What are the STI test options in Livermore,CA?
Livermore in California is not just a suburb of San Francisco. It is the most populous city in California’s Tri-Valley Region and is the farthest outskirts of the East Bay Region. In Alameda County, Livermore gets included in the San Francisco-Oakland-Hayward Metro Statistical area and the San Jose-San Francisco-Oakland combined statistical area. That means it suffers from the same STI and STD transmission rates as the rest of Central California.
Since 2013 there has been a 45% increase in diagnoses of chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis, according to the California Department of Public Health (CDPH). That is an increase of more than 300,000 new infections in approximately five years.
Heartbreakingly, in 2017 alone, there were more than 30 stillbirths attributed to congenital syphilis in California; a completely preventable condition. The highest it has been in almost two and a half decades. Doctors in Contra Costa County hypothesize that the increase amongst millennials, the most affected group, might stem from digital dating services and apps. Open communication between partners and STD screening—early and often—is the key to stifling this rise in transmission.
For prevention, detection, and treatment in the Livermore area, there are a few affordable options. Quest Diagnostic is just off of East Stanley Boulevard, Valley Care is on Holmes Street, and Axis Community Health is right off Livermore Avenue. Free STD testing may be available if you’re able to trek into San Francisco to look for it. Public clinics are often crowded and operate on a first-come, first-serve basis, so plan your day accordingly.
