What are the STI test options in Coachella,CA?
According to 2015 data chlamydia is one of the most commonly reported STDs in Riverside County where Coachella, CA is located with females aged 20 to 24 most affected. However, the incidence of gonorrhea has increased as well, doubling since 2010, as has the rate of syphilis cases, rising almost 50%.
In 2016, the Riverside University Health System reported that the rate of Syphilis in Coachella Valley was, in fact, rising to a significant degree, reaching rates of 192.3 per 100,000 of the population, a great degree higher than the national rate of 7.5 per 100,000.
“The data and its trajectory are troubling. Sores from syphilis heighten the risk of spreading HIV. We also know that HIV can exacerbate the pace at which syphilis progresses – a disease which can cause permanent physical damage.”
There are several places you can go for STD testing, such as a Planned Parenthood in Coachella, CA and a series of mobile clinics as part of a health program offering HIV and STD testing by the Desert AIDS project.
