What are the STI test options in Rochester,NY?
Monroe County alone sees approximately 7,000 new cases of just the three most common STDs – chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis – each year. The numbers, when broken down, show both promise and concern in the trends.
Between the years of 2013 and 2017 the rates of infection for gonorrhea declined by 11%, for chlamydia increased by 9%, and for syphilis increased by 191% in Monroe County.
Clinics throughout the city, including Trillium, offer disease transmission prevention services that include needle exchange programs and confidential testing services. Public health officials now recommend routine testing every three to six months as part of a regular health care plan. So don’t wait for the onset of symptoms to seek out medical assistance.
Testing and information are the first and most vital step to maintaining a long and healthy life, free of STDs and their long-term effects. Rochester has many locations throughout the city for STD testing. For example, you can find the MOCHA Center on North Water Street, Action for a Better Community Incorporated on Chestnut Street, and Trillium Health on Central Avenue.
