What are the STI test options in El Cajon,CA?

El Cajon experienced yet another consecutive year for rising rates of the most commonly reported sexually transmitted diseases. Part of San Diego County, the El Cajon area is seeing its highest levels of chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis these last twenty years. Preventing STIs should be high on the county’s priority list.

Infectious syphilis rates were trending up by 15.2 percent between 2016 and 2017.

Early syphilis is being caught at a higher rate in men than women in the San Diego area, with 85.5 percent of those cases coming from the LGBTQ+ community.

The county news center recommends the following way to prevent STDs: talk honestly about STIs with your sexual partners and your medical professional, get screened regularly, reduce your number of sexual partners, and use condoms and approved barrier methods.

The instances of chlamydia are 1.6 times higher in women than in men of this region, with most cases being women between the ages of 20 and 24. The total rate of chlamydia diagnoses rose 10%—a reported 628.5 cases per every 100,000 people. Gonorrhea is surging as well, reporting a whopping 57.6 percent increase from 2015 to 2017. 

There are many options available to you for testing in the El Cajon area, though you may have to travel to San Diego. San Diego County runs four STD clinics that offer testing and treatment regardless of your ability to pay. Those four clinics are Public Health Center in Oceanside, County Health Services Complex on Rosecrans, Central Region Public Health Center on University Avenue, and South Region Public Health Center in Chula Vista. If you’re a young woman under 25, you may be eligible for free STD testing (gonorrhea and chlamydia only) through a county-implemented program.

To find the best services and location for you, use our search tools below to compare location features across El Cajon 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 El Cajon, 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 El Cajon, 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 El Cajon, CA

Over the last twenty years state and county officials have noticed that the number of sexually transmitted infections is rising. While some of this can be attributed to new residents moving into the area, the fact remains that STDs are quickly becoming a health crisis.

Statistics released by the California Local Health Jurisdiction show that the percentage of residents that test positive for any of the sexually transmitted diseases is climbing, and the data shows that the rates for the county has been above state averages for most STDs since 2005. The only rate currently below the state’s is Gonorrhea infections in women, and since 2012 the number of reported cases has started to climb.

It is not only Chlamydia and Gonorrhea rates that are rising, but Syphilis incidents in males are also climbing. This is slightly surprising to some local officials who thought that the city’s rate would be much lower than the state’s. As of 2014 the number of men infected with Syphilis was noticeably higher than those reported for the state.

The data also shows that STDs are not limited to one age group or ethnicity, but that everyone is at risk. African and Native American women have the highest incident rate for Chlamydia, while Syphilis affects Hispanics and Caucasian males almost equally. Young women, regardless of their ethnicity, have the greatest chances of contracting a STD, and this is not likely to change until everyone starts getting tested regularly. Some of the other statistics residents should be aware of include,

  • Chlamydia rates in men and women have been above state averages since 2005.
  • Syphilis incidents have almost tripled in men from 2005 to 2014.
  • African American men are twice as likely to contract Syphilis as Hispanic and Caucasian males.

Sexual Health Education

STD Testing and Sexual Health Education in El Cajon, CA

This school year marked the change in the state’s sexual education program. No longer are individual districts allowed to create their own programs, now they all must follow the curriculum developed by the state. These changes were made in response to the rapidly rising STD rates that are now being called a “statewide health epidemic”.

Abstinence is still discussed and encouraged, but state lawmakers have realized that it is simply not enough to prevent the spread of sexually transmitted diseases. The new programs include current information about how these viruses are spread, along with methods on how students can adequately protect themselves.

While some parents and religious leader did and still oppose the new sex education program, it is already having a positive effect in some parts of the state. Local officials are also hopeful that it will also help lower the city’s own high STD rate. Students also learn how important regular HIV testing in El Cajon is, and that it is still the only way to positively detect the disease.

Regular Herpes testing in El Cajon is also discussed, and school administrators are hopeful that they will soon start to see a decrease in the number of students who test positive for the virus.

Sexually Transmitted Diseases and Demographics in El Cajon, CA

Sexually transmitted diseases are a problem that effects everyone, regardless of age or ethnicity. These factors do play a role in an area’s STD rate, and it is also something that health officials are currently addressing.

To help overcome the differences the state has made it mandatory that all public school districts implement sex education programs. With comprehensive information that pertains to today’s modern views and beliefs regarding sexuality, officials are hopeful that residents will have the knowledge they need to know when their behavior is putting them at risk.

Studies have shown that education is the most effective method of stopping the spread of sexually transmitted viruses, and it can also help dispel many of the myths and misconceptions young people have today. This includes understanding that you can get a STD even if you are not sexually active, and that the only proven method of protecting your health is to be tested at least once or twice a year.

Some of the misconceptions that health officials are hoping to dispel include the fact that HIV is still a deadly disease. While advances in treatment have made it possible for many residents to live full and happy lives, the fact remains that they are still affected by the disease. Illicit drug use among older men is one of the major contributors to the rise in Syphilis rates, and once again testing is the best way to prevent the spread of this treatable disease.
