What are the STI test options in Rock Hill,SC?
South Carolina has some of the highest STD rates in the US, as does the Charlotte metropolitan area, which Rock Hill, though across the state border, is a part of. But what Rock Hill health experts are most concerned about is the fact that STD rates are rising among teens, even though teen pregnancy rates have gone down.
Health officials blame a lack of sex education, as many teens don’t know they can get STIs from oral sex. Also, many people from low-income families cannot afford regular health care and might not know how to find low-cost and free STD testing.
In 2017, there were 476 people living with HIV or AIDS in York County, with a prevalence rate of 184.1 per 100K people, less than half of the South Carolina rate of 396.1. The same year, 1,400 people in York County were diagnosed with chlamydia, at a rate of 541.5, compared with South Carolina’s rate of 629.4. The gonorrhea and syphilis cases were 160.1 and 11.6.
Rock Hill only has a few STD-testing clinics, but there are more options if you can get to Charlotte or the surrounding areas. First Care Medical Clinic, on Constitution Blvd, provides STD testing and HIV screening and treatment, with free transportation to anyone within a five-mile radius.
