What are the STI test options in Richmond,TX?

Texas has regions with high STD rates, but Richmond’s are not too high. In 2017, there were 1,499 people living with HIV or AIDS in Fort Bend County, with a prevalence rate of 196 per 100K people, well under the Texas rate of 320.4.

Also in 2017, 2,857 people in Fort Bend County were diagnosed with chlamydia, at a rate of 373.5. The gonorrhea and syphilis rates were 93 and 19.

But if you’re sexually active, the only way to know your sexual health status for sure is to get tested routinely, even if you are not experiencing symptoms. Most STIs are asymptomatic in the beginning, but they go on to cause irreversible damage to your body.

And of course, you could unknowingly pass the disease on to others. Condoms also drastically reduce the chances of passing on an STD, but they may not prevent herpes.

There is free STD testing available at the county level. Note that public clinics are, well, public and often have long waits, increasing the likelihood that someone may see you there. If that bothers you, you might want to explore other options.

The AccessHealth Richmond Clinic on Austin St provides STI testing and treatment. The CVS MinuteClinic also does basic screenings.

STD Testing and Sexual Health Education in Richmond, TX

The idyllic city of Richmond has recently begun to address the growing number of teens and young adults who are infected with a STD, and the independent school system is working with neighborhood health care centers to help educated students about the dangers of unprotected sex.
