What are the STI test options in Rio Rancho,NM?

Rio Rancho—or the City of Vision—is part of the Albuquerque metropolitan Statistical area (AMSA). Along with Santa Fe, Las Vegas NM, many smaller towns, and surprisingly even Albuquerque. This incredibly scenic stretch of America harbors a slice of historic Route 66. Within a beautiful hours drive you have every amenity anyone could hope for, and still all the privacy in the world.

The region is celebrated for their arts, culture, and their amazing food. Less celebrated, New Mexico’s rank of 5th on the list for most sexually diseased states.

According to the most recent data, gonorrhea, syphilis, and chlamydia are all sharply on the rise in the AMSA area. Chlamydia, the most common STI, was reported at a rate of 435.6 cases per 100,000 people. And the HIV rates in Santa Fe—within AMSA—are currently higher than all other counties in New Mexico at 271 per 100,000 people.

The New Mexico Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STD) Prevention Program seeks to reduce and prevent these high occurrences of STIs. Health officials of the region believe the high influx of infections is partially due to today’s dating or “hook-up” culture. The CDC fears the trend will only grow as antibiotic-resistant strains of gonorrhea are now surfacing.

Residents seeking screening have options. Some locations offer free std tests and others results in as little as 1-2 days. Particularly around STD awareness month in April. The Rio Rancho community has affordable clinics near you including Rio Rancho Family Clinic on Unser Boulevard, Minute Clinic on South East, NextCare Urgent Care on Rio Rancho Boulevard, and more.

To find the best services and location for you, use our search tools below to compare location features across Rio Rancho clinics with our easy-to-read chart.

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 Rio Rancho, NM?

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 Rio Rancho, NM?

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 Rio Rancho, NM

Even though national statistics showed that the state had one of the highest teen pregnancy rates in the nation, and STD percentages were climbing public school districts are still not required to teach comprehensive and medically accurate sex education classes. In the school districts where there are sex education programs, most focus on abstinence as being the best method of preventing pregnancy and STD infections.

Information on contraceptives and their importance is not discussed, and most students do not realize that it is possible to contract a STD without engaging in sex. This is one of the reasons why Herpes infections are so common, since the virus can be easily spread through casual contact. Not only is the lack of education putting students’ health at risk, but also that of everyone they come into contact with.

Not only are students unaware of how STDs are spread, they also do not understand how important it is to be tested regularly. Currently regular HIV testing in Rio Rancho is the only way to detect this potentially deadly disease, and this applies to everyone in the metro city and county. Regular Herpes testing in Rio Rancho is also important, and it is the best way to slow and eventually stop the spread of the virus through area high schools.

Sexually Transmitted Diseases and Demographics in Rio Rancho, NM

There are several reasons why the STD rates are continuing to rise in the city and county, but the main one is the lack of information available to students and adults.

Since the state does not require comprehensive sex education programs in its public schools, the majority of students graduate without understanding how STDs are transmitted. Most teens and young adults do not even know that they might be at risk. If residents do not think that their health is in danger most will not get tested, even during regular physical exams.

Recent budget cuts to state and local health care programs are also contributing to the problem. Medicare and other insurance plans no longer pay for STI testing, and this is making it difficult for many residents to afford the simple procedure. These same budget cuts have also forced the free community clinics to operate on shorter hours, and this has resulted in long lines and an inability to make sure that everyone is getting the care that they need.

Strong religious and conservative beliefs have resulted in feelings of embarrassment and shame, especially among teens and older adults. Teenagers are often afraid to admit that they are sexually active, while older residents are embarrassed to find that they might have contracted a sexually transmitted disease. As long as residents are too ashamed to be seen at a STI clinic the number of incidents will continue to rise in the area.
