What are the STI test options in Reading,PA?

The three most common STDs continue to be chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis. Berks County reported a disease prevalence rate of 451.1 cases for chlamydia out of every 100,000 residents in 2017. This meant there were a total of 1,885 cases of chlamydia reported across the county within a one year period.

The county ranked 7th overall in the state for chlamydia prevalence; however, it was only at the 12th ranking for gonorrhea. Gonorrhea disease prevalence in Berks County in 2017 reached 314 cases per 100,000 residents.

The population most at risk continues to be younger sexually active persons, under the age of 30.

Unfortunately, the stigma surrounding sexuality and sexual health aid in these diseases continuing to spread because people don’t have as many open discussions with intimate partners and seek out regular testing like they should for optimum health and well-being.

Routine testing should become a regular component of health care. There are multiple testing site options in the city of Reading. Co-County Wellness Services can be found on Walnut Street, Planned Parenthood Keystone is located on South 4th Street, and Reading Hospital and Medical Center offers testing services on 6th Avenue and Spruce Street.

If financial obligations are a concern there is free STD testing. Doctors may not always be on call, but you are taking a step to protect your sexual health.

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. 

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 Reading, PA?

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 Reading, PA?

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.

Sexual Health Education

STD Testing and Sexual Health Education in Reading, PA

STDs each year are rising, along with teen pregnancy rates, and the state still does not require sex education classes. If these programs are offered there are not any set guidelines for school districts to follow.

Even though all public school districts are required by federal law to provide medically accurate information on how HIV/AIDS can be contracted, studies have indicated that this is not enough. Topics that include contraceptives and use of condoms are never discussed, though it could help STD and teen pregnancy rates. This is why regular HIV testing in Reading is so important. Regular Herpes testing in Reading is also important if health officials and educators want to stop the virus from spreading.

Sexually Transmitted Diseases and Demographics in Reading, PA

Strong conservative beliefs that are prevalent in the area are making it difficult for teens and young adults to find someone to talk to if they think that they might have been affected by a STD. This is also causing many people to avoid the crowded STI clinics. Feelings of shame and embarrassment are common, and most residents do not want to run the risk of being spotted by friends and family at a community testing center.

This is one of the poorest counties in the state, and the majority of residents simply cannot afford regular STD testing fees. This is especially true now that it’s not covered by Medicaid. Since many residents can’t afford to pay the testing fees the majority do not seek the treatment they need even if they believe that they’ve been infected.
