Akron STD Testing
According to the Ohio Department of Health, Summit County has one of the highest chlamydia and gonorrhea rates in the state and both are on the rise year over year. In 2015, for example, Summit County reported a rate of 496.5 chlamydia cases and 188.6 gonorrhea cases per 100,000 residents. In 2019, those figures had skyrocketed to 640.8 and 241.2 respectively. These figures are substantially higher than the state average which also climbed from 489.9 to 561.9 for chlamydia and 143.1 to 224.0 for gonorrhea.
Remember, more often than not, sexually transmitted diseases are asymptomatic which means you may very well contract or pass along an STD without even knowing it.
