Connecticut has a reputation as being one of the most affluent and pleasant states in the entire USA. In turn, the town of Trumbull, CT is often regarded as being one of the best places to live in the states.
Nonetheless, residents in Trumbull, CT are subject to the same hazards as are all Americans.
According to the CDC’s statistics, there was a sharp increase in the rates of all major STDs across the entire nation in the four year period between 2013 and 2017. Connecticut was no exception to this nationwide trend, and in this same time period the rates of chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis rose by 27, 25, and a whopping 51 percent respectively.
Granted, you can make the argument that the statistics have risen across the board because both detection methods and data collection have improved in recent years, but it doesn’t really matter—the truth of the matter is that STDs are a real problem in Trumbull, CT and everywhere else.
Prevention is key, but when that fails, early detection is crucial.
The Center for Disease Control monitors the rates of STDs across all 50 states and in 2017 Connecticut ranked 45th for syphilis, 40th for gonorrhea, and 27th for chlamydia.
DOCS Urgent Care is one walk-in clinic in nearby Bridgeport that anyone in Trumbull worried about their sexual health can go to get tested. Most major insurance plans are accepted and affordable payment plans may be able to be worked out for the uninsured.
There have also been many public outreach campaigns and mobile health clinics in Southern Connecticut in recent years that have even offered free STD testing, but these are infrequent. When they are an option, they also may not offer the level of confidentiality that you covet.
