What are the STI test options in Rochester,MN?

In 2016, Olmsted County had an HIV prevalence rate of 157.1 per 100K people, a bit below Minnesota’s rate of 175.6. In 2017, 635 people were diagnosed with chlamydia, at a rate of 440 per 100K people, almost equal to Minnesota’s rate of 444. The gonorrhea rate in 2017 was 128 and the (primary and secondary) syphilis rate in 2016 was 1.3.  

Minnesota health officials are concerned about the rising rates, especially gonorrhea, which doubled in men between 2013 and 2017. The big problem with gonorrhea is that there is only one medication left that can treat it, and the disease is becoming resistant to the antibiotic.

Health officials urge all sexually active people to use protection every time and to get tested often, even if they are not experiencing symptoms.

Planned Parenthood is located on 7th St. They test for STIs and treat all of them except HIV, and the fee is on a sliding scale. Olmsted County Public Health has an STD-testing clinic on Campus Drive. A faith-based clinic in the area that advises pregnant women provides free STD testing, but there may be a wait.

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 Rochester, MN?

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 Rochester, MN?

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 Rochester, MN

In an effort to stop the spread of STDs state lawmakers passed a bill in 2008 that requires all public schools to teach medically accurate information in its sexual education classes. The bill also states that the classes must present abstinence as the best method of protection, and the information included also must be age appropriate and approved by parents.

This is a start towards helping teens and young adults receive the information they need to protect themselves from many of the sexually transmitted diseases, but it is still not enough to prevent or slow down the spread of STDs. School administrators estimate that at least 50 percent of graduating teens are already sexually active, and the statistics show that young men and women between the ages of 17 to 24 have the highest rate of infection.

Studies also indicate that school districts that do no focus on abstinence as the best method of prevention have lower STD rates overall. This also includes a fewer Herpes incidents which are almost always high in public and private school systems.

Many health officials want to introduce the necessity of regular Herpes testing in Rochester as part of information included in the sexual education classes. Regular HIV testing in Rochester is also critical information students and their parents need to have, especially considering it is still the only way to detect the potentially deadly diseases before symptoms start to appear.

Sexually Transmitted Diseases and Demographics in Rochester, MN

The demographical makeup of the small city of Rochester is mainly Caucasian, who have strong conservative beliefs. While this is common in suburban areas where many of the resources of the “big city” are missing, this does not help the STD rate. Instead the conservative community is still promoting abstinence even though studies around the country have indicated that this is not an effective method at preventing the spread of STDs, and it does little to discourage students from becoming sexually active before marriage.

The staunchly conservative community has actually made it difficult for students and young adults to get the advice or help they need even if they think they might be infected with a sexually transmitted disease. Along with making it difficult to find someone to talk to about these issues, some church leaders are lobbying to end any type of sexual education in the classroom.

The small suburban city also lacks many of the resources that can be found in more populated areas, and this is also having a negative impact of STD rates. The shortage of community health centers has resulted in extremely long lines, along with a fear of being spotted and judged by friends and family. Until these and other problems are addressed the small city can expect to continue to see its STD rates rise each year.
