Why Should Charlotte Residents Get Tested?
According to the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services and STI Surveillance Reports produced by the CDC, Mecklenburg County boasts a much higher rate of STI and STD cases across the board than state and national averages. Most recently, new chlamydia cases in Mecklenburg County stood at 819.9 compared to the North Carolina average of 612.2 and national average of 528.8. Even more shocking, primary/secondary syphilis cases in Mecklenburg County as well as HIV infection cases were measured at a rate more than double the state and national average. With statistics like these on the rise in Mecklenburg County, we cannot stress enough the importance of getting proper STD testing when appropriate.
How Much Will It Cost?
The cost of testing depends on the type and/or number of tests you’re wishing to have conducted. Our individual tests (chlamydia, gonorrhea, hepatitis B, hepatitis C, herpes I/II, HIV 1 and 2, syphilis, and trichomoniasis) run between $49 and $109 each. We also offer a twin panel test for chlamydia and gonorrhea which costs $129 (a savings of $49) as well as an all-in-one ten-panel test which costs $198 (a savings of $405).
