What are the STI test options in Lake Charles,LA?

In 2015 STD rate was 695.2 out of 100,000, higher than the national average of 478.8 per 100,000 and an increase from the year before.

Chlamydia rates rose 11.9% between 2014 and 2015 and were 45.2% higher than the national average. Gonorrhea also showed an increase of 14.5% between the years of 2014 and 2015, and was also 14.5% higher than the national average. Syphilis increased by 21% between 2014 and 2015.

Calcasieu Parish reported the following rates for 2016: 987 cases of chlamydia, 338 cases of gonorrhea, 17 cases of primary and secondary syphilis, and 31 cases of HIV diagnoses.

In response, the state now has the STD/HIV Program focused on preventing STD transmission through medical availability, social services, and STD case tracking. State health departments are offering no-cost STD testing at certain locations during the month of April in support of STD Awareness Month.

Year round the Lake Charles area has many facilities for STD testing. On Opelousas Street you can find the Southwest Louisiana Center for Health Services, the Southwest Louisiana AIDS Council testing facilities is located on Common Street, and the Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals offers testing at their location on Kirkman Street.

Throughout the year there are also opportunities to schedule free STD testing, though dates are not consistent and may not be soon enough to protect your sexual health.

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.

What same-day testing locations are available in Lake Charles, LA?

How much will STD testing cost in Lake Charles, LA?

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.

Sexual Health Education

STD Testing and Sexual Health Education in Lake Charles, LA

The city offers a number of resources to its residents and tourists to keep them informed about their sexual health. For example, there are a number of free resources online you can use to educate yourself on the topic of sexual health and safe sex practices. Further, the city does provide education on sexual health within the public education system. Finally, the city does offer free sexually transmitted disease testing at a number of health centers around the city.

However, within the 2013 STD and HIV Surveillance Report provided by Louisiana’s Department of Health, the most at-risk individuals were between the ages of 20 – 24, followed closely behind with age groups between 15 – 19 and 25 – 34. The community has spoken out about this issue and feels that more needs to be in order to help educate the youth. Many residents feel that more time needs to be spent on sexual health, safe sex strategies, and STD prevention to students at younger ages.

Many public officials are doing their best to handle this issue. Although the city does offer a number of resources and services to the general public, the issue isn’t declining. In order to help raise awareness for the increasing spread of sexually transmitted diseases, community leaders have considered pushing an awareness campaign to the public (for both knowledge on the topic and the free resources readily available), increasing knowledge within the public education system, and discussing the issue with parents to help them understand the severity of this issue.
