What are the STI test options in Chula Vista,CA?

As part of the San Diego metropolitan area, Chula Vista would be expected to share that city’s STD problems. In fact, the STD rates for the Chula Vista zip codes are slightly lower than the surrounding areas within San Diego County.

In 2015, there were 11,322 people living with HIV or AIDS in San Diego County, with a prevalence rate of 410 per 100K people, just above California’s rate of 376. Health officials are worried about the people still out there who do not yet know they are infected, and who may be infecting others.

HIV can now be suppressed by PEP, and PrEP can decrease the chances of catching the virus from an HIV-positive sex or needle-sharing partner, but people on medication should not stop using protection, as other STIs can still be passed on (health professionals say this behavior is partially to blame for the resurgence of syphilis).

In 2017, San Diego County had 20,810 chlamydia cases, at a rate of 626.8 per 100K people. The gonorrhea and (primary and secondary) syphilis rates were 179.2 and 17.6.

Chula Vista has some STD-testing clinics, including a clinic that provides free STD testing for HIV only, and there are more options in San Diego. Planned Parenthood is located on Broadway, and they test for STIs and treat all except HIV. The fee is on a sliding scale based on your income.

Additional STD Test Statistics in Chula Vista, CA

Chula Vista and San Diego County are experiencing a steady rise inSTDs. The statistics further show that this alarming trend has been occurring over a twenty year period. While some officials point out that these numbers include the larger city of San Diego and surrounding county, the reality is that sexually transmitted diseases continue to be a significant health problem for residents of Chula Vista.

  • Between 2005 and 2014 the Chlamydia rates for females remained significantly higher than the state average.
  • In 2014 there were over 4,400 women diagnosed with Chlamydia.

STD Testing and Sexual Health Education in Chula Vista, CA

The city of Chula Vista does offer comprehensive sexual education classes in its public school system, though parents do have the option of signing their child out. Even though these programs do cover the importance of practicing safe sex and recommend abstinence until they are older, these classes still do not adequately address testing.

While teen pregnancy rates are slowing decreasing, and much of this is due to the aggressive sexual education programs that stress the importance of birth control, these classes do not always want students that a small pill will not protect them from a sexually transmitted disease. Even though city health officials agree that this important information is missing from some of the public school programs, not everyone is anxious to include all of the potentially graphic data in these classes.

This is especially true for some viral infections do not always display obvious symptoms. Regular herpes testing in Chula Vista can prevent the virus among students and also stop embarrassing cold sores from forming.

Regular HIV testing in Chula Vista is also important for your health, and it can also potentially save the life of someone you love.

Sexually Transmitted Diseases and Demographics in Chula Vista, CA

Chula Vista and surrounding San Diego County has a diverse social economic population, which is contributing to the rising number of reported cases of STDs.

Another factor which is causing STD rates to rise is the growing number of middle age men who are engaging in risky sexual behavior, along with the increasing popularity of intravenous drug use. Until these problems are adequately addressed, the beachside city of Chula Vista will continue to see the number of reported STDs continue to rise.

Religious and cultural beliefs that prohibit sexual activity before marriage is making it difficult for many teens and young adults to get regular testing for the common sexually transmitted diseases. This is also leading to many students not being enrolled in sexual education classes, which is only putting their health and that of others at risk.

Until city leaders and health officials can find a solution that is affordable and works for all ethnic groups, Chula Vista will continue to experience a high rate of sexually transmitted diseases.
