What are the STI test options in Hesperia,CA?
At the southwestern edge of the Mojave Desert you can find Hesperia, California. Located in San Bernardino County where, in 2017, the San Bernardino County Department of Public Health asked for community support in raising STD awareness. By implementing a task force they aim to increase the number of people getting tested for preventable and easily treated diseases. They encourage all sexually active residents of the Hesperia area to get tested.
San Bernardino County reported increases in both gonorrhea and chlamydia back in 2016 with approximately 60 percent of all new STDs coming from teens and young adults (ages 15-24).
After no cases of congenital syphilis in 2011, that number surged to 20 in 2016 and is still trending upwards. Pregnant women with untreated infections risk their infants being born prematurely or even stillborn. Made more tragic by the fact that congenital syphilis is completely preventable, it’s important to get tested at least yearly for STDs even if you have no symptoms presenting.
For affordable, STD clinic locations near the Hesperia area, your best bet is to travel to San Bernardino. There you can find a Planned Parenthood where you can get tested for HIV, chlamydia, gonorrhea, herpes, syphilis, hepatitis C, and hepatitis B—no appointment necessary. Payment is on a sliding scale based on your income (bring proof) and they will not turn you away if you cannot pay. Another option is the San Bernardino County Department of Public Health Clinic. They offer the same tests as Planned Parenthood (except herpes and hepatitis C) and you may be eligible for free STD testing or low-cost services.
