STD Testing in Wyoming

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

STDs are a national concern, but Wyoming has one of the nation’s lower rates of chlamydia and gonorrhea, according to the most recent data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The state is ranked 45th and 46th for the diseases, respectively, and 49th in the nation for syphilis.

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 Wyoming STD testing resources where you can get answers to your questions about STDs and get tested, often for free or at a low cost. The county public health departments offer low-cost or no-cost testing through a voucher program with KnoWyo.
