What are the STI test options in Imperial Beach,CA?

Imperial Beach, the West Coast’s southernmost city, experiences all of the cons that come with being near several large cities. Due to its proximity to densely populated areas, Imperial Beach can often act as a hub for sexually transmitted diseases and higher rates of unsafe sexual practices, being just 5km from downtown Tijuana and 22km from downtown San Diego. 

Between 1998 and 2017, STDs in San Diego County have dramatically increased from 7,006 cases per year to 20,801 cases per year. More recently, cases of chlamydia increased by 10% from 18,904 cases in 2016 to 20,801 cases in 2017, with young women, aged 20 to 24 years, reporting the highest rate of infection. 

Young men aged 20 to 29 years have the highest rates of infection in San Diego County for gonorrhea, with African-American and black males 3.8 times more likely to experience this infection. The overall rate of gonorrhea increased by 18.4% between 2016 and 2017. 

To help combat the rise of STDs in San Diego County, the U.S. Preventative Services Task Force encourages females up to 24 years to be regularly screened for chlamydia and gonorrhea, and screenings for HIV infections in adolescents. 

Fortunately, there are several STD clinics around Imperial Beach, CA, that may provide an array of STD screenings, including rapid HIV tests, treatments, and prevention services. 

Residents of Imperial Beach can choose to visit community health centers, such as the Imperial Beach Health Center on Palm Avenue, Nestor Community Health Center on Outer Road, or the South Region Public Health Center on Oxford St. 

Some facilities can offer low-cost or even free STD testing, but bookable appointments might not be an option, and the free clinic might not have the ability to provide follow-up care.
