Anchorage AK STD Testing

According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, sexually transmitted diseases are once again on the rise nationwide. And Alaska is right there at the top of the list. Per capita, Alaska ranked tops in the nation for chlamydia cases (a dubious record held annually since 2001) and second in gonorrhea cases only to Mississippi. In 2018, Alaska saw 6,159 cases of chlamydia and 2,247 cases of gonorrhea. That equates to a rate of 832.5 cases of chlamydia per 100,000 residents and 303.7 cases of gonorrhea per 100,000 residents.

Bottom line: it has never been more important for Anchorage residents and those throughout Alaska to seek out a reliable testing provider and get tested. Remember, most STDs display no visible symptoms and can be contracted and passed without either party having any idea. The only way to know for sure if you’ve contracted an STD is to find a reliable provider of STD testing services and get tested. With Priority STD, you can select the test(s) you need and get tested today at our Anchorage testing facility (4120 Laurel St #103) or any other participating facility in the state.
