What are the STI test options in Racine,WI?
Just north of Kenosha, between Chicago and Milwaukee, residents of Racine are so close to the Chicago Statistical Area and the Milwaukee metropolitan area that they unfortunately share their high rates of sexually transmitted diseases.
According to the Healthy Chicago HIV/STI Surveillance Report 2018, new cases of chlamydia and gonorrhea totaled just shy of 42,000 for a ten-year high.
Good news though, HIV diagnosis is at its lowest point since 1990 thanks mostly to early detection, and an improved HIV care continuum. In Milwaukee, there has been a 13% increase in HIV compared to 2016, a 29% increase in syphilis, a 12% increase in gonorrhea, but only a 0.5% hike in chlamydia.
Racine, right in that region, is in the crosshairs to get both Chicago and Milwaukee’s crossfire. At a total of 1280 STD cases per 100,000 residents in 2017, it’s almost double the national average. That is only about 400 cases per 100,000 less than Milwaukee, and on par with Chicago. Racine is fighting back though. Mostly through frequent testing, health programs, and the use of a barrier—like condoms—in sexual intercourse.
There is a Planned Parenthood on Main Street, and Racine Sexually Transmitted on Washington Ave, so residents have options in combating this virile threat. Planned Parenthood screens for most major sexually transmitted diseases including: herpes, chlamydia, HIV (testing only), syphilis, gonorrhea, genital warts, and trichomoniasis. While they might not offer free STD testing, payment is often based on your income using a sliding scale.
