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.

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.

STD Testing and Sexual Health Education in Trenton, NJ

Students grades 1 through 12 must take 150 hours of health and family life education classes before graduation, though there can be exceptions at the parents’ request. These progressive classes are spread out in an effort to keep up with the new changes and challenges students face every year. The STD rates among teens and young adults are still rising, along with the number of unplanned pregnancies.

The state does not require public school systems to use abstinence based material. State law does mandate that the sex education programs must stress that abstinence is the best policy.

Though condom sales are increasing among young adults, many are still not aware of the importance of always using protection. Regular Herpes testing in Trenton is rarely covered. Regular HIV testing in Trenton is discussed, and is helping to decrease new cases.

Sexually Transmitted Diseases and Demographics in Trenton, NJ

One of the biggest contributing factors to the rise in STD rates is budget cuts to health care. The state cut funding to several community STI clinics and this forced the majority of them to close. Adding to the problems is the fact that Medicaid no longer covers regular STD testing, and this means that many simply can’t afford the fees.
