What are the STI test options in Encinitas,CA?

Encinitas experienced yet another consecutive year for rising rates of the most commonly reported sexually transmitted diseases.

Part of San Diego County, the Encinitas area is seeing its highest levels of chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis these last two decades. Preventing STIs is high on the county’s priority list.

Infectious syphilis rates rose over 15 percent between 2016 and 2017. Early syphilis is being discovered at a higher rate in men than in women in the San Diego area, with 85.5 percent of those cases coming from gay or bisexual men. The county news center recommends the following way to prevent STDs: talk openly about STIs with all of your sexual partners and your medical professional, get tested regularly, reduce your number of sexual partners, and use condoms and barrier methods.

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

There are many options available to you for testing in the Encinitas 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 could be eligible for free STD testing (chlamydia or gonorrhea only) through a county implemented program.

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 Encinitas, 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 Encinitas, 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.
