What are the STI test options in Sarasota,FL?

In 2015, there were 900 people living with HIV or AIDS in Sarasota County, with a rate of 248 per 100K people. This is well below the Florida rate of 615, but make sure you stay safe so those numbers go down. Sarasota’s 2017 rate of bacterial STDs, at 398, is also much lower than Florida’s rate of 684.7. That year, there were 1,148 chlamydia cases and 371 gonorrhea cases in Sarasota County.

The infectious syphilis numbers had gone up sharply, nearly reaches Florida’s rate with 41 cases in 2017, and there was one case of congenital syphilis.

Many health officials blame the rise of syphilis, especially in women, on opioid and meth addiction. Florida has the fifth highest rate of congenital syphilis, and this can be prevented by a simple test and treatment with penicillin. You may even be able to take advantage of free STD testing during local campaigns or special events.

Sarasota has STD-testing clinics and treatment options around the city. Planned Parenthood, on Central Ave, tests for all STIs and provides treatment for all except HIV.

The Florida Department of Health in Sarasota County also provides confidential screening and treatment, and you can find them on Ringling Blvd. The Sarasota Medical Pregnancy Center screens and treats chlamydia and gonorrhea at their Hawthorne St location.

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 Sarasota, FL?

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 Sarasota, FL?

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.

Additional STD Test Statistics in Sarasota, FL

Cases of chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis are on the rise in Sarasota, FL. While other cities and counties have seen greater numbers in cases, Sarasota’s numbers are on the rise, too, and could quickly go up as much as the other cities. Without STD testing, the infections will spread.

  • Chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis cases went from 200 cases in 1994 to 322 cases in 2015.
  • For every 100,000 people living in Sarasota County, 322 of them have chlamydia, gonorrhea, or syphilis.
  • Sarasota has about 53,000 people within the city. That means that potentially half of the 322 cases could be in the city alone.

STD Testing Sarasota, FL

This doesn’t mean that Sarasota is a hotbed of sexually transmitted diseases. In fact, Sarasota has rates significantly lower than other counties and rates of the whole state. While Sarasota jumped up by about 100 cases in 20 years, Florida jumped up over 200 cases in 20 years.

  • HIV and AIDS are having the opposite effect in Sarasota. While STDS are going up, HIV and AIDS cases have dropped significantly.
  • AIDS cases dropped from 20 in 1994 to only 5 cases in 2015. That is a huge drop for Sarasota.
  • HIV cases went from 18 cases in 1994 to 8 cases in 2015. That drop isn’t as large but still an improvement.

Even though the numbers for STDs seem low, it is still important to go to a private STD clinic and get tested for free. STD numbers are on the rise and it is good to put a stop to that rise now instead of when it gets out of hand.

Sexual Health Education

STD Testing and Sexual Health Education in Sarasota, FL

Florida allows schools to teach about sexually transmitted diseases as well as how to prevent them and treat them. It is up to each individual school to determine exactly how they teach these lessons and how much they teach. The law does require schools to teach abstinence as the main option to prevent STDs, but there isn’t a law against teach other prevention methods such as the use of condoms.

  • Abstinence-only says that the safest way to prevent STDS is not having sex.
  • Abstinence-only courses do not teach about using condoms because that might encourage having sex.
  • Abstinence-only classes do not teach about symptoms of STDS because that could also encourage having sex.

Because of the limited laws regarding STD education schools within Sarasota vary widely in what they teach students. Some might stick to the abstinence-only lessons that are required by law and not teach about other prevention methods. Others might teach everything as long as the school superintendent approves the content as age appropriate. Sarasota is a large city with many schools. The school in your neighborhood might be lacking in what it teaches about sexual health and education.

HIV and herpes lessons in school follow the same example. There is no law about not teaching about these diseases, but it is not a requirement. It is up to each individual school to make the choice to teach about HIV testing and herpes testing.

For this reason, it is important to have STD testing available to teenagers. If they do not learn they are more likely to accidentally and unknowingly get an infection and they need a safe, private place to go to find out. These STD clinics will also provide information on the diseases, such as symptoms and prevention suggestions. A teenager does not need parental permission to visit these clinics and get tested.

STD Testing Sarasota, FL

One of the city’s concerns about STDs is that there might be a strain of gonorrhea that isn’t reacting to antibiotics. Clinics and doctors are asked to send a report about any gonorrhea infected patients that aren’t getting better from antibiotic treatment. The idea of an invincible gonorrhea epidemic is scary and one of the many reasons why it is important to be tested for gonorrhea and other STDs on a regular basis as long as you are sexually active.

The widely different sexual education lessons provided in local schools makes it difficult to keep STD cases on the decline. Clinics can not only help with testing, but also help teach students about STDS, HIV, AIDS, and herpes in ways that their schools have not.

Sarasota has many options available for free STD testing and even several groups that go around providing classes on sexual health outside of the classroom. These courses are for teens and even adults that want to learn more about the diseases when they learned so little in school. Perhaps they have a child with an STD and want a better understanding. Outside of the school, Sarasota does care about prevention and treatment of STDs.

Getting an STD test in Sarasota, FL is easy. All it takes a simple, quick phone call to a free STD testing clinic. The tests take only a few moments of your time. These brief and easy tests will help Sarasota keep the number of cases down or eventually eliminate them altogether.

Sarasota has one of the lowest STD rates in the state of Florida and you should proud of your city for this feat. The lack of sexual education options besides abstinence-only classes is potentially harming this feat. If teenagers do not learn about STDS, HIV, AIDS, and herpes early on then they risk getting the diseases and making the numbers rise again. This is why it is important to schedule confidential STD testing.

It only takes one phone call and a few minutes of your time at a nearby lab, and soon you can be back to enjoy the warm sunshine.
