What are the STI test options in Stamford,CT?

Connecticut has low STD rates compared to the rest of the US, but health officials are worried because those rates are going up. Young people are most at risk, and public health professionals are now targeting high schools and colleges with awareness campaigns, often providing free STD testing and passing out condoms.

While prevention is the main goal, they also want to dispel the stigma surrounding HIV and other STIs so that people are not afraid to seek help.

In 2017, there were 455 people living with HIV or AIDS in Stamford, but health officials worry that there are more out there who do not yet know they are infected. In 2015, Stamford had 389 chlamydia cases, at a rate of 307 per 100K people. The gonorrhea and (primary and secondary) syphilis rates were 43 and 2.

Stamford has a few clinics, including a public clinic that offers free STD testing for HIV only. Planned Parenthood is located on 6th St. They test for STIs and treat all of them except HIV, and the fee is on a sliding scale depending on your income.

CIRCLE CARE Center, on West Ave, provides STI testing, treatment, and counseling. AFC Urgent Care Stamford, on Summer St, tests for gonorrhea, syphilis, chlamydia, herpes, hepatitis C, HIV/AIDS, and HPV.
