Welcome to Private Testing Center
Indianapolis has the 11th Highest overall STD Infection rate in the U.S.
Sexually transmitted diseases are not the most comfortable topic, but according to new numbers from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), it’s a conversation you must have with sexual partners. Gonorrhea, Chlamydia and Syphilis cases have reached a 25 year high, with seemingly no end in sight. And the diseases don’t discriminate.
“Anyone that’s sexually active. It doesn’t matter how much money they make, what they do for a living, or whether they think they’re in a monogamous relationship. Every sexually active person is at risk for an STD,” said Dr. Cherrell Triplett of Southside ObGyn.
Indiana also had one of the largest HIV outbreaks of recent years, with almost 200 cases reported in Scott County by the time it was finally under control. The cause of the outbreak was sharing needles for injecting drugs, and unlike urban residents, the rural users in Scott County may not have been educated on the risks associated with sharing needles.
Communicating these messages to the people of Scott County has been a key part of the response to the HIV outbreak, along with providing immunizations, substance abuse and job counseling and other services to area residents. Local officials also instituted a temporary needle exchange program, made legal by Indiana Gov. Mike Pence’s public health emergency order.

Private Testing Center strives to offer affordable, discreet and convenient testing in an effort to prevent the spread of STDs and HIV.
The CDC estimates there are 20 million new cases of STDs in the U.S. each year, with 50% of those new cases falling on young people ages 15 to 24.
In one study, they examined 1,000 adolescents and found that 1 in 4 of them had at least 1 common STD, and 15% were infected with more then one. Most participants in the study showed no symptoms and didn’t even realize they were infected. Even among people who only had one partner in their lifetimes, 1 in 5 still had an STD — but of those with three or more partners, 50% had an STD.
The good news is that many STDs are curable, and those without a cure are treatable. You owe it to yourself and others to find answers and protect yourself. Private Testing Center has 1500 locations nationwide in one of the largest laboratory networks anywhere in the world. Same day appointments are available with scheduling as soon as 15 minutes after calling. The average lab visit lasts just 15 minutes and some results are available the following day.
