What are the STI test options in Carlsbad,CA?

North of San Diego, in California, along the Pacific coastline you’ll find the city of Carlsbad. Health officials in SoCal urge residents not to be laidback when it comes to their sexual health. Getting tested early and often is the best way to combat rising rates of sexually transmitted diseases.

Part of San Diego County, the Carlsbad area is experiencing its highest levels of chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis this decade. The instances of chlamydia are 1.6 times higher in women than in men of this area, with most cases being young women between 20 and 24.

The total rate of chlamydia diagnoses rose 10 percent—a reported 628.5 cases per every 100,000 people. Gonorrhea is ramping up as well, reporting a 57.6 percent increase from 2015 to 2017. Primary and secondary syphilis rates rose over 15 percent between 2016 and 2017. 

If you’re in the Carlsbad area and looking to get tested, there are a few affordable options nearby. The closest Planned Parenthood is a bit north, in the city of Vista. They test for and treat the following STDs: bacterial vaginosis (BV), trichomoniasis, chlamydia, gonorrhea, genital warts, herpes, and syphilis. They also test and can diagnose HIV, but this location does not offer treatment for it. Another option is the Medical Testing Center on Camino De Los Coches or there is a MinuteClinic located in the CVS on El Camino Real. Walk-ins are welcome but be prepared for a longer wait time to be seen. For free STD testing, watch for STD awareness month events in your local community. 

To find the best services and location for you, use our search tools below to compare location features across Carlsbad clinics with our easy-to-read chart. 

Reviewed by Our Medical Team
Your trusted source for comprehensive and unbiased STD testing locations, statistics, and resources. Backed by board-certified physicians and aligned with CDC guidelines, we're committed to providing accurate, up-to-date information to empower your health choices.

What STD tests do I need?

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention1 (CDC) recommends screening for the most common STDs, including chlamydia, gonorrhea, hepatitis B, hepatitis C, syphilis, herpes 1, herpes 2, and HIV for both men and women. In addition, the CDC suggests women get screened for trichomoniasis.

SaferSTD recommends searching for locations that offer a 10-test panel which tests for the most common bacteria and viral STDs in the U.S. with additional premium add-ons like early HIV detection, if needed.

When should I get tested?

The CDC2 provides detailed STD testing information as to when you should get tested. In summary, you should get tested today if you are sexually active, never been tested before, have had unprotected sex in the past, or if you exhibit symptoms. 

According to the World Health Organization3, the majority of STI cases reported every day, more than one million, are asymptomatic; another reason to get tested today.

You should get tested again in 90 days to rule out STDs that have specific exposure waiting times, including HIV.

How are STD tests done?

STD testing can be a quick and simple process, depending on the type of test you choose and where you get tested. Some may require an oral or genital swab, a urine test or blood sample, or a physical exam to check your genital area for signs of an STD.

SaferSTD has identified preferred providers that require only a urine test, a blood sample, or both without a physical exam.

How fast do I get my results?

The speed at which you receive your STD testing results depends on where you get tested. Before you choose your location, find out how long testing results will take. 

At-home STD testing results are usually 3-5 business days, depending on the manufacturer of your test. You also need to take into account the amount of time it takes to receive the test or pick one up, perform the test, and ship it back, before the lab can analyze your results and report back to you. 

If you test at a public facility such as a neighborhood clinic, you may have to wait a week, if not more for the results, which could delay treatment. If you test through a private facility, they have the fastest turnaround within 1-3 business days. 

SaferSTD has researched and identified the most accredited and most reputable testing locations. Click here to find a preferred location near you.

What same-day testing locations are available in Carlsbad, CA?

Some STD testing clinics offer same-day walk-in options without an appointment. Below are nearby preferred locations that offer this option.

How much will STD testing cost in Carlsbad, CA?

The cost of STD testing depends on whether you select private, public, or at-home testing, as well as the type of test(s) you need.

