St. Louis Holds Top Spot For STD Rates

Free STD Testing St Louis

Known for its tourist attractions- city museums, restaurants, the Arch and of course Cardinal baseball, St. Louis now holds one ranking that is perhaps the least attractive to tourists and residents alike. That’s right, coming in at #1 in the United States, St. Louis, MO is the top city for sexually transmitted disease.

According to statistics, St. Louis is number 1 in the US for Chlamydia and number 2 for gonorrhea. It holds the number 5 spot for STD infections HIV and syphilis. Of course numbers will be higher as the rankings are based on diagnosed, reported cases and many people with no symptoms go undiagnosed and untreated.

As of 2013, reports state that STD rates have only slightly increased, however, enough to keep them in the top spot as #1 city in the US for STD prevalence.

Get Checked

When not holding the number 1 spot, St. Louis has remained within the Top 5 cities in the US with highest STD rates.

With stats as high as these, it is even more important for sexually active individuals to be tested and screened for STD’s regularly. With technology, it is even easier to keep testing safe and confidential. Purchase online and take your order to any lab in your area- simple as that! For your convenience, here are some labs located in the St. Louis area.
