What are the STI test options in Richardson,TX?

Richardson in a suburb of Dallas, and most of it lies inside Dallas County. In 2017, there were 18,073 people with HIV or AIDS living in Dallas County, with a prevalence rate of 690.3 per 100K people, over twice Texas’s rate of 320.4.

Keep in mind that Richardson’s actual rates, as a suburb, will be lower. In 2017, 19,084 people in Dallas County were diagnosed with chlamydia, at a rate of 728.9. The gonorrhea and syphilis rates were 271.4 and 90.6.

Health officials are worried about the rising rates and urge every sexually active person to always use protection and get tested regularly, even if they are not experiencing symptoms. Most STIs are asymptomatic in the early stages, but if left undetected and untreated, they can do irreversible damage to the body. Plus, they can be passed on to others.

Richardson doesn’t have many clinics, but there are many more options in Dallas and the other suburbs (and it might be easier to find free STD testing in the larger city). The PrimaCare Medical Center on Plano Rd does STD testing.

There’s a Planned Parenthood in Plano. They test for STIs and treat all except HIV, and the fee is on a sliding scale. And the Safe Lab STD Testing Centers in Garland also offers screening.

While recent changes have been made to the educational program that now includes discussions about the benefits of using a condom, it still does not address the importance of being tested regularly for STDs. Until this is implemented in the city’s sex education program the number of teenagers and young adults infected with a sexually transmitted disease will continue to rise.
