STD Testing in Vermont

Getting tested for STDs in Vermont can help you identify STDs early, protect yourself and your partners, and limit the spread of STDs – especially STDs with undetectable or mild symptoms.

While STDs are a national concern, Vermont has the lowest rate of syphilis, chlamydia, and gonorrhea in the country, according to the most recent data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Many STDs are curable. For those that aren’t, treatments are usually available to help manage symptoms and prevent you from passing them on to others. If you’re sexually active, regular testing is the only way to know if you have an STD and get the treatment you need to prevent potentially serious health issues and stop the spread.

There are numerous Vermont STD testing centers where you can get information and free or low-cost screening and treatment. For example, Aspire Now provides free, confidential STD testing, while the three Planned Parenthood locations in the area are other great sources of sexual health care.
