What are the STI test options in DeKalb,IL?

DeKalb, Illinois is an exurb of the 2nd most populous county in America right after Los Angeles County. Being a burb of Chicago means DeKalb shares its STD reporting rates. Those rates have been mighty high in recent years.

For 2016, the chlamydia rate of suburban Chicago including DeKalb proper was 461.1 per 100,000 people tested. Those diagnoses were primarily found in younger women, aged 15-24 years, as is the nationwide trend.

It’s crucial for women to get regularly tested as chlamydia is often asymptomatic, can lead to infertility, and is easily treated if detected early.

2016 rates for gonorrhea in the Chicago region were 112.7 per 100,000 residents. Primary and secondary (P&S) syphilis for the area that year was 8.3 for every 100,000. In 2017, Chicago reported 743 new cases of HIV, with 84.2% of them being in males, and 15.8% found in females. 171 residents in Chicago living with HIV/AIDS passed away in 2017. The Chicago Department of Public Health seeks to rectify this issue by offering preventive services, disease screening, and treatment at little or no cost. Call to find out if you qualify for free STD testing. 

For affordable STI screening in the DeKalb area, there is a Quest Diagnostics and a Physicians Immediate Care DeKalb on the north side of town off the 23. There you can find tests for chlamydia, herpes, HIV/Aids, gonorrhea, syphilis, and hepatitis. Some clinics can see you the same day and may provide results in as little as 1-2 days. 

To find the best services and location for you, use our search tools below to compare location features across DeKalb 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 DeKalb, IL?

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 DeKalb, IL?

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.

Sexual Health Education

A clue to the health of the residents in this city may lie in the demographics. The population of this city is 44,000, up about 13 percent since the year 2000.

Where the median age of Illinois residents is close to 38 years old, residents here average 24.7 years of age in the last data collected. This suggests the presence of a college, of course, but it also suggests a city where there are plenty of young families who could be exposed to sexually transmitted diseases.

There is poverty in the region. Where median household income in Illinois is close to $60,000, it does not even reach $40,000 in this area. The unemployment rate was 5.2 percent in the last check, which was not much different than the 5.1 percent average in Illinois.

All of this suggests a city that stands on its own when it comes to being out in the open. Once you have crossed over Interstate 39, which divides northwest from northeast Illinois, the rambling suburbs and bedroom communities of Chicago are not too far behind. Many of those cities are not like DeKalb, as they have higher incomes and more expensive homes.

The demographics here are mixed, like most diverse cities in Illinois. The population is two-thirds white (66.5 percent), followed by 13.7 percent black, 12.8 percent Hispanic, and 4.5 percent Asian.

Better Sexual Health in DeKalb, IL

The presence of a college in this city doesn’t always mean sexually transmitted diseases will follow. Where some campuses are more Irresponsible when it comes to sexual health, Northern Illinois seems focused on keeping its students safe from harm in more ways than one.

That safety extends to the community. Although the city has had issues in the past with STDs and other ailments, it seems as if the numbers have dwindled over the years. The presence of low-cost or free confidential STD testing means lesser exposure to the evils of chlamydia, gonorrhea, and other diseases.

DeKalb seems to be a model for how to go after STDs and perform HIV testing the right way, lowering the rates in a state that is among the higher ones in the nation for diseases (mainly due to the staggering numbers from Chicago). Still, its proximity to the rural community gives DeKalb a leg up on other cities in the Land of Lincoln.
