With regular screenings, you can protect your sexual health and avoid passing STDs to your partners. Not only is it important, it’s the right thing to do.

Here’s why: According to the Tarrant County Public Health Department (where Fort Worth is located), half of all sexually active people contract an STD by the age of 25. Fort Worth also ranks as the fifth-highest in the state of Texas for reported cases of gonorrhea.

Community-based organizations offer many resources for testing and treating STDs. Take advantage of what’s available in your community. For instance, the Southwest Fort Worth Health Center offers financial assistance for STD testing, while services at the HELP Center for LGBT Health & Wellness are free of charge.

At-Home STD Testing

Testing for STDs at home is safe, convenient, and private. Performed regularly, it can help you stay healthy and avoid unknowingly transmitting STDs.

You have many options for at-home STD testing. The best at-home STD tests are FDA approved and evaluated for safety and accuracy with fast result turnaround times and support from health care professionals.

At-home STD testing kits should include instructions for collection and test registration, along with materials such as containers and swabs to collect and send your sample to the lab. Most at-home STD tests offer results in about five days through a secure online patient portal.

Choose the STD testing option you’re most comfortable with:

At home: You can test for STDs at home using a kit and send your sample to a lab for analysis.

Ask your health care provider for STD testing recommendations or follow CDC recommendations for STD testing.
