What are the STI test options in Spring,TX?
As essentially part of Houston, Spring shares that city’s STD problems, though Spring’s rates are probably not as high since it’s a suburb and not as densely populated as Houston. In 2017, 1,104 people in Harris County were diagnosed with HIV, at a rate of 23.7 per 100K people. That’s a high rate, but the good news is that it’s been going down, though slowly.
Also in 2017, there were 26,585 cases of chlamydia in Harris County, at a rate of 571.4. Over half of those infected with chlamydia in Texas are women, but their rates are steady while the men’s rates are climbing.
The 2017 rates of gonorrhea and syphilis in Harris County were 182.1 and 59.3.
There are a few STD-testing clinics in Spring, and even more options in Houston. A faith-based nonprofit provides free STD testing, but you’ll need to call ahead for an appointment.
Planned Parenthood is located on Louetta Rd. They test for STIs and treat all of them except for HIV, at a low cost depending on your income. NextCare Urgent Care, on Rayford Rd, does STD testing.
