centers will see anyone that needs to be evaluated. Make sure that you go through the enrollment process if this is your first choice. There is another office on Warren Way if this is closer for you.

Affordable or Free HIV Testing Clinics Near Providence, RI

Syphilis may be the “new” old disease that is garnering recent attention, but HIV and AIDS haven’t gone away either. The autoimmune deficiency virus and its predecessor are starting to place Providence on a health warning map that they would rather not be a part of. To prevent this, have an HIV test every time a clinic screens you for sexually transmitted diseases.

If you didn’t do this or need an additional test, anyplace that look for STDs can probably check for the infectious virus. For those that want to double check or have placed themselves in a potentially risky environment, go down Pleasant St. you’ll see the building for the AIDS project of Rhode Island.

Anyone 13 years and older will been seen and tested, if that’s why they’re there. It’s an organization so fees can be waived, but this also results in lines that can extend past the doors.

AIDS Care Ocean State, Broad St., has the same operating premise and services as their associates on Pleasant St. What sets them apart from others is that they have both types of HIV blood tests, rapid and conventional. If you need to know your results now, choose rapid over the other.

Miriam Hospital has a variety of health related services, and they are open to those not lucky enough to have insurance. Sometimes, it can even be free or low cost. This policy applies to both types of HIV blood tests. You don’t even have to become part of their network to access these benefits.

If you don’t mind a 10 mile or so drive through gorgeous county, Health Imperatives and Thundermist Health Center of Woonsocket aren’t that far away. Both have tests that can provide your HIV status in minutes. Sometimes it can be worth the short distance to find out if you are safe or need to start immediate treatment.

STD Testing and Sexual Health Education in Providence, RI

Sex education has changed for the better, and now bills are in play to introduce the concept of consensual sex. This is a huge leap forward for a town that is predominately viewed as conservative.

More than “just saying no” is being taught in schools, but students are leaving complaining that they feel like much was missing. Are contraceptives effective and only “gays” catch diseases are questions that they don’t seem to have the right answers too. When they enter into any one of the college campuses in Providence they usually become another statistic on the county’s health chart.

PPRI has helped introduce some of the new educational measures, and they are as active in the community as they have always been. Classes are open to the public, and you can find literature in every exam room. Condoms are free, and they will explain to you that they really work, you don’t have to ask.

They are not the only ones that are reaching out to the people they serve. AIDS Project RI and AIDS Care Ocean State are other social groups that are trying to serve the community. Events are held by both organizations, you can just show up, learn and participate.
