What are the STI test options in Pueblo,CO?

Pueblo County in Colorado had some of the highest rates state-wide for gonorrhea in 2017. The rate of new gonorrhea cases being over 200 per 100,000 people. Medical professionals in Colorado are questioning what could be the cause of the rampant rise in sexually transmitted diseases. They’re thinking the popular “hook-up” style dating applications (Tinder, Grindr, etc.) may be partly to blame. Along with the ever-increasing popular use of IUDs and decreased use of condoms with sexual partners.

The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) strives to work with more health providers to ensure people are getting screened and treated.

The more resistant strains of gonorrhea surfacing are of particular concern to Pueblo County officials. They’re trying to raise awareness of sexually transmitted diseases and remind people of the importance of using condoms. People tend to think of condoms only in terms of pregnancy prevention, but they are crucial in preventing STIs as well. Condoms are available for free at the health department’s clinic on 9th street. HIV prevalence in the Pueblo area is reported at 115 cases per 100,000 people. 

Affordable STI testing is also offered at the Pueblo City-County Health Department on 9th street. The department provides testing for herpes, syphilis, gonorrhea, chlamydia, HIV, and even hepatitis C. The ACPC Women’s Clinic on Colorado avenue can test for chlamydia and gonorrhea, but they only offer it in conjunction with a pregnancy test. HIV/AIDS care is available from Park Hill Clinic and Pharmacy located on East 5th street. Call to see if you are eligible for free testing.

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.

Sexual Health Education

STD Testing and Sexual Health Education in Pueblo, CO

There have been changes made to the states  requirements for sexual education programs in the classroom, and most teachers and health officials are worried that this will adversely affect students. With STD percentages rising, along with the number of teen pregnancies some educators are hoping that these changes are not permanent.

Recent shortages in funding are the main reason that the sex education programs are being cut across the state, and this can be potentially devastating for smaller, less populated cities. Not only are the majority of these cities lacking in resources for public health care, now they are also missing the information residents need to protect themselves.

Some law makers believe that abstinence based programs are enough to discourage teens from engaging in sex, but this will not stop the spread of venereal diseases. Not all STDs are contracted through sex, and these viruses can be spread in several different ways. While abstinence can help lower teen pregnancy rates, it cannot protect them from sexually transmitted diseases.

One way is by regular Herpes testing in Pueblo since this is one of the most common STD found in schools. Regular HIV testing in Pueblo is also important regardless of age or sexual activity.

Sexually Transmitted Diseases and Demographics in Pueblo, CO

There are several reasons why the number of sexual diseases each year continue to rise, and one of the main factors is the fact that very few residents understand how important it is to get tested. While testing won’t cure the disease or provide protection, it will let you know if you have contracted one so you can begin treating it. In some cases the only way to know if you are infected is by testing. Regular checkups will also help protect others since you won’t be passing the STD on to them.

Without sexual education programs in the public schools students will continue to engage in risky behavior, without even realizing it. Many teens are unaware of the importance of always using protection, and it is not uncommon for them to be unfamiliar with the various types of contraceptives. This lack of information not only puts teens at risk while they are still in school, it can continue to be a problem as they enter into adulthood.

The small city also faced budget cuts to its public health care program, which has left many residents without a way to get tested. Lower income residents often cannot afford regular testing, especially if it is a large family.
