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.

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 Richmond, VA?

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 Richmond, VA?

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 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.

Better Sexual Health in Richmond, VA
