What are the STI test options in Waco,TX?
Waco, Texas ranks as the 78th most sexually diseased state nationwide with a disease prevalence rate of 911.3 cases per 100,000 residents. This means that last year there were approximately 2,179 new STDs diagnosed in the city of Waco alone.
However, even amid the extremely high STD rates in Waco, by staying informed and practicing safe sex with regular STD testing, you and your partner can enjoy a happy and healthy sex life.
Only through outreach and prevention efforts will these rates decline. Across the state services are being deployed to help end the STD epidemic: greater funding, reduction of stigma, rapid testing, counseling services, partner notification services, free STD testing and the implementation of PrEP clinics. Texas law requires minors to obtain parental consent for STD testing.
Waco has locations within the city and in surrounding areas, so whether you want to stay close to home or pair STD testing with other plans it’s easy to do so. You can find a Family Health Center on Washington Avenue or Providence Drive, and there’s a Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas on Ross Avenue.
