What are the STI test options in Trenton,NJ?
As far as bacterial infections in New Jersey go, Mercer was the only county whose rates did not increase between 2012 and 2016. But let’s not celebrate until those numbers go way down.
In 2016, Mercer County had 1,781 cases of chlamydia and 439 of gonorrhea. There were 26 cases of early latent syphilis, 16 of late latent syphilis, and 13 of secondary syphilis.
At the end of 2017, there were 706 people with HIV living in Mercer County, and 833 with AIDS, most over 45. 38 people were diagnosed in 2017.
Health officials blame the high STD rates on the large percentage of people who cannot afford health care, as well as lack of sex education.
There are some options in and around Trenton, including at least one organization that provides free STD testing for HIV only. Infectious Disease Consultants, P.C. screen for STDs in their clinic on Whitehorse Mercerville Rd. The Henry J. Austin Health Center, on Ewing St, provides HIV testing and counseling. You can find Planned Parenthood on State St. They test for all STIs and treat all except HIV.
