Many STDs can only be detected through STD testing. If you’re sexually active, you should consider getting tested regularly. Luckily, there are many locations where you can get free or low-cost STD testing in or near Geen Bay.
According to the CDC, there were over 29,000 reported cases of chlamydia and almost 9,000 cases of gonorrhea in Wisconsin in 2019. If you’re sexually active, be proactive about your sexual health by getting regular STD testing.
Many clinics in and around Green Bay use an affordable sliding fee scale for STD testing, such as the City of De Pere Health Department and N.E.W. Clinic at Northeast Wisconsin Technical College.

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.
If you think you might have an STD, it’s best to get tested. STDs don’t go away if you ignore them; they’ll just get worse and could grow into more serious health consequences. If left untreated, some STDs can lead to issues like infertility and more serious infections. You can also spread STDs to sexual partners if you have an untreated infection.
Ask your health care provider for STD testing recommendations or follow CDC recommendations for STD testing.
You can request specific STD tests or a full panel. An STD clinic can recommend tests based on your sexual health and symptoms.

The cost of an STD test will vary by location and test type. Some clinics, usually community or nonprofit clinics, offer free or low-cost testing. Labs, clinics, and at-home testing companies may accept insurance to cover or lower your cost of testing.
Lab testing fees range from $8 to $150. At home tests cost between $35 and $175 per test.
Appointment policies vary by location, so call ahead or check the clinic website before you head in for a test. Some clinics or testing centers accept walk-ins or have same-day or next-day appointments.
Your STD test results time will depend on the test. Some clinics offer rapid HIV testing, which can offer results in less than 30 minutes. Bacterial STD testing (chlamydia, gonorrhea, or syphilis) takes several days to get results, while viral STD testing (HPV, herpes, or HIV) results can take just one to two days.
Community-based STD testing organizations generate awareness and foster social change while providing access to testing and treatment.
If you’re concerned about visiting your regular doctor or can’t afford the cost of private testing, a community testing center may be able to help. While community testing centers may charge a fee for STD testing, it’s common to find free or low-cost testing from these resources:
