What are the STI test options in Wilmington,NC?

Sexually transmitted diseases are on the rise in New Hanover County.

In 2013 there were 964 new cases of Chlamydia reported. By 2017 the number had jumped to 1,257. Syphilis has also increased. While only one case was reported in 2013, 10 new diagnoses were reported in the first six months of 2018. The numbers aren’t any better for Gonorrhea and HIV.

What’s the best way to stay healthy? Get tested! The county’s health department offers education and testing services for low or no cost.

The city of Wilmington has many options for public and private STD testing: from Planned Parenthood located on Tradd Court, to Coastal Horizons Center Incorporated on Shipyard Boulevard, and the New Hanover County Health Department on South 17th Street.

The university’s campus health center also provides testing, treatment and information on protection. Students might also qualify for free STD testing but you will need to show your college i.d.

Reviewed by Our Medical Team
Your trusted source for comprehensive and unbiased STD testing locations, statistics, and resources. Backed by board-certified physicians and aligned with CDC guidelines, we're committed to providing accurate, up-to-date information to empower your health choices.

What STD tests do I need?

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention1 (CDC) recommends screening for the most common STDs, including chlamydia, gonorrhea, hepatitis B, hepatitis C, syphilis, herpes 1, herpes 2, and HIV for both men and women. In addition, the CDC suggests women get screened for trichomoniasis.

SaferSTD recommends searching for locations that offer a 10-test panel which tests for the most common bacteria and viral STDs in the U.S. with additional premium add-ons like early HIV detection, if needed.

When should I get tested?

The CDC2 provides detailed STD testing information as to when you should get tested. In summary, you should get tested today if you are sexually active, never been tested before, have had unprotected sex in the past, or if you exhibit symptoms. 

According to the World Health Organization3, the majority of STI cases reported every day, more than one million, are asymptomatic; another reason to get tested today.

You should get tested again in 90 days to rule out STDs that have specific exposure waiting times, including HIV.

How are STD tests done?

STD testing can be a quick and simple process, depending on the type of test you choose and where you get tested. Some may require an oral or genital swab, a urine test or blood sample, or a physical exam to check your genital area for signs of an STD.

SaferSTD has identified preferred providers that require only a urine test, a blood sample, or both without a physical exam.

How fast do I get my results?

The speed at which you receive your STD testing results depends on where you get tested. Before you choose your location, find out how long testing results will take. 

At-home STD testing results are usually 3-5 business days, depending on the manufacturer of your test. You also need to take into account the amount of time it takes to receive the test or pick one up, perform the test, and ship it back, before the lab can analyze your results and report back to you. 

If you test at a public facility such as a neighborhood clinic, you may have to wait a week, if not more for the results, which could delay treatment. If you test through a private facility, they have the fastest turnaround within 1-3 business days. 

SaferSTD has researched and identified the most accredited and most reputable testing locations. Click here to find a preferred location near you.

What same-day testing locations are available in Wilmington, NC?

Some STD testing clinics offer same-day walk-in options without an appointment. Below are nearby preferred locations that offer this option.

How much will STD testing cost in Wilmington, NC?

The cost of STD testing depends on whether you select private, public, or at-home testing, as well as the type of test(s) you need.

Several at-home STD options and public testing locations can cost up to $250, with most on the higher end, depending on the brand and type of testing. Public testing fees also vary based on income and welfare eligibility. 

With private testing, you may save money on a low-cost comprehensive 10-test panel that tests for the most common bacterial and viral STDs in the United States. 

SaferSTD has researched and identified reputable locations that offer upfront pricing without hidden fees. Click here to find a preferred location near you.

STD Testing and Sexual Health Education in Wilmington, NC

The city offers a number of great resources to educate its community surrounding the topic of Sexual health, safe sex practices, and STD’s all together. For example, for those who are interested, there are a number of pages on a number of the city’s websites outlining educational and statistical information regarding STD’s, safe sex practices and prevention of STD’s all together. Additionally, sexual education is a topic that is taught within the public education system. The city also provides free STD testing to its community to help promote sexual health awareness.

However, within the 2015 HIV and STD Surveillance Report conducted by the health department of North Carolina, the number of young individuals contracting STD’s were significantly higher than any other age groups. More specifically, individuals who were between the ages 15-24 typically made up more than 55% of all cases. When looking at the previous 5 years, it became clear that this was a recurring issue, and that those between the ages of 15 and 24 were most at risk.

Due to this, many community members feel that more can and should be done to educate the younger individuals residing within the state. There have been discussions about teaching sexual education at younger ages, undergoing a public marketing campaign to educate the community of the severity of STD’s, and even discussing this matter with parents within the state.

Sexually Transmitted Diseases and Demographics in Wilmington, NC

The city is populated with a number of diverse individuals and that is what makes the city so special. Unfortunately, while taking a closer look at ethnicities associated with sexually transmitted diseases including Gonorrhea, Syphilis, and Chlamydia, one stood out more significantly than others.

Over the past 5 years, African Americans made up more than 54% of all Gonorrhea cases within the state. Of course, the percentage varied between the years 2011 and 2015, but was generally around 55%.

The percentage of African Americans contracting Chlamydia offered a lower percentage, yet still high overall. For example, throughout the years 2011 – 2015, between 37.8 and 41.6 percent of all chlamydia cases were from those who described themselves as African American Ethnicity.

The data also revealed that females were more at risk for some STD’s than males. In 2015, the number of reported chlamydia cases from males was 14,586, while the number of reported cases for females was 39,784 for the entire state. This puts females at more than 2X the risk than males for Chlamydia. For other STD’s such as Gonorrhea, the number of cases between males and females was about equal.

Overall, African Americans and those between the ages of 15-24 are the most at risk for contracting an STD. The rising number of STD cases is something that is alarming and should not be taken lightly, and the most at-risk individuals for Contracting STD’s should be the main target for awareness of information and resources readily available to the public.
