What are the STI test options in Evanston,IL?

Just a few miles north of bustling Chicago, lies the town of Evanston. This Illinois city lies to the east of Skokie and is bordered by Lake Michigan on the other side. Evanston is home to Northwestern University, a private research college. E-town, as locals call it, is also part of thriving Cook County. In less fortunate news, STD rates are getting a little out of control in this area. It’s important to get tested often, even if you don’t have any symptoms.

Cook County is one of the most populous counties in America. It’s second only to Los Angeles County. Being a suburb of Chicago means Evanston shares its STD reporting rates.

For 2016, the chlamydia rate of suburban Cook County reached 461.1 per 100,000 people. Most of those diagnoses were found to occur in young women aged 15-24 years. 

For the same year, gonorrhea rates in the Evanston area were 112.7 per 100,000 people. Primary and secondary (P&S) syphilis for Cook County that same year was 8.3 for every 100,000. Chicago reported 743 new cases of HIV in 2017 alone. With 84.2% of them being in males, and 15.8% found in women. 

If you’re in Evanston and need to get screened for STIs, there are a few affordable options to check out. There’s a MinuteClinic in CVS on Central Street and another one in Target on Howard Street. For HIV testing and support, ACCESS Evanston Family Health Center on Howard Street can help you out. The Erie Evanston/Skokie Health Center on Hartrey Avenue tests for HIV and STDs. They have a center in Chicago especially for teens, no appointment, walk-in hours are Wednesday afternoons. For cheap or even free STD testing opportunities, try your luck by heading into Chicago. 

To find the best services and location for you, use our search tools below to compare location features across Evanston 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 Evanston, 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 Evanston, 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.

Additional STD Test Statistics in Evanston, IL

In the area, the most commonly diagnosed sexually transmitted disease is by far and away Chlamydia. Chlamydia rates in the region of Cook County (the county in which the city is located) are at about 727.3 per 100,000 in present day. However, those rates in Evanston were significantly lower in the past. In 2006, for example, Chlamydia cases were found at about 308.2 cases per 100,000 people. This increase in Chlamydia cases seems to exceed both statewide and national trends, and Cook County has a much higher Chlamydia rate than both the state and country.

In addition to having elevated rates of Chlamydia, HIV is also a commonly detected and diagnosed STD around the city and county. The rates of HIV are at about 607.6 cases per 100,000 people. Historically, between the years of 2000 and 2008, the number of people in the area that were diagnosed and living with HIV doubled. The increase in rates over time is troubling and the continued high rates are also worrisome.

Gonorrhea is also an issue of note. The rate of Gonorrhea cases is at around 230.8 people per 100,000. While this indicates that Gonorrhea is a much less problematic than either Chlamydia or HIV, it is still an issue in the area and residents should be aware and cautious of Gonorrhea as well as the more common STDs. In addition to these three STDs, there are some cases of Syphilis reported annually. However, the rates are quite low at around 13 per 100,000.

Sexual Health Education

STD Testing and Sexual Health Education in Evanston, IL

Illinois is one of the few states in the United States that have extensive requirements for sexual education coursework in public schools. The reason for this is that the state considers sexual and reproductive health to be a significant public health concern and wants to ensure that citizens of all ages are aware of the ways that they can keep themselves healthy and get tested.

In fact, some schools in the state start lessons about HIV and AIDS in early elementary school so as to take away the stigma of talking about the virus at an early age giving children an early understanding of how the illness affects people.

Evanston Public Schools has a health curriculum in late elementary school that introduces students to the basics of reproductive health and related anatomical terminology, puberty, and an early introduction to the reproductive and sexual health issues that affect children as they go through adolescence.

However, the bulk of sexual education coursework begins in middle school. Middle schools offer a comprehensive sexual education course as a part of the health and wellness curriculum that places an emphasis on what is termed “family life instruction” as well as a focus on recognizing and avoiding sexual abuse and understanding the types of sexual abuse that can occur.

It also focuses on all aspects of sexual health including STD prevention, testing, and treatment. Parents are given the option to examine the sexual education course materials and opt their children out of all or some aspects of the coursework if they feel it is inappropriate in any way.

When it comes to the demographic influence on STD testing and rates of STD detection, age seems to be one of the most important factors of consideration. Historically and even in present day, the highest concentration of people in the area with Chlamydia were between 15 and 24 years old. In fact, 71 percent of those cases were in this age demographic. Throughout the state of Illinois as a whole, the rates of Chlamydia were also highest among African American residents but numbers were elevated for all racial demographic groups.

Gonorrhea had similar rates and greatly affected young adults more than any other demographic group throughout the area. In terms of HIV, the rates were highest among males. In between 2000 and 2008 over 70 percent of reported HIV cases were among males. Of the HIV cases reported in males and females alike, the largest percentages were among non-Hispanic African American and Hispanic peoples.
