What are the STI test options in Southeast Hidalgo,TX?

In 2015, Texas was ranked third among states with the highest number of HIV/AIDS diagnoses. Although the overall rate of STDs in the United States has declined substantially from 2016, the cases of gonorrhea, chlamydia, and HIV infections in Southeast Hidalgo, TX, is alarming. It is estimated that one in every twenty sexually active young people in the county has chlamydia. Also, the gonorrhea rate from 2016 has increased by 5.7%, and that of syphilis has increased by 16.6%.

Heterosexual transmission of Chlamydia in Southeast Hidalgo, TX seems to be following an epidemiologic pattern of other STDs such as HIV, gonorrhea, and syphilis, predominately affecting youth age 15-24 years.

Chlamydia is the most common STD in Southeast Hidalgo, TX. The number of newly diagnosed chlamydia cases per 100,000 people in Hidalgo was 3177 in 2013, 3729 in 2017, and 3658 in 2019. According to the statistics, Chlamydia infection rates were highest among adolescents and young adults, and the trend has been increasing since 2010. 67% of reported infections are from adolescents and young adults between the ages of 15 and 24.

Hidalgo County Health and Human Services and Hidalgo County Health Department have always been at the forefront of STDs prevention efforts since their inauguration. These two departments are responsible for STDs prevention, care, and treatment programs in Hidalgo County. The CDC National Center for HIV, STD, and TB prevention also provides essential support services to people living with HIV.

Hidalgo County Health and Human Services provide services such as Chlamydia Testing, HIV testing, Gonorrhea, and Syphilis testing. The facility is also dedicated to providing STD prevention education and counseling services to people living with HIV as well as essential support services necessary in improving and prolonging their lives.

If you think you are at risk of contracting STD, you can visit health facilities such as Solara Hospital McAllen LP. Family and friends living with infected people may visit the Weslaco Rehab Hospital center for counseling. These medical facilities offer comprehensive medical help for all Hidalgo County residents regardless of race, age, gender, or economic status.

There are a number of free STD testing centers in Southeast Hildago, TX that may be offering free testing services to common STDs.

The downside of visiting free STD clinics is that most of them specialize in STD tests, so everyone knows why you are there. Besides not keeping the most convenient hours, free STD clinics may also see patients on a limited schedule, and the waits may be very long.

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 Southeast Hidalgo, TX?

How much will STD testing cost in Southeast Hidalgo, TX?

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.

Additional STD Test Statistics in Southeast Hidalgo, TX

Nestled in the Rio Grande Valley, this small community is currently experiencing the same health crisis as the rest of the state. According to statistics released by the CDC the number of sexually transmitted diseases has been rising at an alarming rate over the past twenty years, and health experts expect this trend to continue.

The number of sexually transmitted diseases in the area is rising each year, and without regular testing, the percentage of residents infected is only expected to increase. With a population below 200,000, according to state census data, the average rate of infection in 2010 was 399 per 100,000 residents. This means that almost half of those living in this close knit community are already infected with a STD.

It is not only Chlamydia and Gonorrhea incidents that are on the rise, but diagnoses for primary and secondary Syphilis are also increasing. More students are testing positive for the Herpes virus each year, and HIV incidents are also on the rise. The good news for the area is that as of 2010 fewer residents were living with AIDS.

Teens and adults of all ages are finding that they are not immune to any of the sexually transmitted diseases, and statistics show that across the board everyone is at risk for contracting a STD. Some of the additional statistics that has city and county health officials worried include,

  • In 2010 3,168 residents tested positive for Chlamydia.
  • The average rate for HIV infections was reported at 10 percent per 100,000 residents in 2010.
  • In 2014 there were 80 diagnoses of HIV in the county, compared to 74 in 2005.

Sexual Health Education

STD Testing and Sexual Health Education in Southeast Hidalgo, TX

In 2011 some state lawmakers introduced a bill that would expand the information currently taught in public schools to include the use of contraceptives in an effort to curb rising teen pregnancy rates and decrease the number of students and young adults who test positive for a sexually transmitted disease each year.

Unfortunately this bill did not pass legislation and the current curriculum taught in the sexual education classes has not changed. Public schools are not required to teach anything other than abstinence, along with the basic facts regarding HIV/AIDS. Even though studies have proven that the best and most effective method at preventing the spread of STDs is to inform residents about the dangers they face, local officials are still extremely reluctant to veer away from the current curriculum.

It is this opposition to change and update sexual education programs in schools that is contributing to the high rate of STDs in teens and young adults, and it is also affecting older residents as well. Not all STDs are passed solely through penetration during intercourse some can be easily spread through casual contact. Without the information needed to protect themselves, school and city officials can expect to see STD rates continue to rise.

This is one of the reasons regular Herpes testing in Southeast Hidalgo is so important for students health, since the virus can be easily spread without engaging in any sexual contact. Regular HIV testing in Southeast Hidalgo is also critical for continued good health, especially since the rate of infection keeps rising each year.

Sexually Transmitted Diseases and Demographics in Southeast Hidalgo, TX

Located along the U.S. and Mexican border, the small bedroom community of Southeast Hidalgo is currently dealing with a high rate of HIV/AIDs infections, along with the rest of the commonly transmitted STDs. There are several demographical factors that are affecting these rates, which include the community’s relatively remote location.

Situated along the U.S.-Mexican border the Rio Grande Valley is a nature lover’s paradise, but it’s remote location also makes it difficult for health officials to reach everyone. There are also problems with language barriers in the large Hispanic community, along with a deep mistrust of any government official.

Undocumented residents are often afraid to visit a local health clinic, even if they know that they have a STD. This also applies to the large number of migrant workers who live in the area, and often come across the border on work visas during the spring and fall planting and harvest seasons.

The state and county’s reluctance to update the information currently being taught in the public schools is making it almost impossible for teens and young adults to know how to protect themselves from sexually transmitted diseases, which is also affecting the STD rate for older residents in the city. Until everyone understands how important regular STD testing is for their sexual and overall health, the number of residents infected will continue to rise each year.

Better Sexual Health in Southeast Hidalgo, TX

Before you try one of the locally crafted beers or check out a Viper’s basketball game, it is important to take a few minutes and think about your sexual health. While there are a few community health centers located around the neighborhood, most residents prefer to avoid the long lines and crowded waiting rooms simply hoping that they do not have a STD. Now you can skip the overcrowded community facilities and schedule confidential STD testing with one simple phone call. This way you only need to spend 20 minutes or so at a local lab, and you still get the peace of mind that comes with being responsible for your sexual health.
