What are the STI test options in Lakewood,CA?

During 2018, the county of Los Angeles had a reported 50,000 cases of residents living with HIV and high statistics of other STDs. While it has lower rates than some of its neighbours, Lakewood, Ca experienced 14.5 cases of syphillis, 96.5 cases of gonorrhea, and 155.7 cases of HIV per 100,000 capita in the years 2014-2016.

Not to mention, Lakewood’s southwestern neighbours, Longbeach, CA, is also experiencing an STD issue, but at alarming rates. A report released by the city shows a sharp 267% increase in their reported cases of gonorrhea between 2013 and 2017, and an rise in chlamydia rates by 80%. In 2016, the city had an estimated 26 HIV cases per 100,000 person, higher than that for the county, which had 19 cases per 100,000. 

In 2019, officials of Longbeach released a plan to increase the diagnostic rate among people who already have HIV but don’t know it to 90%, reduce new HIV cases by 50%,and reduce new infections of gonorrhea, syphilis, and chlamydia by 20%.

Public clinics and facilities like Planned Parenthood, Miller Family Health Education, and MedPost Urgent Care are available in Lakewood, CA, and many provide free STD testing or low-cost STD testing, depending on your income level. However, these tests may not always be comprehensive or you may experience long wait times. In cases like these, there are also plenty private STD testing centers around Long Beach Boulevard, Elm Ave, Woodruff Ave, and other locations which provide no-wait, comprehensive tests and offer physician consultation for positive results.

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 Lakewood, CA?

How much will STD testing cost in Lakewood, 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.

Additional STD Test Statistics in Lakewood, CA

STD rates in California are the highest they’ve been in 25 years with rates in your county high. With national statistics showing a troubling rise in chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis rates, and with cases reaching an all-time high in 2015, it is even worse in California, where sexually transmitted disease rates are higher than the national average and climbing even faster. We have seen increases in chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis the second year in a row.

Cases in California were the highest in 2015 since the state began keeping records of the three diseases in 1990. Cases have increased about 12% in the California since 2014, the worst previous year.

There were 486 cases of chlamydia per 100,000 people in Californian, 560 in Los Angeles County, and 479 in the United States. The rates are similar for gonorrhea and syphilis. Los Angeles county exceeds California. California exceeds the United States.

Rates are highest for STDs in California among gay men and especially women between the ages of 15 and 24.

The large number of cases of chlamydia is especially concerning as are the rates for syphilis which increased 29 percent in California from 2014 to 2015. The state has the third highest rates of primary and secondary syphilis behind Louisiana and Georgia.  Syphilis is the least common of the three STDs but is a concern because of the increasing number of babies born with syphilis as it is passed on with an infected mother. There were 142 babies born with syphilis in California in 2015, a jump from the 30 cases is 2012. California has the second highest rate of congenital syphilis in the United States.

Sexual Health Education

STD Testing and Sexual Health Education in Lakewood, CA

A recent law requires that all California public school students take sex education beginning in seventh grade. Parents can have their kids opt out of the program if the parents submit a document to the school or district. Then the student will not learn about issues covered such as body image, contraception, and HIV awareness and prevention as these are the topics covered.

The law is called the California Health Youth Act. It attempts to standardize and update sex education in the state. This education must now include gender identity. Before, sex education was optional meaning that if parents wanted their children to take a sex education class, they had to sign up for it.

The new law integrates sex health education with HIV prevention education. The bill renamed the California Comprehensive Sexual Health and HIV/AIDS Prevention Education Act to the new name. School districts must now provide to all pupils in grades seven to twelve with comprehensive sex health education and HIV prevention education.

The most comprehensive sex education in the state covers everything from sexual orientation to abusive relationships. Educators say that seventh grade is the best time to start teaching students about these sexual health issues.

The new act has the purpose to provide pupils with the knowledge and skills needed to protect their sexual and reproductive health from HIV and other STIs and from unintended pregnancy. An additional goal is to provide pupils with the knowledge and skills to develop a healthy attitude concerning adolescent growth and development, body image, gender, sexual orientation, relationships, marriage, and family.

