What are the STI test options in Shreveport,LA?

Health changes can be subtle. Many STDs have the ability to be present without one ever realizing they’re infected unless they seek out testing.

For example, chlamydia and gonorrhea can be asymptomatic but they can also leave lasting and real damage if left untreated.

In 2015, STD rates were as high as 695.2 affected persons for every 100,000 residents. This number exceeded the national average, which reported at 478.8 affected persons for every 100,000 residents. From 2014 to 2015 chlamydia rates rose 11.9%, gonorrhea rose 14.5%, and syphilis increased by 21% – an alarming trend.

These rates exceeded the national averages of increase. The state and parish’s rate of increase for chlamydia was 45.2% higher than the national average, while gonorrhea was 14.5% higher than the national average.

To help combat this growing public health concern the state has rolled out programs focused on STD prevention and education. Preventative and educational measures are offered through increased medical availability, social services, and tracking STD statistics. Free STD testing is also being offered at various state health department locations  but only during STD Awareness Month, which fall during the month of April.

From the Philadelphia Center on Centenary Boulevard to the Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals on Old Minden Road, there are testing locations scattered throughout and around Shreveport. The Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center also offers testing on St. Vincent Avenue.

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 Shreveport, LA?

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 Shreveport, LA?

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.

Sexual Health Education

STD Testing and Sexual Health Education in Shreveport, LA

The city still uses the federally funded abstinence only curriculum in its public schools, and while it is being updated it still does not cover the importance of regular testing. Abstinence will prevent pregnancy and it has been effective at lowering the teen birth rate, but with STDs still on the rise among teens and adults the program is not slowing them down.

The lack of information means that students and many of their parents do not understand the importance of regular STD testing, or the means by which these diseases can be passed. Not all infections are spread solely through penetration during intercourse, and not every disease displays immediate symptoms making it even easier to unknowingly transmit the virus.

This is why regular Herpes testing in Shreveport is so important, since the virus can be spread through casual contact. The simple test only takes a few minutes and it can effectively treat and stop the spread of the viral disease. Regular HIV testing in Shreveport should also be a part of your long-term healthcare.

Sexually Transmitted Diseases and Demographics in Shreveport, LA

Demographics play a key role in the STD rates for an area, and this will include social and economic factors, along with gender and age. While STDs were generally only seen in teens and young adults, older men and women are now testing positive for a sexually transmitted disease more often.

Part of the reason for the increasing number of middle age and senior citizens who test positive for a STD is due to living longer and staying healthy. With a larger number of older residents staying sexually active, their chances for contracting a STD drastically increase.

The lack of a comprehensive sexual education program in the public schools makes it difficult for teens and their parents to learn about the importance of regular testing. With the ability for some sexually transmitted diseases to spread simply by casual contact, it is critical that everyone gets tested as part of their regular health exam.

Lower income families often find that they simply can’t afford regular testing, and health officials are also dealing with a language barrier from the increasing number of Hispanic and Asian residents. Until everyone can and does get tested regularly, this southern city will continue to suffer from a high STD rate.
