In 2016, there were 160 reported cases of chlamydia per 100,000 people in Carson. Additionally, cases of primary, secondary and early latent syphilis have been reported in the area.

According to the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health’s HIV Surveillance System, there were approximately 246.6 people living with HIV in Carson per 100,000 people in 2016.

If you are concerned about the growing rate of STD infections in your area, there are plenty of resources available to you to help you stay informed about your own health.

Whether you decide to visit a public or private testing facility, there are plenty of accessible available options to you in Carson, like the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health STD Clinic at Torrance Health Center, the Los Angeles County Department of Health Services clinic at Wilmington Health Center, and nonprofits like the Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) at South Bay Family Healthcare Center.

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 Carson, 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 Carson, 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 Carson, CA

It has become impossible for health officials to ignore the growing number of sexually transmitted diseases that are reported annually in the city and surrounding county. For the last twenty years the rate of infection has been steadily rising, according to statistics released by the L.A. County Department of Health and the CDC, and these numbers show no sign of decreasing any time soon.

Chlamydia and Gonorrhea rates are rising in teens and young adults, and statistics also show that both men and women are risk for contracting one or both of these venereal diseases. The number of students that contract the Herpes virus is also rising, along with those that test positive for HVP.

The statistics also show that it is not just teens and young adults that are testing positive more often, older residents are finding that they too are at risk. Men over the age of 25 in particular seem to test positive for some STDs more frequently than other age groups. This is particularly true regarding infectious Syphilis and HIV, which is more prevalent in older men than other demographics.

This alone is enough to cause alarm, since health officials mistakenly believed that these infectious diseases were well under control. Some of the statistics that highlight the importance of regular STD testing include,

  • Women ages 20 to 24 have the highest risk for contracting Chlamydia, according to 2014 statistics.
  • Since 2005 the rates for primary and secondary Syphilis diagnoses in men has been rising, and have more than doubled by 2014.
  • In 2014 men were twice as likely to contract Gonorrhea as women, according to county health statistics.

Sexual Health Education

STD Testing and Sexual Health Education in Carson, CA

In January of 2016 it became mandatory for all public school districts to include comprehensive and medically accurate sex education programs in their curriculum.

Starting in the 7th grade students will now start learning about sexually transmitted diseases and how these infections can be spread. By the time students graduate from high school that state’s goal is to ensure that they are well prepared to face the risks and dangers associated with being sexually active.

Not only will students learn that STDs can be transmitted through a variety of methods, they will also be taught how to protect themselves if they do decide to engage in sexual activity. The proper use of condoms will be covered in detail, not only in an effort to stop the spread of sexually transmitted infections but to also begin to lower the city’s high teen pregnancy rate. In cities where this has already been implemented, the number of teens that drop out due to pregnancy has already begun to decrease significantly.

Students will also be taught that regular HIV testing in Carson is critical for their continued good health, along with the fact that this is currently the only way to positively detect the virus. The important of regular Herpes testing in Carson will even be covered, and school officials are hopeful that this will begin to lower the rate of infection among students.

Sexually Transmitted Diseases and Demographics in Carson, CA

The rise in STD rates over the last twenty years is being blamed on several factors. Previously the main cause was lack of information, but thanks to the recent law that now makes it mandatory of all public school districts to include comprehensive sex education classes in its curriculum this is no longer a contributing factor.

The growing popularity in online dating apps is making it easier for adults and teens to meet and “hook up”. With online dating sites catering to individuals looking for a “one night stand”, it is not hard to see how this could be causing the STD rates to rise in the city.

Illicit drug use is increasing, but not in teens. It is older adults that are often engaging in this risky behavior which dramatically increases their chances for contracting a sexually transmitted disease. The growing number of adults that use and share needles is also being blamed for the sudden resurgence in primary and secondary Syphilis diagnoses.

What is really causing the infectious disease rates to rise is the simple fact that most residents do not feel that regular STI testing is important for their health. Many do not even realize that their behavior could already be putting them at risk, and it is not uncommon for adults to simply feel like they do not need to waste their time and money on a STD test. As long as this continues the city and county can continue to expect to see high STD rates.

Better Sexual Health in Carson, CA
