What are the STI test options in Sioux Falls,SD?

Health officials are concerned about the rising STD rates in the Sioux Falls area, even among children, and they worry it could lead to a health crisis. They say that people became lax about using protection after the AIDS scare of the ’80s ebbed, and funding for public health was cut.

Also, since some STDs are asymptomatic, people might not come in to be tested until the disease has progressed, and they may have passed it on to other people.

The Sioux Falls area had 29 HIV cases in 2016, as well as 1,225 chlamydia cases, 376 gonorrhea cases, and 38 syphilis cases. A local campaign called Protect Your Parts attempts to fight the rising STD rates by teaching people how and where to get tested, educating people about risk factors, and pointing out where to get free condoms. There are often free STD testing events as well.

There are a few STD-testing clinics in Sioux Falls. The South Dakota Department of Health provides HIV and STD testing and counseling. Contact their office on North West Ave. They also operate a family-planning office at the Falls Community Health Center, which offers STI screening on a sliding fee scale. You can find them on Main Ave.

Heartland Health Resource Center, on 49th St, provides rapid HIV testing, and they provide monetary assistance for treatment.

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.

What same-day testing locations are available in Sioux Falls, SD?

How much will STD testing cost in Sioux Falls, SD?

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.

Sexual Health Education

STD Testing and Sexual Health Education in Sioux Falls, SD

Like many cities across the nation sex education classes are not necessary for graduation, nor are public schools required to teach it. While schools do have to teach classes designed to help students develop strong characters, this generally only involves discussions concerning the benefits of abstinence.

Without the information teens and adults need to stay safe, many will unknowingly contract a sexually transmitted disease. Since the misconception that the only way to contract a STD is through sexual activity is prevalent among teens, many residents do not recognize the signs and symptoms even when it is occurring to them. This makes it possible for the virus to continue to be spread.

Along with implementing sexual education courses in the public schools, students and their parents need to understand the importance of scheduled health screenings. Regular Herpes testing in Sioux Falls can stop the spread of this virus that is often found in teens and young adults. Regular HIV testing in Sioux Falls is also vital for continued good health, especially considering the high rate of infection in the area.

Sexually Transmitted Diseases and Demographics in Sioux Falls, SD

There are several demographical factors that are affecting the STD percentages for the area, and one is the relatively remote location of the city. The state is sparsely populated with little variation in activities for teens and young adults which can lead to boredom and a willingness to try new things. This often includes engaging in sexual activity, and since the majority of teens and young adults do not understand how STDs are spread they don’t realize that they are putting themselves at risk.

Along with a lack of education, a spike in tourism is also driving up the number of infections reported each year. Often visitors to the area are infected with a STI and simply pass it on to unsuspecting residents. What is upsetting to health officials is that this could easily be prevented if residents understand the dangers associated with unprotected sex and how sexually transmitted diseases are spread.

One of the reasons attributed to the growing number of new Syphilis and HIV/AIDS cases is the resurgence in intravenous drug use. This is increasingly becoming a problem in older males, many of whom never tested positive for an STD until recently. Sharing needles is the leading cause, along with a loss of inhibitions regarding sex. As the euphoric feelings from the drugs set in, it is not uncommon for people to forget to practice safe sex.

Better Sexual Health in Sioux Falls, SD

While the beauty of the countryside can make you forget about your health, still stop at one of the community facilities. If the long lines are the reason you are putting off this important health checkup, you can easily avoid this problem. STI clinics can give you the answers you need, and you’ll appreciate the discretion.
