What are the STI test options in Victoria,TX?
Victoria has lower STD rates than many other parts of Gulf-coast Texas. In 2017, there were 128 people with HIV or AIDS living in Victoria County, with a prevalence rate of 139 per 100K people, less than half of Texas’s rate of 320.4.
But there are surely people out there who are infected and haven’t been tested yet. There is still a stigma surrounding HIV, especially directed toward gay and bisexual men, and this can make some people reluctant to come into the clinics. But medical professionals are discreet and only want to help you.
In 2017, Victoria County had 453 cases of chlamydia, at a rate of 491.9 per 100K people, a bit under Texas’s rate of 511.6. The gonorrhea and syphilis rates were 122.7 and 11.9.
Health officials urge all sexually active people to use protection every time and get tested often, even if they are not experiencing symptoms.
You may be able to get free STD testing at the county level, but space is limited and you will need to make an appointment. You may also need to show proof of your income to see if you qualify for free services.
Twin Fountains Medical Clinic – Urgent Care has two locations in Victoria, and they provide STI testing and treatment. The Victoria Community Health Center on Hospital Dr also offers STI testing in their lab.
