What are the STI test options in Southaven,MS?

Mississippi is known for having some of the highest rates for STD infections and teen birth rates in the U.S. In DeSoto County, where Southaven is located, it was estimated that 395.8 per 100,000 residents reported cases of chlamydia, 101 residents per 100,000 reported gonorrhea infections, and 12.7 per 100,000 reported cases of syphilis in 2015.

In 2015, 9.2 per 100,000 residents in DeSoto were also diagnosed with HIV, which is almost half of the average reported across the whole of Mississippi.

HIV diagnosis is particularly high for men who experienced male-to-male sexual contact, with 85% of cases reported linked to this cause. In 2017, 43% of newly diagnosed cases were young adults between 20-29, with the highest proportion of HIV cases reported in black males aged 20-24.

With the introduction of the CHART program, the state health department provides evidence-based, medically accurate, and age-appropriate sexual health education to reduce the number of sexually transmitted infections in younger generations.

Luckily, testing and treatment for STDs are available across county health department clinics, including the DeSoto county health department on Highway 51 South and the Southaven clinic on Northwest Drive.

Some services may be free or low-cost, but tests may be on a walk-in or appointment only basis and the days or times available may not suit your requirements. Free STD testing may be available in some clinics, but there might be additional costs for treatments or follow-up consultations. People will also know why you’re there if you’re attending an STD clinic.
