St Petersburg STD Testing
According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s annual STD Incidence Report, Pinellas County is seeing unprecedented increases in STD transmission over the course of the past several years. In their most recent report, the CDC cites a rate of 471 chlamydia cases per 100,000 residents, 157.6 cases of gonorrhea per 100,000 residents, and 50.8 cases of syphilis per 100,000 residents. This comes out to an overall rate of 679 STD cases per 100,000 residents–up from 572.9 just five years prior.
As these numbers show no signs of slowing, it is more important than ever that sexually active St. Petersburg residents seek out reliable STD testing services and get tested when appropriate. Remember, STDs including chlamydia and gonorrhea are, more often than not, asymptomatic and show no visible signs of infection. It is possible (and very common) to contract and pass along an STD without ever knowing it. The only way to know for sure if you’ve contracted an STD is to get tested. With Priority STD Testing, you can order a test online, get tested locally, and have results in as little as 24-72 hours. In fact, we have three testing facilities in St. Petersburg alone with several more throughout Southern Florida (1101 34th St. N., 1173 62nd Avenue North, and 6006 49th St N Suite 300). No appointments are required and most patients are in and out of our facilities in under a half hour.
