What are the STI test options in Richmond,VA?

The number of sexually transmitted diseases is rising across this independent city.

To help combat the growing STD rates, the Virginia Department of Health has community partners to help assess and promote healthy living. Services are also being offered to those who are uninsured or underinsured.

For the fourth year in a row rates of STDs have increased across the county. Not only have the rates been increasing – with gonorrhea up 67% and syphilis increased by 76%, for example – the associated health risks are increasing. Gonorrhea cases are beginning to show a resistance to antibiotics.

Syphilis, a disease that was rare two decades ago, is seeing a resurgence and is particularly harmful to pregnant women because in congenital syphilis it can lead to infant deaths. Chlamydia remains the most commonly contracted STD, with reports showing over 1.5 million cases diagnosed. Without proper and timely treatment, many of these diseases can lead to long-term health damages.

Richmond offers many public and private std testing options for those who make their sexual health a priority. Free STD testing is one but fees may still apply that are not covered by insurance.

Richmond City Health District is located on East Main Street and the Minority Health Consortium Incorporated can be found on East Clay Street. From the Daily Planet on West Grace Street to the Capital Area Health Network on North 25th Street, a quick search will help you find a testing center.

Additional STD Test Statistics in Richmond, VA

The historic city of Richmond is currently seeing a spike in STD rates. In the first quarter of 2015 the city had the dubious distinction of ranking in the top ten cities for its high rate of STDs. With an estimated rate of 1544.39 cases per 100,000 residents the city is currently ranked 7th, and health officials expect these numbers to continue to rise.

The recent data only emphasizes the growing concern that residents are not taking their sexual health seriously, and with STDs numbers continuing to rise city leaders are struggling to find a way to curb the spread of the transmittable diseases.

One of the best ways to slow down the spread of STDs is by getingt tested regularly, but health officials are finding it difficult to get this important information out.

In 2013 Richmond reported a HIV/AIDS rate of 1,162 per 100,000 residents which puts the southern capital among the top twenty cities in the nation.

Some of the other recently released statistics that is causing concern among city health officials includes;

STD Testing and Sexual Health Education in Richmond, VA

One of the best methods of stopping the spread of STDs is to educated students and parents, but unfortunately the city of Richmond does not have a comprehensive sexual education program in place in its public school system.

Like many other cities in the South, it relies on the federally sponsored abstinence only program to help curb the growing number of teen pregnancies and sexually transmitted diseases. While abstinence will prevent teen pregnancies, it will not completely stop the spread of all sexually transmitted diseases.

Some viral infections can be easily transmitted through casual contact, and not all STDs immediately display noticeable symptoms making it easier to spread the diseases to friends and loved ones. Without comprehensive sexual education in place in the classrooms, most students will never know that they could be potentially at risk.

Regular Herpes testing in Richmond is important, especially for students who generally find themselves at a greater risk of contracting the disease simply by being in school.

Regular HIV testing in Richmond is also vital to your continued good health.

Sexually Transmitted Diseases and Demographics in Richmond, VA

Demographics have always played a key role in a city’s STD rates, and this is certainly true in this old southern city. The line between influential and lower income neighborhoods is sharply defined, and the recent statistics show that this is reflected in the area’s STD rates.

The number of community health centers in the city’s lower income neighborhoods is making it difficult for residents to get tested regularly, along with an inability to pay. Budget cuts has left these neighborhoods without close and affordable health care, which is also contributing to the problem.

Many of the city’s African American residents are also testing positive for an STD more often, and much of this is blamed on a lack of education. Without comprehensive sexual education programs in the classrooms, many residents do not realize the dangers associated with unprotected sex. The lack of education is also making it difficult for city health care workers to stress the importance of spending the money on regular STD testing.

It is not only lower income residents who are affected by the growing number of STDs, but Caucasian men are also seeing an increase in Syphilis diagnoses. Much of this is blamed on an increase in intravenous drug use, and without regular testing this devastating disease will continue to spread.

The shame and embarrassment many residents feel if they test positive for a viral infection. Until there is a comprehensive sexual education program in place, these factors will continue to influence the city’s high STD rate.
