Additional STD Test Statistics in Yonkers, NY

In 2013 the city and surrounding county reported 85 incidents of HIV and an alarming 3,184 cases of Chlamydia and is ranked among the top four counties in the state for its high STI rate as of June 2015. With these numbers continuing to rise, it has never been so important for everyone to get tested regularly for all of the STDs.

While city and county officials expected to see high Chlamydia and Gonorrhea rates, they were surprised by an increasing number of Syphilis and HIV cases that are being reported. With new campaigns launched to help stress the importance of testing, officials are hopeful that the city’s STI rates will start decreasing. This won’t happen until everyone understands how important it is to get checked for any of the sexually transmitted diseases every 6 weeks or so.

Some alarming statistics released by city officials include;

  • In 2013 there were 3,665 reported cases of STDs in the city and county.
  • The rate of infection per 100,000 people in the county was 381.11 as of 2013.
  • In 2007 there were 402 cases of Chlamydia reported in females between ages 10 to 19.
  • In 2006 the number of women infected with HIV surpassed men almost 2 to 1.

STD Testing and Sexual Health Education in Yonkers, NY

Comprehensive sexual education classes are the best way to prevent spreading any of the STDs, and city leaders are currently “modernizing” its current programs.

In response to an alarming increase in the number of STDs reported each year, city leaders have implemented updated curriculums in the classrooms. While abstinence is still taught and emphasized, these classes also include information on safe sexual practices. Sexually transmitted diseases are also covered, along with how these viruses are spread.

Even though these classes are helping to inform new students entering into public school systems, it doesn’t help older adults who still do not understand all of the risks. Preventing the spread of sexually transmitted infections requires more than using protection or abstaining, citizens also have to get tested regularly. Not all STDs are transmitted through penetration during intercourse, and some do not display any noticeable symptoms until after a disease has been accidentally spread.

This means that while practicing abstinence or safe sex will prevent pregnancies and lower your risk of contracting a STI, it will not keep you completely safe. The only way to be sure you haven’t contracted a sexually transmitted infection is to be tested regularly.

This is also why regular Herpes and HIV testing in Yonkers is so important, and this can also help to stop flare-ups from occurring.

Sexually Transmitted Diseases and Demographics in Yonkers, NY

Statistics show that teens are becoming sexually active at a younger age, and with an estimated 7 out of 10 by the time they are 19. With so many teens engaging in intercourse it is important to have comprehensive education programs in a classroom to ensure that everyone understands the importance of scheduled testing.

The recent closing of several community centers and loss of funding is also making it difficult for everyone to get tested regularly, especially in lower income neighborhoods. Financially depended families often find that it is almost impossible to afford testing, and with a noticeable decrease in funding it has gotten even harder for these families.

Stereotypes that still surround certain STDs often cause those potentially infected to feel embarrassed or ashamed, and many young adults simply feel that a sexually transmitted disease could never happen to them. Strong conservative and religious beliefs and values that are prevalent in the area are resulting in a lack of guidance and counseling is contributing to the high STD rate in the area.

Until everyone understand how STDs are passed and the importance of being tested regularly,officials and city leaders can expect to continue to see an abnormally high rate of infection.
