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.
