What are the STI test options in Scaggsville,MD?

The number of persons contracting STDs and HIV in Howard County continues to increase rapidly. A significant number of people don’t know their sexual health status, and that’s leading to increased transmissions.

According to a 2016 STI Surveillance Analysis by Howard County Health, chlamydia and gonorrhea reached record-high rates in a decade. In 1996, the county recorded 62 chlamydia incidences as compared to 271 cases in 2016, a 300% increase. The rate of gonorrhea spiked by 13% over the same period.

STD cases were rampant among adolescents of 15-19 years, with 29% of them testing positive to chlamydia in 2016. Fourteen percent had gonorrhea.

To intervene in the spread of STD/HIV, Howard County Health manages the Ryan White Part A & B programs that provide primary STD/HIV medical care and support services. Through the programs, infected people may receive testing and treatment services, housing opportunities (HOPWA), medical transportation, food assistance, and more.

Scaggsville residents who’d like to know their STD/HIV status by visiting the Howard County Health Department STD Clinic at 8930 Stanford Blvd, Columbia.  You may also receive primary STD care services at the Planned Parenthood Clinic in Baltimore, located at 330 N Howard St.

Alternatively, you may visit one of the Baltimore City Health Department’s STD clinics: The Easter STD specialty center at 1200 E Fayette St and the Druid STD clinic at 1515 W North Ave.

Several other clinics in Scaggsville may provide free STD testing services, but they may only test for a limited number of STDs. Other shortcomings include clinics may operate at inconvenient hours and you might incur extra charges for doctor consultations.
