What are the STI test options in Gardena,CA?

Located in the South Bay region of LA County, Gardena has had a steady population increase for the last few decades—matching their increases for sexually transmitted diseases. For 2015, Los Angeles County and the Gardena area show a rate of 171 per 100,000 people fighting gonorrhea and chlamydia rates were at 555 for every 100,000 people. For primary and secondary syphilis, the rate has climbed to 15 per 100,000. While this number may sound low, unfortunately, it is a 30 percent increase from numbers reported in the year 2014. 

People of Gardena, don’t despair, there is some good news.

The reported cases for new diagnoses of people living with HIV in the region are continuing to show a steady decline. Medical professionals of the greater Los Angeles area believe this is, in part, due to regular STD screenings, preventive education, and treatment. 

If you’re in Gardena, there are a few affordable options for STD/STI testing available to you. Clinics are mostly located along Rosecrans Ave and Wilmington, south of the 105. They include St. John’s Well Child and Family Centers on south San Jose, north Santa Fe, and Wilmington Avenue, Charles R. Drew University / Oasis Clinic, and Martin Luther King, Jr. Center for Public Health. There is a Concentra Urgent Care on Wilmington avenue as well. For free STD testing and other services, keep an eye out on community calendars, or check out local events especially during April, or STD awareness month.

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

Sexual Health Education

STD Testing and Sexual Health Education in Gardena, CA

Last year the state of California adopted a new law known as the California Healthy Youth Act. This act covers sexual health education within the public-school system. It states that sexual health education must happen at least twice during a student’s academic career: once in middle school, and once in high school. Any education a student receives, even in elementary school, must be medically accurate.

Materials used must be appropriate to students of all races, genders, sexual orientations, ethnic and cultural background and cover students with disabilities as well. Teachers are also required to teach about healthy relationships as well as how to make good decisions. A student’s education must also not dictate that abstinence is the only form of safe sexual health. Parents must be notified if their student is being taught sexual health at least 14 days before the education begins.

Outside the classroom there are a few opportunities for individuals to gain insight into STI treatment and prevention. There is an online curriculum called Positive Prevention Plus. These curriculum materials provide evidence based instruction that follows California and National Health Standards. The curriculum is also in compliance with the new California Education Code. Their website offers materials that are available to download. The topics covered range from sexual health education to teen pregnancy and prevention.

More Than SEX-ED is a non-profit that is an affiliate of Community Partners. They believe that Human Sexuality is diverse and complex and it is important to recognize it as a necessary part of our lives. They present material that discusses fact-based understanding of sexuality. They also educate on the negative aspects of misunderstanding human sexuality.

Condoms and STI testing can be found at the Planned Parenthood South Bay Health Center. They are open Monday through Friday from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm and Saturday from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm. They suggest that an individual make an appointment before visiting.

Sexually Transmitted Diseases and Demographics in Gardena, CA

There could be several connections between various demographic aspects and the level of STI and HIV / AIDS cases. The first of which is the poverty level within Gardena. The city poverty level falls below the rest of the United States, the state of California and Los Angeles county. Men make 1.21 more times more than women which could connect to the fact that women are the poorest gender demographic in the county. They also make up nearly half the cases of syphilis and a significant portion of all other STI’s.

Hispanics make up nearly 40% of the population and comprise 45% of the HIV cases in the city. However, African Americans (which make up around 22% of the population) have the highest rate of disease. This is particularly true in African American females. African American females are also far less likely to receive preventive treatment. In 2014, it was reported that 34,958 non-Black women received treatment while only 3,039 women received treatment.

There could also be a correlation between the fact that Asian Americans are the highest paid ethnic demographic and the lowest demographic impacted by STI’s and HIV / AIDS. They were paid 1.15 times more than the next highest demographic which is Caucasian and nearly twice as much as African Americans. This could possibly suggest that the lowest paid ethnic demographic is the demographic great impacted by STI’s and HIV / AIDS.

STI Testing Resources in Gardena, CA

There are many locations within Gardena, California that offer STI testing. It is generally recommended that you call ahead to confirm whether you will be required to make an appointment. However, you usually can just walk in. When you call you can also verify that they offer the test you require. For example, some clinics may test for HIV but not Gonorrhea.

Rapid HIV testing can be done by swabbing the inside of the patient’s mouth and with results in as little as 20 minutes. They offer counseling for those whose tests come back positive. Walk in hours are Monday through Friday from 8:00 am to 3:30 pm and Saturday 8:00 am to 3:00 pm.

Better Sexual Health in Gardena, CA

Gardena seems to provide adequate resources, testing, and treatment for the population it has. While there has been an increase in STI’s, this does not seem to be from a lack of information provided both in an academic and medical setting. Based on the new state law, educational curriculum supports and advocates abstinence, while also promoting being smart when becoming sexually active. There is a Planned Parenthood within the city limits of Gardena, as well as other testing and counseling facilities.

Demographics and statistics suggest that African Americans are most likely to contract a STI, though Caucasians are also highly susceptible. Regardless of the statistics, the best way to prevent STI’s is to either remain abstinent or practice safe sex with your partner. Rochester Hills also provides several online resources that help educate about STI’s.