Sexually Transmitted Diseases and Demographics in Lakewood, CA

Demographics play a role in the problems with STIs in your city, county, and state with the problems especially acute in Los Angeles County with the county having some of the most cases and highest rates of chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis in California and the nation.

 

Some experts on the STI rates in your area report that the people most likely to be infected are those who are 25 and younger and these are also the people least likely to seek testing. These experts also point to heavy use of online dating apps as a reason for high STI rates but the exact reason for the increase in STI rates is something we do not know.

 

Officials are unsure why there has been such a big jump both in the state and nationwide rates. They think it could be because people aren’t using condoms as regularly, or are unknowingly spreading infections because they’re going without testing and treatment. STD-prevention systems have been weakened because local and state clinics have reduced capacity or closed in the last few years.

A few years ago, a testing campaign was launched by the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health. The campaign showed that it is difficult to get people to go to one of the county’s twelve STD clinics.

With 2015 rates of STIs at an all time high, in the past syphilis was close to elimination in the 2000s but that is not true today. Reasons are complex but could include a lack of adequate screening and decreased fear of curable STDs.

In California the highest STD rates are with young people, African-Americans/Blacks, and gay and bisexual men, according to state reports. There are also reports that doctors are not using a state law that allows them to prescribe extra medication that a patient can give to their sexual partner who may not be willing to come in for an appointment.

Fear of unprotected sex or multiple partners may be decreasing. In the 1980s and 1990s fear came from seeing people with AIDs dying. Now advanced treatments can control HIV better.

STI Testing Resources in Lakewood, CA

Your city and areas throughout Los Angeles county provide you with opportunities for STI Testing.

Planned Parenthood/Lakewood Health Center is one option where both English and Spanish are spoken. With both Medicaid and Medi-cal accepted, the center offers STI services to include testing, diagnosis, and treatment of bacterial vaginosis, chlamydia, gonorrhea, syphilis, genital warts, herpes, and trichomoniasis. HIV testing and diagnosis are also provided as are STD prevention services including condoms and a hepatitis B vaccine, all available at the Lakewood Health location where the staff is sensitive to your concerns.

An approach to testing in your area is with STD tests ordered online and mailed to homes. You provide a sample, send it back to a lab, and get results. The results come in a few days. You should make sure the tests are accurate and have an established reputation, experts warn. The testing could be in someone’s garage and not accurate. We should collect data on how well these work and get approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to sell similar tests in stores. As it is now, the tests do not need to be cleared by the FDA to be sold online.

In 2009, L.A. County started offering kits online that test for chlamydia and gonorrhea to women under 25 as these women should to have annual screenings for the two infections because they’re considered high risk and bear the brunt of the consequences of most STDs. This was an option for people who were not coming in to get tested.

Planned Parenthood launched an app in California through which men and women can order chlamydia and gonorrhea tests. Another example is the myLAB Box, which sells test kits online for chlamydia and gonorrhea, HIV, trichomoniasis, and hepatitis C. The kits require a urine sample and a vaginal swab or blood from a finger prick to send to the lab. At home testing kits are becoming more common in the healthcare industry. A kit is convenient and for STI testing it saves a patient from having a potentially embarrassing conversation with their doctor.

Some worry that as these tests become more popular, it will be difficult to make sure people are getting treated once they’re diagnosed. In Los Angeles County’s Health Department only about half of the kits mailed out were returned for testing.

You could also go to an area hospital or urgent care center such as the Med Post Urgent Care Center. Another service in the area is one like the STD Check Discounts.

Better Sexual Health in Lakewood, CA

Whether you go to Lakewood Health Center/Planned Parenthood, a high school counsellor or nurse at an area high school, an online service, or a clinic or hospital such as the Lakewood Regional Medical Center, you can find in your area information about STDs, testing, and treatment.

While STD rates are high in the Los Angeles County area, help is available in your city in the way of testing and treatment that is confidential, discreet, compassionate, and effective, with many facilities having a bilingual staff.

Consider how the staff at these facilities is trained to help someone like you, especially with the staff at Lakewood Health Center/Planned Parenthood or any other facility reminding you to check your health, improve it, and keep yourself healthy by always using a condom.
