Farmington STD Testing

According to the St. Francois County Department of Health, the number of reported STD cases in Farmington, Missouri, has steadily increased over the past decade.  In just 2020 alone, there were 244 cases of chlamydia, 65 cases of gonorrhea, and 6 cases of syphilis reported. While these numbers are concerning, it is essential to note that many cases of STDs go unreported, meaning the actual number of infections in the community may be much higher.

STD testing is crucial in preventing the spread of these infections and protecting the health of individuals and communities. Fortunately, there are several options for STD testing in Farmington, including local health clinics and private medical providers.

We recommended that sexually active individuals get tested for STDs at least once a year and more frequently if they engage in high-risk behaviors such as having unprotected sex or having multiple sexual partners. Early detection and treatment of STDs are vital in preventing further spread and complications.

Getting tested regularly is essential to knowing your status. Priority STD Testing and other local medical providers offer accessible and confidential testing, counseling, and education to help individuals stay informed and protected against STDs. Don’t hesitate to get tested and take control of your sexual health today.
