What are the STI test options in Quincy,MA?

STD rates in Massachusetts are well below the national average, but health officials are still worried because they are going up. In 2016, Norfolk County had an HIV prevalence rate of 211 per 100K people, below Massachusetts’s rate of 342.5.

That same year, the county had a chlamydia rate of 493.7, above the state average rate of 394.5. The gonorrhea and (primary and secondary) syphilis rates were 92.2 and 8.

But health officials are most concerned that there are other people out there who do not know they are infected. Most STIs are asymptomatic in the early stages, and this can give a false sense of security. However, these diseases can lead to infertility and other irreversible conditions.

The only way to tell your sexual health status is to be tested regularly.

At least one nonprofit in the area provides free STD testing, but you will need to pre-register to get an appointment. The AFC Urgent Care in nearby Braintree provides confidential STI testing and treatment.

The Crown Colony Medical Center on Congress St offers HIV testing and treatment. Fenway Health provides STI testing and treatment for men who have sex with men and those who identify as transgender.

Additional STD Test Statistics in Quincy, MA


Fifteen years ago Syphilis was considered to be “almost eradicated”  and HIV rates were dropping across the state. According to the statistics these rates have been steadily increasing since 2008, and now the metro area has some of the highest percentages in the state.

African Americans account for the majority of STD incidents, followed closely by Caucasian and Hispanic residents. The statistics also show that STDs can and do affect everyone, regardless of sexual preference or age.

The recent data also shows that high school students are testing positive for the Herpes virus, and this means that this easily transmittable disease can be easily spread to other residents. Surprising health officials are the number of HPV tests that are coming back positive in teenage boys, and this transmittable virus can be easily prevented with a simple vaccination.

  • In 2014 the city and surrounding metro area had one of the highest Chlamydia and Gonorrhea rates in the state.
  • Since 2012 the number of reported STDs in the area has been steadily rising to some of the highest in the state.
  • The HIV rate in the metro area was reported at 30.6 per 100,000 residents in 2014.

STD Testing and Sexual Health Education in Quincy, MA

In 2015 the state passed a law that requires school districts to include age appropriate information on STDs and contraceptives if they offer sex education.

This new law does not require school districts to provide comprehensive sex education classes, it simply says that if the program is offered to students it must meet the new mandates.

Like much of the state residents of this bedroom community are more comfortable with abstinence based programs, and some public schools have even removed the limited materials that they offered from their curriculums in an effort to avoid having to teach comprehensive classes. The majority of residents still believe that it should be left up to the parents’ discretion when it comes to discussing the dangers and responsibilities associated with being sexually active. While in theory this approach to sex education seems fine, many parents are simply not comfortable discussing this sensitive subject with their teenager.

This means that most students are not aware how important regular Herpes testing in Quincy is, especially when they are in high school where the virus is most prevalent. Regular HIV testing in Quincy is also vital regardless of whether you think your behavior is putting you at risk.

Sexually Transmitted Diseases and Demographics in Quincy, MA

The city’s lack of STI clinics is making it difficult for residents to find a convenient place to get tested, especially when you consider the long lines and crowded waiting rooms at the community health centers. Most residents don’t want to run into a familiar face or spend the entire day at the clinic, and this is not always possible at the city’s few testing centers.

Many residents are also finding it difficult to afford regular testing. With many families still recovering financially after the stock and housing market collapse, regular STD testing is thought of as a luxury and not as an important part of a complete health care routine.

The lack of a comprehensive sex education program in the city’s public schools is the main contributing factor to the high number of residents that test positive for a venereal disease. Most students graduate without understanding how STDs are spread, and the subject of regular testing is rarely discussed.