Several at-home STD options and public testing locations can cost up to $250, with most on the higher end, depending on the brand and type of testing. Public testing fees also vary based on income and welfare eligibility. 

With private testing, you may save money on a low-cost comprehensive 10-test panel that tests for the most common bacterial and viral STDs in the United States. 

SaferSTD has researched and identified reputable locations that offer upfront pricing without hidden fees. Click here to find a preferred location near you.

Additional STD Test Statistics in Carlsbad, CA

STD testing is not usually the first thing on a person’s mind, but it is nonetheless, something that should strongly be considered. While some people may not be aware of their risks, others may put off getting testing because it is embarrassing or inconvenient. STD testing centers are here to offer private and confidential testing services and if you can’t afford to pay for the testing, you may qualify for free or reduced rates at one of the free clinics that are available.

Every time a person gets STD testing they are helping to solve the problem of the STD epidemic. Important information is gathered from each client that helps to identify who is at risk. There is no need to worry about your privacy because the only data that is taken is age, financial status, gender, type of STD and area of residence. No names are used because your confidentiality is strictly protected by law. The data is sent to the Center for Disease Control so they can combine it with all of the other testing data for people nationwide to determine trends and patterns in the spread of these diseases.

  • Chlamydia- 490.6
  • Gonorrhea- 106.5
  • Syphilis (Primary and Secondary)- 30.7

STD Testing Carlsbad, CA

Percentages for Chlamydia, Gonorrhea and Syphilis are remarkably higher than those of the averages for the State of California. This creates a serious concern for the sexual health of the residents of the area. Being a resort town may have some bearing on these high numbers. People who are visiting the area from around the world are constantly coming and going to enjoy the festivities that are offered for fun and recreation. Although this city is a fun and entertaining place to live, the unfortunate side effects are the not so pleasant things that are brought in by others.

Chlamydia is the most prolific STD and is seen twice as often in women than it is in men. Gonorrhea is more common in men than in women and it is seen most often in people of Black ethnicity followed by Native Americans/Alaskan Indians, then Hispanics in that order. People age 20 to 24 have higher rates than the other age groups, but there is a disturbing rise in the number of people age 15 to 19 who are being diagnosed. The same is true for Chlamydia which affects women twice as often as it does men. These numbers are based upon figures from those who have actually received testing for these specific STD types. If more people would get tested, it is believed that the rates would skyrocket.

Sexual Health Education

Sexually Transmitted Diseases and Demographics in Carlsbad, CA

People who enjoy a rich life of luxury and recreation may be too busy to consider that their sexual health may be at serious peril. Resort towns have a constant influx of visitors and any sexual interaction between near strangers and locals can significantly increase the risk of STD infection. When little is known about a person’s sexual behaviors, the odds of getting an infection go up.

STD Testing and Sexual Health Education in Carlsbad, CA

There are certain precautions that must be observed in order to protect your sexual health. This is particularly true when meeting someone for the first time. If you cannot guarantee their monogamy or the status of their sexual health, you are putting yourself at risk by engaging in sex with them.

Since this city has consistently shown high and yet rising numbers of cases of Chlamydia, Syphilis and Gonorrhea, the risks may be higher for residents than they would otherwise be in other areas of the state. Each person needs to be aware of the numbers for their area and should consult with health department figures. It is made available to the public to help people to have the resources that they need to be informed about the health of their city.

Better Sexual Health in Carlsbad, CA

Anyone who is at risk for exposure to an STD should get STD testing. Even if you are not showing any unusual symptoms, you could still be infected. If you have had sex with multiple partners or with a person whose sexual history you are unfamiliar with, you are definitely at risk. Your gender, age, ethnicity or financial status are not the factors which determine your personal risk, but rather your sexual behaviors. These include who you are having sex with, how many partners you have, or whether or not you use protection. Order your testing today because it is extremely easy and the follow up won’t take much of your time.
