Corpus Christi TX STD Testing
Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) are on the rise in Texas and around the country. According to the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, over 2.3 million instances of chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis were recorded in 2017, the fourth consecutive year of growth regarding those illnesses.
Corpus Christi is the biggest city in Nueces County, and a coastal city in southern Texas. In 2018, Corpus Christi was rated ninth in the state according to CDC estimates for the most combined STD cases.
Texas also has the country’s highest recorded number and infection rate of congenital syphilis. More than 28% of all congenital syphilis cases in the United States occurred in Texas, with Public Health District 11, which encompasses Corpus Christi, accounting for about 14% of the state’s total.
There were 145,874 reported chlamydia infections in 2018, at a rate of 508 cases per 100,000 residents, 46,958 gonorrhea cases were recorded with a rate of 163 infections per 100,000 residents, and 2,528 P&S syphilis cases recorded at a rate of 8.8 infections per 100,000 residents.
As these figures continue to rise, it is more vital than ever for sexually active Corpus Christi residents to seek out reputable STD screening and testing facilities to be tested when necessary. Most STDs, including chlamydia and gonorrhea, are asymptomatic and exhibit no obvious indications of infection. It is possible to develop and spread an STD without being aware of it.
The only way to know for certain whether you have an STD is to be tested. Priority STD Testing allows you to book a test online, have it performed at a nearby facility, and have results in as little as one business day.
