What are the STI test options in San Antonio,TX?
The STD rates in the San Antonio area hit record rates in 2015 for chlamydia, syphilis, gonorrhea, and HIV.
Located in Bexar County, with a population of little over 1.8 million, more than 13,000 residents were diagnosed with chlamydia and more than 3,900 with gonorrhea. These are the top two STDs in the state of Texas.
The number of reported STDs aren’t slowing down; in fact, they’re growing more rapidly as time goes on, especially for cases of chlamydia, gonorrhea, and primary and secondary syphilis. These cases have been on the rise since 2012, rising more than as 293% in some cases in San Antonio.
The number of STD cases is especially high in adults between the ages of 20 and 29, but everyone who is sexually active should be tested.
The San Antonio Health District recommends that if you have one sexual partner, you should be tested once a year. If you have multiple partners, you should be screened every three to six months. The CDC recommends that all sexually active individuals should be tested for STDs at least once in their life.

There are public options available, such as Planned Parenthood on Charleston Boulevard, and many private options, as well. Some even offer free STD testing but not all sexually transmitted diseases might be covered. Even so, there is no reason not to get checked and protect your sexual health.
