What are the STI test options in Rhode Island?

Often regarded for being the first colony to declare independence from British rule and being the smallest state within the continental United States, Rhode Island is the home to many and love throughout the entire world. Not only is the state small and rich in history, it also offers some truly unique activities and events to keep the community and its tourist entertained round-the-clock. While soaking up all that Rhode Island has to offer, it’s important to keep your sexual health within check. By periodically taking a STD test, you can help reduce the number of sexual transmitted diseases throughout the nation. Unfortunately, RI is experiencing a STD epidemic which is rapidly growing out of control.

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 Rhode Island?

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 Rhode Island?

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.

Additional STD Test Statistics in Rhode Island

A number of sexually transmitted diseases including gonorrhea, syphilis, chlamydia, HIV, and Herpes have rapidly been growing out of control within RI. Although the state has offered a number of resources and services to the general public to fight this epidemic, the STD rates are continuing to rise.

According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s 2013 Rhode Island young people STD report, the state isn’t the worst when compared to the other 49 states. The report was broken down by the states counties and addressed the chlamydial, gonorrheal, and syphilis rates individually. According to this report, with 100,000 person population sample size:

  • A very large majority of counties had an average chlamydia rate between 1000 and 3000
  • All counties in RI had a less than or equal to rate of 300 in regards to gonorrhea
  • In the primary and secondary syphilis rates were considerably lower throughout the state overall

As a whole, the state did not have any counties that had exponentially abnormal rates, which is a great sign. Additionally, the report compared the state’s STD rates to the U.S. averages. Across the board, Rhode Island had lower rates than the national average. More specifically, the state had a chlamydial rate of 1856.6 while the national rate was 2160.2. Also, the gonorrheal rate for the state was 141.7 while the U.S. average rate remained 421.3. Finally, the Primary and Secondary Syphilis rate for the state was 3.1 while the U.S. Average was 10.3.

Even more recently, the CDC released its annual state health profile of Rhode Island, providing up-to-date information that can provide more insight towards this unfolding epidemic. Inside the state’s health profile, statistics revealed the increasing severity for specific sexual transmitted diseases. For example, in 2009, the state had a syphilis rate of 1.9. However, in 2013, the rate sharply increased to 4.3. According to its rate, the state is now ranked 18th. Additionally, the CDC ranked the state 29th for its rate of chlamydial infections and ranked the state 43rd for its gonorrheal infections. Although the state is seeing an increase with a large number of various STDs, it appears that primary and secondary syphilis is exponentially increasing fastest.
