Columbia MD STD Testing

A study by The Maryland Department of Health Center for STI Prevention reveals that Maryland has the 12th highest rate of both chlamydia and gonorrhea in the nation. Nearby Baltimore actually has the not-so-coveted title of most infected city in the United States with a rate of 2,004 reported cases per 100,000 residents. Numbers are less threatening in Howard County where the rate sits at 195 cases of gonorrhea and 948 cases of chlamydia per 100,000. Still, with numbers in Columbia and across the state on the rise year after year, there is no better time than now to find a reliable STD testing service and get tested.

The only way to know for sure if you’ve contracted a sexually transmitted disease is to get tested.
